How often you you wash!

Wondering do you wash your leg or arm warmers after every ride!

If I sweat during the ride I wash them. If I just stay warm I don't.
My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

It's my preference to wash between usage, but that's not always practical.

When it gets kind of rank I'll through my arm warmers (aka my flannel shirt) into the wash.
I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

For the odd commute, short and chilly, probably not. The metric a couple weeks ago when I wore the things for 3.5 hours, sweating in them the last 2 hours? They got washed real soon.

Depends. Sometimes my "arm warmers" aka hoodie just get dirty. I usually can get a couple days our of my leg warmers aka cargo pants.
