Follow these tips to care for your Cycling Jersey and Shorts so that they will last a long time.
While I love camping, my first true love is bicycling. Bicycling is the one activity that has been a part of my life as long as I can remember.
Special thanks to my parents for always making sure I had a bike as a kid. When I was an early teen they got me a ten speed. I was hot stuff on that thing.
Later as a teen, I got into bicycle motocross. I rode at a local park that was associated with the national group for motocross.
I had a rather heavy bike, but I rode it like crazy. In this picture, you can see my national ranking. Yup 5727, pretty good don’t you think? (smaller number is better 😉 )
When I joined the Navy straight out of high school my bicycle was my primary mode of transportation. In fact, the day I met my wife I was riding my bicycle.
We got married and moved to Hawaii where I rode with a group around the Big Island. Here I am riding my bike on some fresh lava.
Here I am on my road bike out in front of our condo that overlooked Pearl Harbor.
As an adult, I commute to work every day on my bicycle. Lightning and ice are the only two deal breakers.
I ride two or three days a week with a local cycling club. Recently, I completed my first Century (100-mile) ride.
I enjoy riding casually with my family. Last summer we planned a vacation around a bike trail I wanted to ride on. Here we are on that trail in Iowa.
I’ve been in search of a cycling jersey that reflects ME. I couldn’t find anything, so I created my own I call Asolare. In addition to the custom jersey, I had a custom jacket made. Cycling jerseys are not cheap.
Custom gear is even more expensive. It’s important to me to make my bike clothing last, so I treat it well.
Riding a bicycle generates a lot of sweat, which means your cycling tops get dirty quickly. It’s important to hang your sweaty biking gear after use. Turn biking shorts inside out so that the chamois can get air and dry out.
How to Wash a Cycling Jersey and Bike Shorts
Some people wash their cycling duds by hand. I find the best way to do laundry is using the washing machine.
Wash cycling gear in cold water using a gentle cycle. Use a detergent that is tough on stains and odors, such as Member’s Mark® Active Clean™ Detergent.
Hang dry your cycling jersey and other bicycle clothing. We use a folding drying rack in our basement. Yes, I keep bikes in the basement. 🙂
Do not use fabric softener with cycling apparel!
