If you have an electric razor, or better yet an electric hair trimmer, use that on your legs first to knock down the tall stuff.

Then, use plenty of "gel" lather (it stays on better than the Gillette Foamy style of shave cream).

Take your time, and try to make longer smooth strokes.

You'll probably knick yourself until you get the hang of it.

Finally, have some lotion or skin care stuff ready to put on your legs to reduce itchiness.

Be prepared to feel a bit "weird" at first...pants feel different, crawling into bed feels different, going out in public with shorts feels *really* different.

The good news is, it's a "serious cyclist" tribal ritual, and many women find it a turn on (YMMV).
