One of the best things about cycling is having the freedom and comfort of being exactly who you want to be. Organisations around the globe have been working hard to promote body confidence, loving who you are and accepting all the flaws, warts and all.
As cyclists, we love to colour coordinate our kit with our bikes, there’s a great deal of personal grooming involved in the process, for both men and women. Cycling heritage is upheld by the strict following of rules: the Velominati.
“Rule 33: Legs are to be carefully shaved at all times” – Velominati
For most women, shaving your underarms and legs is considered more or less a routine beauty maintenance chore. However, the downstairs dilemma wages on. Social convention has influenced how we tend to our lady-gardens, with a variety of hair removal tools at our disposal. When it comes to cycling though, research has shown that going au naturel is better for preventing saddle discomfort.
