Thoughts on washing bike

Anyone who lives in an apartment, where do you wash your bike?

This apartment has no spot to wash cars at. I may just have to load it up and start taking it to my brother's in kingwood to wash it up, would love to hear any other thoughts.

Might try that. Was worried about all the extra grime scratching the paint up.

They sell cheap buckets at Walmart. It may be more a pain in the than doing it at your bro's place but it will get the job done.

Ride around until you find a car wash for raising funds to send high school girls to cheerleading camp.
