Time in the Saddle is a podcast series hosted by avid cyclist and radio veteran, Ryan O’Connor focusing on all things exciting in the world of cycling. In the seventh episode, Ryan talks about shaving your legs and finding the right shoes for cycling with cyclist, Chris Willemse Jnr.

In this week's episode, Ryan O’Connor and Chris Willemse Jnr chat about shaving legs for a ride, finding the right shoes for cycling and, the best products for cleaning your cycling shoes.

Whilst most entry-level cyclists don't shave legs, Chris says that professional cyclists prefer to shave their legs for a smoother experience during a ride. But, it doesn't get to the finish any quicker!

Legs aside, how important is wearing the right shoes when cycling?

Chris says, shoes are one of the most important things because "if those things aren't comfortable, you can ride the most expensive bike, you're not going to enjoy it."

Shoes make a big difference... the amount of time you're pedaling in a rotation is actually the amount of time you lift your feet.

There's so many different shoes on the market... It's definitely worth spending a bit more instead of just getting a basic entry level shoe.
