It took close to 2hrs to clean/tune/lube my bike and Lil’ Ryan’s, plus laundry. After washing my shoes in running water, I hung them while cleaning the bikes, then set them in front of a floor fan overnight to finish drying.

I had to wash 2 days of cyclocross kit in 2 cycles to get rid of the mud, sand, and grass.
