Swedish Meatball Hangover Origin Story:

Many have tried to explain the seemingly inherent need that humans have to test their limits in everything they do. Whether it be climbing the tallest mountain or memorizing as many digits of pi as possible, it seems unavoidable that we will stake out the boundaries of our mortality in whatever ways possible, and maybe in pushing those boundaries, find a bit of immortality. Indeed, this noble explanation is the raison d’etre behind the annual goodr Swedish Meatball Eating Contest Extravaganza Fun Run.

The annual goodr Swedish Meatball Eating Contest Extravaganza Fun Run tests the will and fortitude of the human spirit by challenging its participants to eat as many Swedish meatballs as they can, while also running as quickly as possible through one of the most hellish mazes on earth: Ikea.

The basic premise is this:

Beginning at the main entrance of the Ikea, you must make your way as quickly as possible to the checkout area. During the race, 29** Swedish meatballs must be consumed.

The main rules are simple:

  • At the entrance before beginning, you must consume your first plate of 10 Swedish meatballs, cost £4.99.
  • Once you reach the restaurant, you must stop and consume a second plate of 10 Swedish meatballs.
  • At the finish, you must eat a final plate of 9 Swedish meatballs.

Bonus points may be earned as follows:

  • At the finish, throwing your last Swedish meatball at the nearest co-habitants having a way-too-serious conversation about an Ikea item (i.e., a fight over the colour of the toilet brush added to the cart in the waiting-in-line upsell section, a very tough decision about whether to go with the Bernhard or Leifarne to go with that Mörbylånga, you get the idea.)
  • Eating not only the required Swedish meatballs, but also consuming the mashed potatoes and lingonberries on each plated meal.
  • Taking a shot of Brännvin after eating any meatballs. (Shots are provided at each Swedish meatball station.)
  • If a participant encounters a bonus plate of Swedish meatballs throughout the store, that participant may (but is not obligated to) consume the bonus plate of Swedish meatballs for additional bonus points.
  • Bonus points awarded on a sliding scale if a participant completes the run with actual Ikea products (the more and larger the Ikea products the greater the bonus points awarded, with additional points for building the product as opposed to taking off the showroom floor).
  • Numerous bonus points awarded for finding the Golden Meatball, which is cleverly hidden and may only be found by deciphering a series of clues, each more fiendish than the last.

Participants can lose points for the following:

  • Vomiting (unless said vomiting is done in an Ikea showroom toilet or sink)
  • Laying tiger traps for other participants (that was a d*ck move, Rob)
  • Whistling
  • Stepping on or kicking a puppy, because even though it should go without saying, that’s an evil thing to do and you should be punished in all aspects of life for that transgression.

The winner is the participant with the highest Meatball Score, which is a combination of points earned based on the time to complete the maze and consumption of the mandatory Swedish meatballs, plus all bonus points earned while in the maze, less any penalty points.

While the Extravaganza certainly exacts a physical toll while the participants run it, the true punishment does not begin until the following day. The Guinness Book of World Records lists a Swedish Meatball Hangover as the second worst hangover a person can endure, coming in closely behind a Cocaine and Four Loko (original caffeinated recipe) Hangover. Most participants describe a Swedish Meatball Hangover as roughly equivalent to suffering through a bout of malaria. For this reason, only the truly brave and stupid participate in the annual goodr Swedish Meatball Eating Contest Extravaganza Fun Run. And it is for these brave and stupid individuals that we have forged the Swedish Meatball Hangover goodr Running Sunglasses. May these individuals run eternal, drunk and sweating until they reach the gates of Valhalla! Witness them!

**The number 29 has been very carefully calculated. It is the combined total of top 40 hits by Swedish pop sensations Abba (14), Ace of Base (7) and Icona Pop (1), plus the number of hat tricks Peter Forsberg made (7) during his tenure on the Colorado Avalanche

Cycling Glasses Guide

The benefits of cycling glasses 

Cycling glasses protect your eyes from damaging UV rays, harsh glare and flying debris. Wearing cycling glasses doesn't only offer protection, they can also enhance your visual acuity (your ability to spot objects on the road or trail), colour and depth perception.  

How to choose cycling glasses 

Style 

You can spot cycling glasses from standard sunglasses by their frame design. Cycling glasses sit close to the face and have a wrap-around lens profile as well as curved arms. Standard glasses have a flatter profile.  

Wrap-around lenses offer enhanced peripheral vision when cycling, while a thinner, lighter and more streamlined design improves performance when road racing.  

Lens 

Single or double lenses? 

Single lenses offer more coverage but you're often limited to just one lens tint. 

Dual lens glasses are available with interchangeable lenses so you can switch to tinted versions that are suitable for your riding conditions. 

What are interchangeable lenses? 

Many cycling glasses come with a range of lenses in different shades. You can simply swap the lenses for the conditions you're going to be riding.  

Lens tint guide 

Clear – night riding & overcast skies. Great for protection against debris

Yellow – overcast and low light conditions. Offers improved clarity when light is dim  

Brown / amber – variable conditions. They enhance contrast and improve depth perception  

Blue / purple – low light conditions. Look great, reduce glare and enhance colour perception  

Grey – low to bright conditions. A good option for daily use without distorting colours and reduce glare  

Pink / red – variable conditions. Offer improved visual depth and greatest amount of contrast 

What are photochromic lenses? 

Photochromic lenses tint with changes in light intensity. They're a good option for riders who cycle in unpredictable weather or mountain bikers who switch between open and shaded areas. With photochromic lenses you don't need to switch lenses all the time. 

What are polarized lenses? 

Polarized lenses are designed to reduce glare and reflection whilst also offering improved UV protection. By reducing glare you can see objects on the road ahead much easier.  

Which glasses are best for me?  

It's a good idea to choose cycling glasses for the type of riding you're most likely to be doing. 

Recreation / Commuting – Standard glasses 

You don't need aero designed glasses at slow speeds, or wrap-around coverage. A pair of casual looking sunglasses with UV protection are enough and look stylish off the bike too. 

Mountain biking – Cycling Glasses 

Again you'll have a slower average speed than road cycling so you can get away with a casual style but look for those with plenty of grip on the nose bridge and arms. Variable light conditions means a photochromic lens would be a good option.  

Road cycling – Cycling Glasses 

Fast paced road cycling means a close fit with venting are a good choice. Interchangeable lenses that focus on improving contrast will help you navigate debris on the roads.
