Windy cycle across Kansas & Perhaps time for a total Beard Off? @WaterAidUK

Windy cycle accross Kansas today from Dodge City to North Bend, flat exposed roads with little, shoulder and big inconsiderate trucks (one in particular, Grrrrr!). Got nearly blown off in 25mph+ gusts. As cyclists know wind is the worst element to ride in.

Not quite half way across yet, but a month today should be in Boston. My hair and particularly beard is getting quite shaggy. So here is challenge, especially for those that have not donated. “I will chop off all my beard” if I get a very decent offer for WaterAid in the next 48 hours via
For those that know I have had my beard since I paddled the Grand Canyon in 2011.
