Posted by Scot Mills on Jul 23, 2018 2:58:51 PM

When it comes to summertime fun, excitement, and adventure, few sports are as enjoyable as mountain biking.

Explore the slick-rock of Moab? Done! Scenic views from above beautiful Lake Tahoe? Ooh, yeah! An epic adventure through the Pisgah Forest? An MTB is just the ticket, and summer is just the time. 

But simply having an MTB isn't quite enough to hit the trails.

Posted by Deanna Yudelson on Mar 24, 2017 8:11:00 AM

 

My brother met his now wife at a party and took her out on their first date to a newly built village by the beach where there is countless restaurants, ice cream shops, luxury shopping, concerts and people watching. They had their first kiss on a bench overlooking the ocean before they headed upstairs to a rooftop jazz bar. Fast forward six years later, he proposed to my sister-in-law on that very same bench and laughed about the quirks and the enticing process of getting to know that someone who you will spend the rest of your life with.

Whether you are on the mountain skiing or snowboarding, on the hiking trail with family or friends, or on the road driving to grandma’s house, polarized sunglasses can keep the sun from damaging your eyes and help you see clearly in the harshest glare. The examples of the negative can be endless, but the resounding solution is a quality pair of glasses to shield your sensitive eyes.

It is just so nice to be able to have that much sun. It opens the doors for so many great activities. Unfortunately, summer doesn’t last.
