Just curious how others store their cycling jerseys/bibs/knickers/etc.?

Meaning do you hang them? Put them in a drawer? Zip lock bag, etc.

Thanks

    My wife folds it all and places it neatly in my cupboard. I just take it wear it and throw it in the wash.

  • The ready use stuff lives in a box in the office (where I spend most of my time), and things for other seasons find their way to the wardrobe. It's always washed promptly because I work from home and am therefore household Laundry Monitor, so prioritise it over other, less important items of clothing.

    If that refers to your bib shorts, that's a pretty good way to encourage the development of saddle sores!

    Really...this is a real question...really!

    It is clothing, just store it how ever you like.

    Winter stuff is in storage under the bed in a plastic crate.

    Current stuff is organised neatly in a heap in an open crate in the spare room.

    Thanks all. I was trying to determine wether or not to put them all in a plastic bin or each matching kit in a plastic baggy. They are currently hanging which is taking up much needed space.

    Elderone what are you doing in the kitchen in the first instance? Thats not our place! :P

    Don't you have a garage?

    OP I forgot some of more expensive gear like jackets etc are hung up with the coats and suits in the cupboard but other stuff just folded away.

    Folded neatly in bottom of chest of draws. One pile winter; one pile gloves/mitts; one pile summer and then shoes/helmet squeezed in. if i don't do it, it disappears around the house never to be seen again. I am a bit OCD though!!

    My cycling gear is squashed in a drawer. Squashed cause, dare I say it, I might have too much gear for the amount of cycling I do :shock: Gloves/mitts live on a table beside the bike with the helmet and jackets are on the back of the front door.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
