Leg Shaving

Notices
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

Here's the answer ... ready ? ...... 1 ... 2 ... 3: If you want to shave, then shave. If you don't want to shave, don't shave.

Pick any of the BS reasons for shaving and see if it applies to the tops of your feet.

You should take up swimming, so when you shave your legs for that sport you won't catch any flak in this sport.

You should not shave the tops of your feet, I hear the Yeti look is back in vogue.
