and where do you live...ive found americans are obsessed with cleanliness and wash in the shower once or twice a day even if they havent done anything other than sit around...do you always shower after a ride...are you clothes dirty after one day....is anyone interested in a non-washing contest..i think i can out un-wash the whole board and still not smell..head,hands,handi-wipes,and tp only...ready,,go..

things like shorts(excepting bike shorts) and pants usually require wearing 2-3 times till they're dirty, everything else once. As for the nonwashing contest. You win. TTFN

I feel somewhat compelled to request that you answer your own questions before you demand it of others. Then, and only then, perhaps you shal get the information that you seek.

once or twice a week is my average..my father showers on sundays at 6...my woman is asking for more though because ive now given her two urinary infections (shmeg buildup) ...if only i were circumsized i could go for weeks...the more i shower the more my pits smell, i swear its true..ive had dandruff my entire life but have come to terms with it, i dont touch it and it doesnt fall out...i change my underwear whenever a new color in my wardrobe catches my eye
Perhaps you should ask yourself...look271

Whether or not anyone CARES about how often you wash or shower, or how many times you've given your wife a UTI. Now go take a shower, for chris-sakes! (And no, we aren't interested in whether or not you're circumcised.)
I think I liked you better as john demike mcmahon

Now isn't that a scary thought? Remember, Ishmaiel, that cleanliness is next to godliness.

I wash after a ride, and wash my clothes also after a ride all the time. I now do this because I caught a body fungus, on my legs, from a combination of things.. sweating, shaving, hair irritation, wetness.
I had to go to a dermatologist after I started seeing some reddish/pinkish looking spots on my legs. I thought it was just acne or something, but it wasn't.
Had to take 2 perscribed pills for 1 or 2 months. Took along time to get rid of. I think its jungle rot or something.

I'll never wear unwashed clothing or go without a shower anymore.

This has got to be the most ludicrous topic I have ever read here on this board. Proposing a contest to see who can go the longest without washing? Lets try another contest and see who can got the longest without thinking a rational thought.

If you bike, you owe it yourself and others to keep yourself clean and unoffensive to others. I live in New York and run into people like you (unwashed)all the time on the subway. This is one of the reasons why I still ride my bike in NYC in the face of all this convenient public transport, because I dont want to smell you. As much as you think you dont smell, you do.

Get a grip and a washcloth and start using the shower for what it was meant for.

He warned us that he was changing his name. Just another stupid post from everyone's favorite tactless and pointless RBRer.

In typical fashion, he can't even spell his new name correctly. Let us not waste more valuable time on him in any incarnation.
valuable time indeed..ishmael

tactless, yes...pointless, no...i think washing is very relevant since everyone seems to do it as soon as they get off their bike..

mee & alice tried this non-washing contest and she won, as she was into this non-stuff business. the reasons i lost are outlined below or in-lined i suppose, as i could never get out.

i wash the bike, i wash the trike; i wash them sumtimes thru the nite. i wash my socks, i wash my singlets; i never never put them in the wringlet.

i wash the shower, i wash the sink; i wash my my bottom till it is pink. i wash the toilet, i wash the bowl; i never never fall down the washing hole. (one tyme lewey's cuzz did, & u-know that story)

i wash all day, i wash all nite; i wash till everything is bright.
i wash with handi-wipes, i use handy swipes; i never never use un handy-types.

i wash the tp, i wash the pee-pee; i wash til i can hardly see-see.
i wash i could stay and tell you more, as i never never pass up a wash-ing store(y).

cheers and non-cheers to all washers & non-washers alike.
we sey "warsh" in tejas, you'all.
it's a slow day in tha hay.

un-message ...
your gettin' border-line un-crazy, jd.
remember the un-pact is not always un-reliable.

cheers
