In last week’s QT, I talked about my own recent experience where my Rx cycling sunglasses got so foggy and nasty that I could no longer see out of them – forcing me to try, for the first time ever, riding without any visual aid.
It worked on the group ride I was doing because my extreme nearsightedness proved to be not quite as big an issue in the close quarters of a group ride. However, prevention surely would have been a better alternative, and one reader wrote in with today’s tip to remedy my “fogged in” situation.

“To prevent your prescription or riding glasses from fogging up and getting blurry in the rain, try coating both sides of the lenses with Rain-X. It has always worked for me.
“The rain just rolls off the front of the lens so you don’t have to use your fingers to wipe them, and if you sweat a lot like I do, it rolls off the inside of the lenses also.”
If you have an idea for a QT, fire away. We’re always looking for good info we can share with fellow roadies. We would love to hear from you with any suggestions you have. Contact us by clicking Quick Tips Ideas.
