I saw this ad outside a tanning salon the other day, en route for a quick training ride along the North Downs and Pilgrims' Way. Questions from non-cyclists as to why I remove the hair from my legs just never seem to abate: why do you do it, does it make you more aerodynamic, how far up do you go before you stop, do you shave, wax or use depilatory creams? And so on.
This promotion seems like an ideal solution to my bathroom invariably looking like a badly-maintained abattoir each time I reach for the shaving foam and do mine - especially the tendons at the back of the knee. Next time I'll go here and get my left leg done. And my right. And can I take advantage of your generous offer and get the middle one done for free?
