Q: I recently started mountain biking and have the following problem. I am a science geek, and therefore wear big glasses (see picture attached). When I ride my mountain bike over roots and rocks, the glasses bounce up and down on my nose. This leaves my nose bruised and sometimes it hurts a lot. I am afraid to ride hard on the trails, since if I lose the glasses I would have no way of finding my way home. I have tried to tape the glasses to my forehead, but it is painful to remove them because it tears out some of my eyebrow. Do you have any advice for me?
Thank you, John Olsen
A: Dear John-
We’re all geeks in one way or another, so don’t worry about that. The biggest concern I had with your email was your singular use of the word “eyebrow.” Do you really just have one? If so, perhaps a bit of tape on the brow on a bit of a regular basis is not such a bad thing.
The solution to keeping your giant glasses on your face is simple. Chums!
