Out Of Curiosity
« on: February 08, 2010, 08:46:17 AM »
How many times do you use your arm and leg warmers before you washem?

Silly Question, I know, but I am curious as to what the others do...

thanks

Ditto.  After each use.  They are always soaked when I'm done.

Hmmmmm...Mine dont appear to need it after every ride... in fact they are not even usually soaked?  Is it cause I only usem when the temp is below 50 and naturally you sweat less at those temps?  I wonder?

I used mine this past saturday and my leg warmers but they dont stink and were not even sweaty when I took them off?

And I normally do sweat like a beast as well..

thanks for the input BTW.

LOL, I am to the point where my riding is at a ZEN Level.

What does that mean.. It means I ride as hard as I feel and as hard as the course permits.

Read between the lines.  I am a slow poke.

LOL... AND it suits me fine, gosh!

Washing your cycling gear may result in lost mojo.  Don't do it.
