My eyes water more and my nose runs more when I wear contacts. Always. Probably because my eyes think there are foreign objects in them and tearing is a natural response.


Thanks to Jeff, who actually posted a suggestion in the original Snot Rockets comments thread. I'm just not comfortable in glasses of any type - prescription, sun, etc. when I'm on the bike.

At the best of times, I see the frames in my peripheral vision and I don't need the added vision barrier (OK yes, I could try frameless wraparounds). At the worst of times, they get coated in snow, slush, grime and frost.

So I'll stick with the hanky, and/or Bill Bean's 'launching' method. I've used both and was too polite to mention the latter :-)

But hey - how about this great January biking weather! WooHOO! I was back into my fall clothes today.

Bill: idea for a subsequent post: best ways to arrange and protect one's delicate region (M and F) from chafing.

  • North America is eventually going to figure out that, for all the right reasons, we need more bicycles on our roads. Dust off your bicycle and go cycling. And if the gas-burning dinosaurs start to crowd you, it's your road and you paid for it. Take the lane for yourself.
