Stinking bicycle riders
- Back to the stinky department. I was driving past a hospital a couple of hours ago, and
spotted a medical supply store. I picked up for $ 6.95 each, two 8-packs (each about 1
x 4 x 8 inches) of "Comfort Personal Cleansing Bath Ultra-Thick premoistened washcloths
('disposable washcloths')". Made by Sage Products, Inc. [ www.sageproducts.com ].
It seems that cooling off until stop sweating, then do one of these, then some
deodorant, might suffice.
