The two main drawbacks of being a bearded cyclist;

1. Beard getting caught in helmet clip (ouch face)

2. Flies and road crap getting caught in beard



Plus:

3. You probably want to avoid any possibility of resembling Noel Edmonds.

Ah, poor boy.
Taken in by the marketeers who strive to emasculate us purely in order to sell a few billion quids worth of razors!
And the women who find masculinity threatening and try to keep us looking like pre-pubescent boys.

:wink:


Touche sir!!

Although conjugal rights are tricky when the good lady refuses to come within 4 metres of you :lol:

i have a beard. i hold it responsible for the fact that i have a 2 year old son and another on the way.

i love my beard. i dont think i'll ever get rid of it.

i expect my son to have one too (just as any other father would expect their son to support the same football team as they do)....

my beard had frost in it once from a cold ride to work one morning.
i felt very brave and manly that day.

I have a beard. I love it too. It kinda makes me more handsome - by masking the overall ugliness 8)

But in few days it will disappear. Movember on its way... :roll:

There is something deeply worrying about that statement :shock: :lol: (or is it my juvenille sense of humour!)

I sport a beard. Have done so for years. I have shaved it off in the past for Movember and the like, but every person I know actively tells me that I simply have to grow it back and that I look better with a beard! I do have a small chin though and I have been, in the not too distant past, been compared to Gail Platt frmo corrie on the chin stakes.

The beard stays!

No offence but I can see why the beard has to stay.
