    I was never a fan of sunglasses until moving to AZ, now I have about 6 different pair. It's so bright.

    Here's a couple from yesterday. This was seconds after reaching the summit of South Mountain in Phoenix.
    That's me on the left:


    Way down there in the valley is Phoenix/Scottsdale:

    Kaz, that's so rad!! I'd love to get some bike camping in soon.

    Yeah I forgot my sunnies at home. Your options for glasses really narrows when you have a prescription. I think Oakley make a modular set, but I haven't really looked into it much. I was looking into the Giro Air Attack w/ shield for this very reason. I could wear my normal glasses and the tinted shield covers them perfectly.

    I'm totally going for contacts as soon as I get my new vision plan figured out. Gonna have to get over my fear of poking my eyes out.

    It took me awhile to decide that I wanted to do it, but having LASIK surgery done on my eyes has been the best thing I've ever done for them. It's so awesome to not have your eyes itch from old contacts every night. It's also really nice to open your eyes in the morning and be able to see.

    Plus the place did 18 months same as cash, so it helped with the bill.

    I have a friend that has halos at night around lights...but he also had his done 10 years ago when they were still cutting. Mine was all done with lasers and only took a few seconds. So far, no issues at night. Well, no more than normal. I have light blue eyes and they've always been sensitive to bright lights at night.

    It is possible for your eyes to degrade again over time, I've had mine for a little over a year now and so far so good. The thing I'm most worried about is that I might still need readers as I get older. My eyes were on the same Rx for over 5 years, so I figured it was a good time to have them done, they weren't getting any worse at the moment, anyway. We'll see how it pans out.

    It was a big step for me - it was kind of scary to think lasers are shooting into your eyeballs and what would happen if something went wrong. "Look at the green dot and hold" - while these thoughts roll through my brain...am I looking at the right green dot, am I zoning out and moving my eye accidentally, everything just got fuzzy - am I screwed. Luckily all was good.

    I've contemplated Lysik but, to be honest, I like my glasses. When I picture myself in my head, I'm wearing glasses. I'll put up with the inconvenience.

    I've been considering it. My vision is too bad to get any kind of sport sunglasses, and gas permeable contacts sound terrible while riding.

    What ride is that? I wish I lived closer to downtown.

    I think I'm going to run the underground crit tonight. We just moved into our new office which is right next to it. Thought I'd check it out.

    This was PHX LOOPS.

    Every Monday 8PM Civic Space Park. Route is usually about 20 miles long. PHX Bikes & State Bicycle post info on their facebook pages the day of ride. They do one in Tempe on Wednesdays too. Usually a smaller crowd.

    The downtown ride has been growing.. There was 50+ last week and 40 last night so I can only image what it will be like in a few more weeks.

    Nice! I've heard of LOOPS, just never got around to going to one. Hopefully, I'll get a chance at some point.

    You should. Such a fun ride. Group usually will split into 2 or 3 depending on pace you want to ride at. 30 mph guys at the front... 20 mph guys in the middle and some of the slower people behind them.. but they always stop after a few miles and let everyone catch back up.

    Thanks! These are in the Marin/MT. Tamalpias area, but down South has similar roads in the Palo Alto hills. Highway 9/Alpine/La Honda/etc are all beautiful.
