Sunglasses and Cycling


Bolle Sunglasses for Cycling

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again….“my mamma says I was born with a pair of sunglasses on my head”.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a pair of sunglasses on no matter what the season and no matter what I am doing.  No other accessory has been such a strong part of my character and being…and I doubt this will ever change.

Loving the Bike WebsiteI guess that’s part of the reason I’ve posted so many times about sunglasses over here at Loving the Bike.  You can have a look through all our sunglasses related posts by entering the word “Sunglasses” into the search box found in the upper right side of our website.  It’s a great search tool for finding information and articles here on our site.

One of my favorites was this guest post that explained what to look for when purchasing a pair of sunglasses for cycling.  It also includes a great infographic as well.

But one area I’ve never gotten into is the idea of prescription sunglasses and how great they can be for a cyclist.  I can sense a strong push that’s currently happening right now as eyeglass companies realize just how valuable the cycling market can be to them.  But it’s for good reason.

If you wear glasses, I highly recommend you looking into getting yourself a pair of prescription sunglasses.  Although I don’t have any myself, my best advice to you is to get a good quality pair of prescription sunglasses.  These will have a lens that will live up to all the road has to throw at them.  Along with that, I also recommend you getting an updated prescription before purchasing them as well.

Your Turn: Do you wear prescription sunglasses?  How do you like them for cycling?

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
