Do you believe eye protection is important while cycling? For a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Sunglass Warehouse, post a comment below with one reason why (or why not) eye protection should be worn while cycling. Two winners will be selected at random from everybody who enters.

I do not have access to your Blogger.com account information (including your email address), so unless you know I already have your contact information, please give me some way to contact you either in your comment or by sending me a quick note. If you have a website or blog I can track you down that way also.

Winner will be selected this Friday. A big thanks to Sunglass Warehouse for sponsoring this giveaway. They were mentioned yesterday in the Memorial Day edition of the Today show. Sunglasses shipped free inside the USA, you pay for shipping for International orders. I will pass winners’ email address along to Sunglass Warehouse.

    I wear sunglasses when I bike because:1) I live in Texas and it's REALLY bright outside.2) I don't want to have some sort of road debris hit my eye or eye area.3) Bugs in the face not fun. Bug in the eye…OUCH!

    I wear glasses to stop my eyes from tearing and getting cold and also to protect from rocks and bugs getting into my eyes.

    I love to wear sunglasses, the bigger the better, in fact I like the really BIG Jackie O type sunglasses. I find they're good for protecting the delicate skin around the eyes plus giving the expected UV protection for the eyes themselves as well. Ditto for the wind factor, blowing dirt, as others have mentioned. Then there is the glam appeal…

    There's just a little bit of unknown material on the streets of NYC that you don't want in your eyes. A half a second of getting the grit out of your eye can be the difference between a fun ride and a trip to the hospital.

    Having a bug hit you in the eye while going down hill is no fun. Neither partially losing site because of no glasses or bad glasses and the wind makesyour eyes tear up. Swallowing a bug is also no fun. When I am mountain biking and the trail is kinda unkept I have had a tree branch hit my glasses. Thank God I had them. CS
