Keeping your bike clean isn’t about looking good. It gives the rider a chance to make sure that all is well with the bike. Keeping a clean bike entails not just a wash and a wax but a clean chain, chain rings and cassette.
When you finish a ride or a race you should get out of your bibs/shorts ASAP. After spending some time sweating in them, bacteria will build up. As we race or train hard our immune systems become some what compromised. So bring a changing towel and drop trowel to stay healthy.
