Not looking smooth

It’s been a great couple of weekends of cycling that saw me complete the Wiltshire 100 mile which was an epic in every sense, and then the more genteel New Forest 45 mile yesterday,
The photo was snapped at around the 89 mile mark on the Wiltshire ride, somewhere up on the downs.

Many cyclists are advocates of leg shaving. They say it is faster (more streamlined), and that it makes legs easier to either massage or to apply First Aid to (where road rash has ensued from an off). I actually think though that the main reason is that it just looks better with Lycra. This shot of me being a prime example, all looks quite slick apart from the fur *laughing*
I may be a MAMIL (Middle aged man in lycra) but I am at the neanderthal end of the spectrum.
