As an experienced gel of many years cycling, several issues have struck me during my mileage as being particular to ladies of the female persuasion.

Flaps, for instance. And what to do with them.

That time of the month is another example. Having once been asked by a gentleman acquaintance why we ladies couldn't just let the chamois soak it up, I have come to the conclusion that males are mystified by this entire matter. I spent many years searching for a solution that didn't involve internal plugging, as I dislike that arrangement, but finally came to the conclusion that Tampax or a moon cup were my only options, and moon cups just make me feel queasy.

Now I seek the informed advice of your good selves regarding defoliation below the Tropic of Capricorn, as it were. As a general rule I employ hair trimmers, as I have found depilatory creams to be irritating, shaving produces in-growing hairs that turn into saddle sores, waxing is just too masochistic for me even to have tried, and leaving it alone allows for a luxuriant growth that eventually incurs its own problems of chafing.

I'm assuming that my best bet is to continue with the regular trimming, as I suspect that it would not be practical to grow it long enough to tie into a neat plait.

A vote for trimming here.

Trim.

Incidentally, you should have pointed out to your acquaintance that the chamois, whilst admirable for certain fluid components, just wouldn't handle the chunks.

One remaining option is of course laser depilation and I don't particularly recommend it to anyone other than the most dedicated on the basis that it hurts really rather a lot. I'm inclined to suggest trimming as well.

I find trimming leads to a horrid prickly phase. I prefer the 'chafing' that results from leaving well alone.

If I may interject at this point? Apologies for butting in ladies, but my own fair partner, fairly new to the cycling lark, has taken to liberal use of the ladyshave or similar to tackle the problem. She is dedicated enough to repeat the process daily, but is beginning to consider laser treatment. Has anyone any experience of this?

:whistle: Was I too subtle earlier?

I do. It's quick, it's expensive, and it works, but it hurts like bloody hell.

Wow, that is dedication. I don't know of anyone who's had laser treatment. I am also a fan of trimmage, usually employing hair cutting scissors though. Can be dangerous..... :shock:

Last summer I went riding with a lady who had had laser treatment. All I can say is, it's very nice. Lovely flavour as well, but that's nothing to do with the laser treatment.

Scissors are best left in the hands of a willing accomplice, while the trimmee relaxes and contemplates the important issues of the day. Shaving, OTOH, is probably best left to the owner of the unwanted plumage, as mistakes could be relationship-ending. Anyway, it's good spectator sport!

Arellcat, I shall pass that on. Thank you.

Graham, you are a gent for sharing that.
