Possibly stupid question

Hi. I am used to training either first thing in the morning or in the evening after work. Due to a change in my work circumstances I am now planning to train during lunchtimes a couple of days a week. This means that instead of showering in the morning or evening after my ride I will now be showering at lunchtimes. From a young age I was always taught to put on clean clothes and underwear after a shower but this seems a bit excessive if I will be changing to ride a few lunchtimes a week, and I wondered what others do after a lunchtime ride?
Just have a shower and put your clothes back on.
This needs to be moved to the 'Personal hygiene and underwear advice' forum...
If you can’t shower at work, wipe yourself down with cologne. Your colleagues will appreciate it, and it will prevent any saddle area problems.
Personally, I buy it in big containers, and then put it in small spray bottles to carry around. Look for Turkish Barbers cologne, it’s much cheaper ( and higher rubbing alcohol content) than small bottles from the beauty counter.
Interesting fact - Beryl Burton never washed with water during the whole racing season, using cologne instead.
It’s better to smell good at work and respect your colleagues. Encourage them to come for a ride with you. 😋
