To clean your goggles, put them in a goggle bag then throw them in the washing machine with the rest of your clothes. Remember to take the lenses out first though.

To clean your camera and glasses lenses after a muddy ride, just put them in the dishwasher.

To make your own ‘grease-busting’ hand wash, mix honey, sugar, and olive oil, “boom, job done”.

Don’t forget to give your pump a bit of TLC every now and then. Spraying a bit of lubricant on the shaft should keep it working well.

For makeshift winter insoles, a bit of aluminum foil under your insole will keep your toes toasty in the winter.

Can’t afford waterproof socks? A plastic bag between two summer riding socks will do the trick in a pinch.

Use an old glasses case as a makeshift tool pack to easily swap between your riding bags

A pair of latex workshop gloves underneath your normal riding gloves will keep your hands warm, if a little sweaty, on really wet days.

Spilled some grease on the carpet while working on your bike inside? A bit of WD40 and some elbow grease will get that right out

Keep some carpet tiles in the back of your car. This will keep your feet dry when you’re getting changed at a muddy trail center.

    Do not EVER put your camera or camera lenses in the dishwasher. Dishwasher detergent contains a fine grit that gently sandblasts your dishes to help remove stuck-on food. It is abrasive and will scratch glass. If you have any old glasses that regularly go through the dishwasher, you’ll notice they start to look a little foggy (from the micro-scratches). Not a big deal for a water glass, but a big deal for a camera lens.

    Liquid dish-washing SOAP (not dishwasher detergent) works great for removing grease from your hands, chain, cassette, etc.. WAY better than regular hand soap.
