Woke to another beautiful sunny day and with thoughts of Alpe D'Huez looming training has to be done. Cycling to work is my mainstay on the bike and eyewear has to be up to the job. I also planned to run a lunchtime to I went for the digitally surfaced Maui Jim MJ Sport Breakwater. This is a great sports frame with a really light polarised lens, ideal for bright and foggy mornings and ideal for running as the frame/lens combo is so light. I wore the frame to work and then ran in it at lunchtime. All good. I am spoilt with an array of cycling specs but having worn the tinted MJs, and the light having faded I switched to a ordinary frame. I certainly noticed the difference, the wind, the lack of around vision and the insecurity of a normal frame. The biggest shock was left for after I got home. While having a quick wash before feeding the kids I looked in the bathroom mirror and noticed dirt in the corner of both eyes. I hope it was dirt and not road grim, it was certainly something I am not used to seeing as I wear propert eyewear. It's easy to forget just how effective cycling eyewear is but believe me when you don't wear it you really notice.
