That Halo headband I mentioned in the last post is just the latest in my collection of biking accoutrements (I’m trying to stay with the spirit of the Tour, you know). But as such, it’s contributing to a problem that’s been building for some time: I’m running out of space for it all.
When I started biking, I dedicated one drawer of my dresser to bike clothes. I already had some running stuff in there, like shorts, t-shirts, and socks. The thin jerseys didn’t take up too much more space — at first. But then I got a couple more jerseys, and the bibs take up more space than the shorts, and now it’s getting out of control.
I have an embarrassment of cycling riches — but no place left to put them.
I’ve culled out a lot of the running stuff, since I don’t run anymore. I still find that I need an Alternate Plan B. I just have no idea what it will be. I know some folks who hang their jerseys and shorts — from hangars, in closets. That would be nice, if I had any available closet space. I would have loved to take all those things that we’re waiting to shrink back into and store them in the basement until that time comes. But we live in Texas, and they don’t build houses with basements down here.
So I’m looking for some advice from my astute readers. How do you store your cycling kit? Where? As John Stewart would say — help a brother (cyclist) out.
