- Leg Shaving Roadies?
I’ve tried it, MrsMC didn’t like it, and maintenance was a constant job.
I did like the feeling. It also made women want to stroke my legs, which I suspect is the real reason roadies do it.
I once worked in a gym with an Aussie who raced mtb. In the gym, you could tell he shaved his legs, as they were smooth while he had clumps of body hair sticking out the neck of his shirt, like a gorilla.
One day I was in the changing room when he walked out the shower. He only shaved up to the hem of his shorts. I am still scarred by the experience.Posted 3 years agochipsngravyMember
I remember my first road race. I found myself doing my stint at the front when I heard a shout from behind ‘Leave old hairy legs at the front’ And there I sat, with no willingness from the group to help, until I was totally done for.
That night I went home and shaved my legs.
Conclusion: to be accepted as a racer you need to shave you legs.Posted 3 years agoflippinhecklerMember
Ok I’m toying with the idea of shaving my legs now they are nicely tanned and tonned, however I would feel a bit of a fraud as I don’t race. I will join my clubs chain gang if only to sit on.
Any other wannabe or social roadies shave their legs. Come on don’t be shy. 😀Posted 3 years agodazhSubscriber
I once suggested to Mrs Daz that I might shave my legs and she said she’d take the piss out of me forever and tell all my mates so I bottled it. Terrahawk’s right though, I can see a real practical benefit in it for MTBers in being able to clean all the mud and crap off your legs easily once it has dried.Posted 3 years agoradoggairMember
i shave, from neck downwards. Upkeep aint too bad, chest one day, feet to lycra short line another day, above short line and crotch area etc another day. Maybe 3-4 minutes per day upkeep so not too bad. You look alot better on lycra when shaved, it has its benefits of course and it feels better as well. Prepare for itchyness levels never felt before though the first times doing it 🙂Posted 3 years agogarage-dwellerSubscriber
On a more helpful note (maybe) shave/wax /sugar/epilate/pluck what you want from your toes to the top of your head so long as it doesn’t upset your partner. Merciless **** taking you should man up and tolerate. After all its unlikely to be the first time for people on here that someone’s thought their fashion, clothing or choice of hobby or hairstyle is slightly odd.Posted 3 years agoPeterPoddyMember
I first shaved my legs in 2008 for a long distance multi day event, thinking it would be more practical, for massage etc.Posted 3 years ago
To be honest I just preferred it. It’s cooler, mud falls off easier and I think it looks good and my legs tan better! I’ve kept them smooth ever since and I won’t be going back anytime soon. That said, I’m a very unhairy bloke anyway, it’s all blonde and very fine, so I don’t look like I’m wearing hair shorts when nekkid..! That could be a mistake I think! 🙂
