Post your questions about bike maintenance, bike problems, kit issues, goggle issues – anything to do with the kit you have which isn’t quite going to plan and you’re looking for an answer why.

Your face is warm the goggles are cold
Dunk your face in water without goggles to cool your face for a minute or two. Then the spit trick, swoosh goggles through water & on

I use this stuff, re-apply it after every few swims, and don't fog up at all

Thanks all - a couple of options there that I haven't tried yet...
Interestingly, I did have some success today in the icy waters of Guildford lido... by using a very old (circa 2009) pair of goggles - had forgotten my swimming toy bag, but luckily found emergency spare pair at the bottom of my kit bag (presumably where they have been lurking for some years) - didn't fog up - just leaked terribly in one eye (presumably all the incoming water prevented fogging). Can't win! :lol:
