I spend a lot of time on the road, with my bike and over the past few months, I’ve dialed in just how many kits I need in that time. Say, for instance, I’m going to Santa Cruz for four days. I’ll bring one kit and never have to wear it dirty because of this one trick I’ve learned over the years of life on the road.
Check out the details below!
The trick is, take a dry, clean hotel towel and fold it length-wise, so it’s about 12″ wide. Lay your bibs out on the towel.
Then roll the towel up.
Until it’s in a nice little burrito roll.
… stand on it for around a minute, moving back and forth across the roll. When you take your bibs out, they’ll be almost dry, depending on the fabric. Merino-based bibs will be bone dry, tech bibs will take about 20 minutes to air dry.
Repeat for jerseys, arm warmers, jackets, vests, socks.
This trick has saved me from many stinky bib rides and I thought I’d save you from the same!
