    It must be a lot warmer in South London than North then, I was freezing and there was almost frost on the ground.

    I've been in 3/4s pretty much all year. Just as long as the knees are covered, I'm usually fine.

    Can I ask a question. Does shaving your legs SERIOUSLY make you go much faster? IMHO it's no better a look for blokes than UNSHAVEN legs is a good look for girls. I just think it's a bit odd. But if you tell me you really notice a difference.....?

    its not about the speed, its about the event of a crash. Shaven legs are easier to clean up than hairy legs. I doubt there is actually a significant difference in speed in the two. Maybe 0.00001 of a second.

    I never guessed that. Is that seriously the reason?
