Rode the beast at Coed Y Brenin Saturday and got caught in the mother of all thunderstorms. Even with Seal Skin mid length and Shimano Winter boots after a few hours water crept in and they became a bit on the useless side. However, they got us round and my issue is with the following day.
The boots were obviously still soaking and made a Sunday ride a bit of a chore. Problem is the manufacturer says not to put em on the radiator or any direct heat. So my question is does anyone have any cheeky underground tips on how to get them back to a useable state as quickly as poss?
It’s Thursday now, they are in the boiler cupboard, newspapered to the gills and still a touch damp. I’m sure this must apply to normal riding shoes also and I imagine would be even worse. When my DX’s got wet in Morzine it was like that till home time 😉

Does it matter if they are a bit damper though? Similar to you, I use Shimano MT60 goretex shoes with mid-length Sealskins and then standard cycling socks…as long as the Sealskins and socks are dry for the next ride, its fine if the MT60s are still a bit damp/musty as there only going to get wet againPosted 4 years agomyheadsashedSubscriber
