The abrupt clank of the ferry ramp dropping on the dock snaps everyone to attention. The cool morning air is already quickly warming as we ready to disembark and start the slow roll to Mill Bay. With giant fir and hemlock towering overhead, arm warmers and jackets are pulled on and zipped up in anticipation of the pools of cool morning shade that lie below these monsters. After a quick stop at the espresso stand, we head in-island toward Shawnigan to swim, sun and eventually set up camp for the night. We'll throw a few of Harkness' sausages on the fire and talk over our plans for tomorrow - North past Somenos lake and deep into the Cowichan Valley.

Hand wash in cold water with minimal wool-safe soap. Squeeze out as much water as possible without wringing the garment. Lay flat to dry in a warm, dry place (preferred), or gently drape the garment from the center over a clothesline in the sun. Do NOT put it in the dryer. Note: Harsh sunlight will fade some colours over time as is common.
Refreshing your garment: Wool garments don't need to be washed after every single use because the wool's lanolin is bacteria resistant. Less washing is the most effective way to reduce associated environmental impacts of our clothing. Instead, hang your jersey in the gentle evening sun after your ride or refresh it after wearing by hanging it in a steamy bathroom. It will be surprisingly odour-free and ready for your next ride.
