How To Wash Your Bike

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.
