Testimonial of our Red Dots Cycling Caps: I prefer them to Rapha!

  They are, I prefer them to Rapha - equal build quality but peaks don't snap as they're stiff material, not plastic

Thank you Steve!

Whoa! Our Cycling Caps Now Selling at Whoa! Nellie, Vancouver

Carolle and I walked down to Whoa Nellie Bike Shop on Main Street here in SOMA (South of Main), right in our neighborhood. Where we met the very pleasant owners; Christopher and Nellie.

Their little bike shop is well stocked with all things for the bike commuter. From pumps to colorful helmets, they can supply the needed accessories to make your ride more pleasant, safe and fashionable. After all, you gotta look good while riding. Nellie mentioned that they can customize a commuter bike for you, best that you contact them for that commuter bike you always dreamed of. They are also a full fledged bike shop where you can bring in your bicycle for repair.

During our craft shows, many folks have asked us where in town they can find our products. We are proud and excited to have some of our products now available at Whoa Nellie. Where you can find a small selection of our handmade cycling caps and unique rubber inner tube wallets.

If you are in Vancouver, this is your opportunity to try on our handmade cycling caps and buy our rubber inner tube accessories  and enjoy the fine service from Christopher and Nellie.... of Whoa! Nellie.

New Cycling Cap: SKA-licious Ride to the Beat!

SKA-licious Cycling Cap

A short while ago, we had a special request for a ...SKA cycling cap.

Here it is folks!

We've been looking high and low for a fabric that would be appropriate for this cycling cap. Our aim was to find a cotton twill, but the only fabric we could find was a 100% cotton with the SKA checquered pattern. The cotton is a little too lite weight to make an entire cycling cap, but it's perfect to make the stripe and under brim.

As we worked on the cycling cap, Richard jokingly said it resembles the 'dark side' of the Peugeot cap of the 70s & 80s. That wasn't our intention. We both had a good laugh and we love it so much we continued with the design.

We rarely put in production a custom cap request, but we fell in love with this design and decided to make it available on our website to everyone...

New Fun Kid's Cycling Caps

Our fun yellow, blue & pink kid's cycling caps.

We just added three new kid's cycling caps to our expanded stock for our next show.

So, with more interest in kid's cycling caps, we made; yellow, blue and pink with fun color stripes. Our kid's caps are size: extra small to fit 19 1/2" - 21" and don't let the size fool you. They are made exactly like our adult size caps with our famous craftsmanship.

You can check them out at our next show... the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, July 13-15 @ Jericho Beach Park!
