The hair "down there" and saddle soreness...

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 thought that all male and female pro cyclists trim or shave. I can't imagine riding otherwise.

Less hair = less problems, IME. YMMV.

Def not a pro; amateur enthusiast only, but those high-mileage rides do separate the kids from the adults.
