RYDERS Giveaway

Being a new cyclist I was in dire need for glasses!!!
 Ryders Eyewear was super awesome and sent me some AMAZING glasses! I love them they save me on my rides and protect my eyes great. I feel no wind drying my contacts out :)

Why does a cyclist need to wear glasses?
  • Keeps dirt and debris out of eyes.
  • Blocks wind.
  • Protects eyes from harmful UV rays. 
These are a few that I can think of of the top of my head....

I need new glasses because when ever I ride in my contacts my partner kicks up a lot of dust on the trails and my eyes suffer. I am supposed to wear sunglasses all the time when out doors as I have light sensitive eyes due to multiple surgeries including cataract removal. The sunglasses I have make it impossible to see in dim and low lit light where we mostly ride in the bush. New sunglasses fro riding are actually on my wishlist and I am saving for a pair with interchangeable lenses.

Adalita said...

Ryders Eyewear have two ranges in sunglasses: performance and chill. Personally I would need the performance range, they can be used for any outdoor activity. There are many styles that their sunglasses range has that features premium options such as interchangeable,
photochromic and polarized lenses. All lenses are shatterproof and offer 100% UV protection, they come in a range of tints from 12% - 99%. They all come in a high tech frame. There are too many nice frames to choose from.

I went to Ryders and learned that there are all sorts of options for the right fit.

I need sunglasses because I'm on my last cheap pair. I have never had cool sunglasses. I wear contacts so I get stuff flying in my eyes and sticking all of the time. It's annoying. I also have very sensitive eyes. If I don't have sunglasses on my eyes water and hurt until I either go inside or put some sunglasses on.

I need new glasses because I am currently using ones that are too small for my big head and I need ones that don't pinch into the side of my melon.

Great giveaway!

Looking at their website, I just realized that there is a local dealer in my area. I'm going to have to check it out!

I need new glasses because I lost mine riding on Sunday down on the Cape! Good timing!

BostonGirl said...

At ryderseyewear.com I learned that I may not be hardcore enough but that I can CHILL with the best of them! Did you see the pics? :)

Kurt said...

I need Ryder's sunglasses because my current cheap (free) safety glasses I wear for debris protection are scratched up from both riding and construction projects around the house. A new pair of Ryder's would be great to wear on a bike/run brick. This summer sun is way to bright not to have UV protection, the clear safety glasses have got to go!

I need new sunglasses since I am no longer running exclusively in the dark - I don't currently own any that I could run in, so I'm giving myself squint headaches every morning...

bobbi said...

I was checking out their website - it's cool that they have performance AND chill sunglasses. I'm not sure if I'm hardcore enough to warrant performance wear, but the eybolt version looks super cool!

Java Joggers said...

I NEED new sunglasses because I'm wearing my husband's Oakleys -- too big, and fog too much when I run.

I really would like any of the Ryders performance glasses, as I would use them for both running and biking. And, just for looking cool :)

I could use some Ryders glasses because, well, I don't have any sunglasses! I have been in love with riding my bike for the past three years, but this year have taken on training for some triathlons in August and September! I'm *so* excited about this! As a homeschooling mom of a dozen (yep, all ours!) I am pretty sure that some of my friends think I'm nuts, but I'm having a blast!

I need new glasses because:
1 - I live in FL! Hellooooo sunshine state :)
2 - I've lost/broken 3 pairs of my cheapies in the last 6 months. (What can I say? I have a big head!)
and 3 - I really really want a pair of Ryders but can't afford them ATM...so winning is a great option!

MJ said...

wow! I learned they have adjustable temple tips...meaning they will adjust to fit my head...very awesome. And the anti-slip nose pad is great for the sweaty Florida summers.

I need new sunglasses because I have a daughter who inherited my passion for really cool glasses ...mine mysteriously disappear! I also wear contacts and without glasses the dust really bothers me.

The sun’s ultraviolet rays are most damaging between 10am and 2pm. Even under overcast skies, we should protect our eyes, as the rays of the sun do pass through clouds. And when under a shade, we should still wear sunglasses, because UV rays are reflected by sand and water.
