Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

glasses fogging up

i always like my sunglasses to be clear of smudges and fog, but whenever i ride, around 20-25 miles in my glasses begin fogging up, and later in the ride i end up getting water droplets on them. is there anything i can use or do to keep this from happening?

Bike shop sold me a cloth from Smith's that has an anti fog material in it. I guess they use it in ski goggles. Anyway, I use it on my MTB glasses and they stay pretty clear. When my road glasses start to fog I just readjust them on the bridge of my just slightly to increase air flow through them.

Two solutions to your problem:
1) wear sunglasses that have vent holes at the top of the lens. The air will pass across the lenses and defog them while riding
2) go to a store that carries a wide array of swimming equipment (goggles, suits, earplugs, etc) and buy a small spray bottle of anti-fog solution. Swimmers use it on their goggles and it works okay on your sunglasses as long as you don't sweat on the lenses.

There's a product called Cat Crap, funny name but memorable, comes in a tiny red tub. It's the standard used in swim, ski, and construction goggles. Got it at REI.
