Quick and dirty Ryders eyewear giveaway!

Old, dated sunglasses!

Mommy, you look like a bug. Mommy, you look like an alien. Those were the kind words my kids had for me recently when I returned from a bike ride wearing these old sunglasses:

Um, ok, I’ll admit, maybe these glasses are a bit dated! So it was good timing that Outside PR sent me a couple of pairs of Ryders eyewear recently to try out.

Much cooler Ryders Wipeout lenses

The first pair, the Hex, is a perfect replacement pair for my old cycling glasses. They come in a great purple color, are far more hip than my old ones, and have a great, lightweight feel to them. The lenses are made of polycarbonate and are shatterproof, according to Ryders. I tried them on a run too, but found that they were a bit too big to fit comfortably under my running hat.

The Jolt

The second pair Ryders sent me, the Jolt, is a great all-around pair of sunglasses. They are lightweight, very comfortable for running, and stylish enough (in my opinion) to wear out and about. 

The good news for you is that I have a pair of Jolts available for a giveaway. This is going to have a fast turnaround because I’ll be without connectivity for a while next week. So do the following and check back on July 29 for a winner!

How to enter:

  • Like Ryders on Facebook and come back and tell me you did
  • Be a follower or become one and tell me
  • Extra entries for spreading the word via blog, Facebook and/or Twitter

    Have an awesome trip to Australia!

  117. I waited, so my name would be spread around on the list and i would be more likely to get picked, and posted your link to facebook. I also used reverse psychology and told people NOT to go there so I could win the glassess. This really works with my friends, and they should all be coming to your blog now. Get ready for lots of new followers (not that you need more, since you have tons already).
