MessyWeekend are a Copenhagen based sunglass company with a cool social responsiblity program called Clean Oceans and a really cool selection of eyewear products from sunglasses to ski googles. I have been testing out a couple of the sunglasses over the last few weeks.

These sports sunglasses are great for days out MTBing or road cycling. I was really impressed how well ventialted they are and they do not steam up when working hard or climbing hills. The fit is really comforatable and they are super lightweight so you hardly notice you are wearing them.
They come with a spare set of smoke lenses for darker days when you still want to protect your eyes. I have been using them driving too and they really kill the glare from the winter sun on the road.
These offer a more casual style and were my choice for day to day wear. The polarization works well, and the fit is comforatble. I like the style of the reflective lenses and clear frames. They are very lightweight and this makes them feel a little plasticy at first but they seem robust enough so far and have stood up to my daily use and travel.
Like I mentioned earlier MessyWeekend have a great social responsibilty program called Clean Oceans. They aim to help remove 2kg of plastic from the Pacific and Caribbean oceans for every pair of glasses sold. They have partnered with NGO's in the region to affect this commitment. You can learn more HERE.
Obviously there are hundreds of sunglass brands out there. What I like ablut Messyweekend is thier fresh image, cool, minimal, funtional designs and their commitment to improving our envirnment along the way.
If you are considering some new shades for this summer I would highly recommend checking out thier website and rangfe of glasses.
Cycle 200k... in a day
I recently took part in my first Audax Ireland cycling event-the Around Down 200km. For anyone that doesn't know and I would say that's most people - Audax riding is a form of long distance endurance cycling where cyclists complete a course ranging from 100km to 1200km under a pre-defined time. This is generally very comfortable time frame but the real challenge is against yourself, the distance and your watch.
