Some believe that the ratio of bike knowledge to beard growth ratio can be summed up by this simple illustration below. Now that I am unemployed and living on the cheap, I really can’t think of any good reason to shave.
I have not yet shaved since leaving London on 11 February, and I am already feeling much wiser in bike than before. I did have a hair cut in SMA for $25 pesos (approx £1.30) a few weeks ago, but she didn’t touch my beardness.
The photo below is actually a few weeks old. Over the next few months I’ll be tracking my growth to knowledge ratio using precise and controlled measurements. I will report back here with new photos to document the progress. I am still a long ways from wizardry, but it’s definitely a start.
