Right then, now we've cleared up the great helmet debate! What about eye protection? My cycling fast risk assessment says that there is a serious risk of eye injury so I wear glasses (plus my eyes water).
So here's the questions...
a) do you wear eye protection when on your bike?
b) if not why not?
c) have you ever been poked in the eye with a sharp stick, or hit by a flying object in the face, when out on your bike?
d) what proportion of your riding is done without eye protection?
c) yes, branches, brambles, stones, mud, assorted excrement
d) 5% on long steamy climbs
