A few days ago I got to try a new type of swim goggles.

They’re called VICTORY Mirrored Swim Goggles and are designed to stay on your face, have a wider field of view, and also be more comfortable than other goggles.
mirrored-swim-goggles

I actually felt these Victory goggles had better wide-angle visibility and were more comfortable than my Aqua Sphere Kayenne goggles. I tried these swimming laps but I’m sure they also work great for open water swimming.

These are not sold in stores, but you can read the product description below and get them on Amazon if you’re looking to try something new. Also, I got the guy who designed these goggles to give my blog readers a 50% discount – check that out below…

Victory Mirrored Swim Goggles

Are you frustrated with goggles that don’t stay on your face? Victory swim goggles are designed to stay in place — without giving you a headache!

The No-Leak eyecup design and comfortable silicone material will help you swim faster, swim longer, and enjoy the water without having to stop and fix your goggles. Here’s a quick run down on what makes these goggles different:

  • Better Seal — No-Leak eye cups designed to give you a perfect seal, every time — no more stopping to fix your goggles during training or competition.
  • More Comfortable — unique design for comfort and made with premium quality silicone that’s softer while still durable — no more headaches or pain around eye sockets.
  • Greater Visibility — extra wide angle design — see everything with crystal clear vision without having to turn your head and lose time.
  • High Grade Lenses — made from a proprietary polycarbonate material then tinted and mirrored to reduce glare — also coated for Anti-Fog and UV protection, so no squinting or wiping.
  • Cool Style without sacrificing performance or comfort — perfect for the fitness swimmer, swim practice, or open water triathlons — 2 options: Gray with light blue lenses for all times of day, and Black with darker lenses for when it’s really bright.

50% off – 50 goggles available at this discount:

Visit this website and you’ll get an email with a coupon code for 50% off:

The Lumos Bike Helmet is a great idea and invention.

Instead of putting lights on your bike, how about having the lights integrated into your helmet.

During the winter months I like to still get our early and will spend the first hour to two hours in the dark. Instead of making sure my lights are on my bike and ready to go I will just grab the Lumos Helmet.

Check out the video below as to all the features of the Lumos Helmet. There are brake lights and turn light. Pretty cool!

tucson bike pathsThere is currently about 400 miles of trails for cyclists, hikers and equestrians to enjoy in Pima County. According to Pima County officials there are many more paved paths and trails to come.

The Pima Regional Trail System Master Plan calls for 2,275 miles of paved paths and trails. To read more about the detailed plan CLICK HERE.

These include, paths like The Loop Tucson Bike Paths 1.0 and singletrack trails like the Tucson Mountain Park trail system.

Here’s a snippet taken directly from the master plan:

The updated trail system consists of 853 miles of existing and proposed trails, paths, greenways, river parks, bicycle boulevards, and enhanced corridors that connect regional destinations, parks, schools, and preserve areas. In addition, there are 1,422 miles of singletrack level trails. New trail segments range from small segments that infill the trail system to close gaps to long segments that criss-cross the southern area of Tucson where development is just beginning. The trail system includes trails parks, trailheads, and boundary access points to increase user access to the system.

pantano-river-parkRight now the county is working on extending the Pantano River Park to connect a section from 22nd all the way through Broadway and as of this post they are a couple weeks away from completion. So the path will go under Broadway.

Looking forward to when the Pantano River Park path connects all the way to Craycroft to The Loop path.

Check out the Pima County Master Plans for the trail systems and what is coming: => HERE.
