Shave Your Legs!
Time savings: 3 - 4.5 minutes
People often ask “why do cyclists shave their legs?”

It keeps bandages from sticking if you crash
It looks better…
The real answer is that it is proven to be faster!
How much faster? How about 7% over 40km (79 seconds). Translate that to the RBC Gran Fondo Whistler, and that's 4 minutes!
