Yep. Mostly a race day shaver, otherwise clipped. I haven't shaved my gote in about 10 years. I do keep it neat and closely trimmed.

Definitely not a recumbant rider.

of small minds.

I've had a beard so long that my kids, now nearly grown, and my wife throw a fit when I tell them I'm about to shave it. I've put it off for about ten years now.
the actual quote is about "a foolish consistency" nmbill

Inasmuch as there is little objective reason other than pro tradition and muscle definition to justify leg shaving (the aero, massage, bandaging and infection rationales being pretty well debunked), and I not a pro and the the muscles in my face aren't that well defined, it would be foolish of me to worry about shaving my face to be consistent with my legs.
