Should men shave their legs?

If they want to and/or if they are a swimmer or cyclist. I think it's more of a personal preference as well. I have to work out in the south Florida heat during the summer time and find I stay cooler without the leg hair. Personally I just don't like long hair anywhere on my body. I've found that men also get laser treatment to remove the hair to keep from having to shave every week. That is OK, the only exception for men to shave their legs is if they are professional or club swimmers or cyclists. No way would I ever think of shaving my hairy legs, I am a cyclist, one of the reasons why my legs seemed to get so hairy at age 14. However, I enjoy cycling just as a hobby and a good outdoor exercise, I am not a club cyclist and feel that there is no need for me to shave my hairy legs. If I had joined a cycling club I would have been very reluctant to shave them, but I might have had to, I probably would have not been allowed to join if I had refused to shave, however, I enjoy cycling without being in a cycling club, so that means I can have my legs hairy and natural.
