Oakley’s Greg Lemond Ride in SF!
01-LEMOND-6

Last week in San Francisco, Oakley, Mash and Greg Lemond organized a group ride strictly via social media. We all posted about it, encouraging people from all cycling backgrounds to come along for a chill, no drop ride and crossed our fingers. Would 15 people show up? 20?

Oakley: Chas Christiansen – One Obsession

Taking his bike everywhere that he goes, travelling the globe in search of new people, cultures and experiences.”

Nice one, Oakley.

For the most part, I only wear sunglasses on the road, at least here in Austin anyway. With all the sharp, spiky plant life here, sometimes I’d force myself to wear eyewear but was never 100% content with it. I’ve always had an issue with how sunglasses read the splotchy light found in the woods on my local trails. It was either intense and white, or shaded and dark, leaving little to no middle ground or time to adjust and it was difficult to make out details.

A few of my friends here started wearing these Oakley Prizm Trail sunglasses and swore by them for trail clarity, so I picked up a pair.

Fairends Oakley Jawbones

I don’t usually get “artsy” with product shots but I’ve been digging the new Fairends edition Jawbone sunglasses. The black crystal frame looks great with the signature Fairends blue and red accents. You can see plenty more product shots over at Fairends or just pick up a pair. They’ve got Frogskins as well.
