Shaving legs for the first time

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

I shave my legs in the bath with scented candles like vanilla, and a Norah Jones album, maybe some white wine and colored lighting too.

Just kidding, I look like Chewbacca.

Great mental image. I was about to ask if I could come over for a bath party. Wait...

I rode my first two seasons of racing with hairy legs. Crashed in a race 3 days after my first shave. Sold! Never wanted to go through the aftermath of a hairy crash again.

That’s it right there.
