Been riding hard in wet conditions? Yeah, it’s hard to avoid right now, but Anna Glowinski is here to show us a pro tip for getting your clobber in a better post-ride state.
It turns out that a towel is just about the most useful thing any cyclist can carry in their car. So not just useful for intergalactic hitchhikers, then.
The technique basically involves rolling your wet riding gear in a flat dry towel, then wringing out the moisture to be absorbed by the towel. It won’t get things bone dry – don’t try putting them back on – but they’ll be much less soggy. And that means they’re much less unpleasant to pack up and travel home with.
