Cycling With ‘HindSight’?

Welcome to autumn… or, as it is here in Yorkshire, the start of summer. Yesterday I was able to crack on with some writing (of the new book about last year’s Grand Tour) whilst sitting in the garden. The first time of 2023. Here’s hoping for more days like that this month. In the meantime… Hindsight? The weekly ‘cycleclips’ email from Cycling UK is always a useful source of current information in the cycling world, including discount offers from the charity. One article / offer in particular caught my eye in this week’s email: HindSight.

‘HindSight’ is a pair of cycling glasses, with a difference. Here’s what Cycling UK had to say:

“You can save 40% on a pair of the worldโ€™s first scientifically engineered rear-view sunglasses. Through its new creation, HingSight aims to empower cyclists and beyond to make smarter and safer decisions on the road. “

Really? How does that work? Well, there’s a video to explain:

You can find out more about these rear-view glasses by visiting the HindSight website. Has anyone actually used them? Do they work? I’m intrigued…

  1. We have done a lot of cycle touring on our own in various European countries in the spring, summer and fall. As the Canadian winter is the best time for us to be away, and Europe seems to have become so expensive and busy at these times, my husband & I are seeking winter cycling trip destinations.

    We enjoyed a wonderful month of day cycles on the island of Cozumel in the Mexican Yucatan last winter with rented bikes but this year are going to try touring in southern Spain with our own bikes.

    We fly into Malaga mid-January and will stay in that area for a week and cycle from there, possibly taking trains to some destinations like Seville and cycle south from there. The Andalusia region seems popular for professional cyclists to train. I would be interested to hear of other cyclists experiences in southern Spain. We plan to avoid if we can, terrain that is too hilly – we are fit but in our early 70โ€™s.

    Wondering if you might consider a series of posts on good winter cycling destinations for those of us who have winter in the Dec-Feb. period. Adelaide was another destination we considered as we look for good cycling infrastructure and not mountainous.

What do you think?
