comment Is it safe to ride a racing road bike in very wet weather?
Bike racers race in the rain all the time, often without going to any different tread pattern than in the dry. They just lower tire pressure and avoid the line paint.

comment How can somebody with Type I diabetes keep blood sugar levels acceptable during and after a multi-hour ride?
There's an entire professional team of type I diabetic riders, teamtype1.org, check out their site for some tips: teamtype1.org/category/tips-for-diabetics Other than that, I would recommend getting advice from somebody licensed to give advice, it's not really something you want to get bad information about.

comment shaving your legs, arms, or both?
The other, more legitimate, reason is that hairless legs are much easier to clean and bandage and heal after after an accident. And when cycling, accidents are a question of when, not if. You could shave your arms if you wanted to, but road rash on your arms is less common than legs.
