To Shave or Not

I saw the following post in the British Paper the Telegraph, The Lycra Files: Around Britain by bike - a close shave - Telegraph. It asks whether cyclers should shave or not... I have a hard time imagining that unless the cycler grows hair like a wooly mammoth that there could be any advantage beyond a millisecond or so in regards to speed. I grant you I am not a competitive racer, but I AIN'T shaving, period.

    You're right. Any aerodynamic advantage gained by shaving would be so slight as to be laughable.
