Strange question but one that has been bugging me. I typically ride with out sunglasses but almost everyone i see has them.
Is it important to have eye protection from debris while on a road bike? i can see a bug getting lodged in your eye if you didnt have them.....
and a second question...if the answer is yes you should have them....do you need cycling specific glasses due to some magic they possses or safety feature (aka shatter proof lenses in the event of a crash)?
I have normal sunglasses but dont want to ride with them if i wreck and they shatter right into my eyeball.
A person i typically ride with just picked up a set of very expensive Oakleys.....whichh are not cycling specifc but im sure are shatter proof.
I guess maybe its a dumb question now that i read my post again
