One thing that often prevents people from biking to work is the idea of sweat. No, not the fact that they would have to put some effort into getting to work. But what to do about staying fresh and clean around your coworkers. Nobody likes BO.
I’ve found two items absolutely essential for my daily commute – baby wipes and deodorant.
Being the father of two beautiful children (ages 1 and 2) I find myself in plentiful supply of baby wipes. And they are perfect for wiping yourself down after you get to work. Just take a stack of baby wipes and put them in a quart-sized zip lock baggie. When you get to work, take out a baby wipe or two, scrub down all the necessary areas (you know which ones), then apply some deodorant and you’ll be fresh as a daisy. Money back guarantee.
Unless you’re lucky enough to have your own dedicated restroom where you work, you’re probably looking for a good (private) place to do this cleansing. I suggest the handicapped stall in a restroom. It’s usually bigger and (if you’re lucky like me) it’ll have its own sink.
