Save Over 3 Minutes on Your Fondo Time: Shave Your Legs

Shave Your Legs!

Time savings: 3 - 4.5 minutes

People often ask “why do cyclists shave their legs?”
Although there are plenty of answers to this, including:

It's easier for post-ride massage

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!
