Following discussion at work about how we would cope with so few clothes, I thought I had better report back. Well, it is working out well as planned. It is a drag to hand wash every night, especially when we are tired after a big ride it is the last thing you feel like. However the clothes are drying overnight as our accommodation is warm. I would recommend the Katmandu quick dry underwear. Our shorts and riding shirts are also quick dry and dry enough to put on in the morning. Socks not so and also not the cotton T-shirts. We have had to resort to hanging these off the sleeping bag at the back of our bikes on one or two days. We basically wear the same clothes every day for riding and then have a change of clothes for the evening which we wash every few days as necessary. I would say we could get by with even fewer clothes than we have as I have items I have not yet worn.
