Bikes: Some bikes. Hell, they're all the same, ain't they?

I tend to use a visor most of the time, both for sun and rain. I can't stand glare from the sun.

Sometimes I'll take the visor off and stick it in a jersey pocket if I'm on the road bike and I know I'll be riding low for a while (glare isn't much of a problem if I'm nearly looking at the front wheel).

In heavy rain, although a visor helps deflect raindrops from hitting my glasses directly, I absolutely need a helmet cover, or else the rain goes through the vents and washes the sweat salt out of my hair and into my eyes. A cycling cap likely achieves the same thing, but I haven't gotten one yet.
