To Shave or Not to Shave

Recently I went six months without shaving my legs, and it kinda feels good to be cleanly shaven again. I was shaving my legs before the word “metrosexual” was coined. Even before I was cycling (because I crashed much more frequently on inline speedskates). People still ask me why. I usually tell them that aerodynamics plays little part in the equation, that shaved legs are easier to clean road grime off in the shower, and of course that they’re easier to wash and bandage in the event of road rash.

But that’s all subterfuge. Why do I shave my legs? Vanity, babe…pure vanity.
