How To Wash Your Bike


Originally uploaded by sipclip&go

If doing this doesn’t put you in the dog house, nothing will! I’ve never been good at washing my bike, and when I try I never seem to get it right (see photo). I’m especially paranoid about the salt and sand eating away at all that metal. I asked Dana for some advice and it was simple & straight forward: Rinse thoroughly, a little sudsy water, rinse again, and dry completely. OK, seems easy enough. Yet when I realized my water to the outside faucet was shut off, the hose was frozen, this got more complicated. So it occurred to me, just give the bike a little bath. And so that’s what I did, in 1950’s retro Easter bunny pink style.

PS–I hate to admit it, but this actually worked pretty well.

    Ha! That’s too funny! My husband just asked me after my ride today if the bike would fit in the bath tub….

    Dana, so what did you tell your husband? Seriously, if I lived with another adult, I’m certain I’d get in trouble for this!!
