Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Why shave legs?

i'd call that photo more like, um, normal?

i don't have the bikeforums.net cache to step into this one, but certainly the reason as stated above is vanity and to 'fit in'.

of course, i find that pretty silly. but who cares? whatever blows your skirt up. if thats what makes you happy, well godamit you just go on with yer bad self.

I hear girls/women dig it. No need for any other reasons.

I never, ever shaved my legs until recently, when I gave it a try.

Biggest difference: Easier to get my wife out of bed in the morning by brushing up against her with my stubble!

Your GF just told you that about me in hopes you wouldn't get so mad about our little fling.

Why do women shave their legs? Same thoughts apply.
