So, yesterday I shaved my hairy legs in preparation for a race on the weekend. When I reached the top of my thighs, I kept going, shaving everything below my neck before my SO had time to cry foul. Today, I went for a one hour ride, realizing half way through that I’d made a huge mistake; even with a heavy helping of chamois cream, the buzz cut I’d given my rear acted like sandpaper against my bibs and saddle, leading to a really painful rash.
I’m a hairy individual so hamster pants are a real threat. Do I just have to wait until a rest week to shave, or am I missing something? Has anyone else experienced this?
