We are very happy to bring back, for a limited time, the Falling Leaves Cycling Cap!

Honoring the last Monument of the season and the last big race of the cycling season, Giro Lombardia. We love the race where the Italian racers always come out strongly. This great race is Sunday, October 6th.

We discovered some remaining fabric from our stock and decided to make enough for a small run- while quantities last.

The Falling Leaves Cycling Cap will be available early this week from our shop!

TGIF: Thinker by Road Holland & Vive la Francaise!

Courtesy RoadHolland

We're very happy to collaborate...

Sharing ideas with like minded folks like Jonathan co-owner of Road Holland. Makers of superb, classic design cycling jerseys, made in Florida. Last July (Tour de France time), Jonathan contacted me of our Le Tour 100 cycling cap and I was more than happy to send him one. That's the image of Jonathan looking like the 'Thinker' with our Le Tour 100 cycling cap. We love the pose, the jersey and our cycling cap.

Our Le Tour 100 cycling cap is a limited edition cap with our own designed and produced embroidery - on sale while quantities last!

French Revolution...

Our love for linen/cotton holds no bounds. Linen is an amazing fabric; lightweight, breathable, anti-bacterial, wicks moisture rapidly, will keep you cool when it's hot and warm when it's cold. We are working on a new production of La Francaise, made from linen/cotton due out soon.

Fall in with Warm Caps

Red Hunting winter cycling cap...
beware you may get the hankering to chop wood
or go hunting!

This morning, a customer asked us...

This is not the first time, many customers have asked us to produce a wool cap without earflaps. We responded with the new Fall caps: Flemish Fall and Presta Fall. I have tested the Flemish Fall wool cap and it breathes and keeps me warm when the temps hover close to the single digits. The Flemish Fall works for me, for when it's not too cold to switch to the winter cap.

If you like to have that extra protection around the ears and upper neck - then go with the full winter cap with earflap because winter is around the corner. 

So, we have you covered - new Fall caps for when it gets chilly and full winter caps when it gets downright cold!

Fall in...

TGIF: We Support Caps Not Hats

Thanks to Bill Strickland.

Carolle and I embrace and support the CapsNotHats movement. Not only making cycling caps stir our passion for cycling we believe that cycling caps should replace the baseball hat on the podium. And, baseball hats should belong in baseball. It would be odd if baseball players started to wear cycling caps. 

If there's any proof that cycling caps are making a comeback look no further to the Tour de France and we thank Omega Pharma for giving the cycling cap due respect!

Chapeau to...

Capsnothats supported by Mark Cavendish, 2013 Tour.

Embrace these winter favorites!
photos Red Dots Cycling

Today is a great day to announce the new crop of Fall and Winter cycling caps!

We're always little more excited and proud when we introduce new and improved caps, so here are six cycling caps for September. We are now carrying two new Fall cycling caps - you may recognize them from the past- the Flemish Fall and Presta Fall caps. We love them and we think you will too! Both made from 100% wool and comfortable to wear almost all year round.

And that's not all! We have new fabric on our working table ready to cut and that means we plan to release two newer cycling caps very soon!

We love our new Fall caps!

TGIF: Made for Flandrians. Full Steam Ahead on Winter Caps!

Three new winter caps!

We're steaming ahead on making winter cycling caps.

It's going a bit crazy as we're pacing ourselves working on another two new winter caps. For loyal followers, you will recognize a few designs brought back to a new life. 

Our photo shoot is moved a few days later than planned so we expect these beautiful winter caps to be in our store very soon. In fact, we already have customers asking for wool caps - we'll have them!

Our winter caps are so well made...
even a Flandrian would love them!

We had a request to remake an old favorite; The Flandrian! 

Yes, we will make it and we are thinking highly of bringing it back. Perhaps with a few small improvements.

If you haven't done so... Like Us on our Facebook page to keep updated on news of our caps.

Winter is going to get... hot!
