Some folks think it's an in home theatre, or perhaps an extravagant shower or whirlpool bath to relax in. Me? An in house bike wash station. Now that we're knee deep in the doom and gloom of sunless winter days, nothings nicer than washing up that snow melt and salt soaked bike with warm water and more importantly warm hands.
I've always dreamt of being able to really wash my bike of choice indoors during the winter months. Yeah I've done the typical shower rinse but that doesn't always sit well with those that see the bathroom in a different light and I must agree, the post rinse clean-up sucks. So after a bit design layout I headed down to the hardware store and went to town. This is what about $20 of PVC and shower liners gets you, a full blown, in home, salt rinse station. It's nice having an unfinished, walk out basement. Bring on the wet, I'm ready to go.
More to come this weekend. Live coverage of the WC CX finals at BVLS, 8:00a on Sunday. The Arsenal young guns went top of the charts in the BPL, hopefully AC Milan can get one step closer too with a win over Inter, Sunday at 1:45p on FSC.
Saturday afternoon looks like the best bet for a ride if the rain clears out as forecasted. Anyone down for a road spin? Wind looks a bit heavy swinging hard to the west / northwest after the rain. Ideas?
Sunday snow? Ugh! I need sun...
