    Riding glasses 100% of the time for me: MTBing, commuting and even just faffing around on bikes with the kids. I’ve taken a fly in the eye without glasses and also ploughed my face into the ground in the past, scraping my glasses lens in the process, so no brainer. You only get one pair of eyes.

    Oakley Jawbones with photochromic lens (non-genuine but from a proper optician) for everything except night riding when I switch to full clear.

    Had a friend slice her nose open with her glasses after a cattle-grid induced faceplant.
    A scar is for life but you can get glass eyes.

    A11y – didn’t realise they were Oakleys. Assumed you wore cheap knockoffs like everyone else.
