this may be a bit gross for some, be warned…:
When do you all wash your bike kit? If you’re like me you are on the bike 5-6 times a week and have a similar amount of bibs accumulated that are all “good enough” for (indoor) training.
For energy-, water- and soap-saving I’d want to only wash my sports-kit 1-2 times a week. However I heard it’s recommended to wash immediately after the workout to prevent germ buildup, which makes sense.
Now, I don’t just pile my dirty bibs in a corner but do let them hang to dry after my workout, I just don’t put them into the washing machine until a few days later.
Edit: To be clear, I use a fresh bib every time I ride, I just wash them all at once after about a week in one go.
Now, is this super gross? Or sensible WRT to the mentioned savings? What d’yall do?
Thankfully I have no issues with saddlesores whatsoever.

Thanks and happy training and washing!
