    Hey everyone,

    I was thinking of picking up a pair of Eyeshades. I was just wondering for those of you who own a pair, do you think they would stay on your face when riding a bike (bicycle not motorcycle). I wasn't sure how the fit would be and since they are pretty cheap online I've been tempted to pick up a pair just to have some fun with.

    Let's ask Greg

    But really, unless you've got a very narrow nose or doing some downhill MTB, I don't see why it wouldn't work.

    Definitely worth getting them for riding a bike! They even come with the ear stems that curve behind your ear to stay on better.

    I wore mine cycling the other week, they're great.

    Anyone under about 35 will probably think you look a bit of a tit due to probably not knowing the history of them and what they are, but it's what they are made for at the end of the day!

    They look a bit like you are taking the piss with the 80s fashion on these days, but in all honesty I don't reckon there is a better pair Oakley's for cycling in to this day apart from the Radar Path.
