TGIF: Our Wool Cycling Caps: Bring On The Cold!

Fall riding is here and that means cool temperatures. The old adage is true; in chilly weather you lose more heat through your head than the rest of your body. Our wool and wool blend caps will help keep you warm and comfortable...

Bring on the cold!

Introducing The Heron Cycling Cap!

Our inspiration is Fausto Coppi notably brilliantly winning the the inaugural mountain stage on Alpe d'Huez, 1952 Tour de France. You can read my post here.

We hope flying like the Heron is your inspiration too!

New & Final Batch Of Inner Tube Wallets

Piccola Bike Inner Tube Wallet

We decided to make available, one last time, a final batch of new recycled inner tube wallets. Why? Our small studio is not big enough to accommodate the space needed to wash, prepare, store and produce rubber inner tube products. Have a look at our inner tube wallets here. We've included quite a fun, colorful choice of fabric patterns to choose from. If we can find a larger space required to produce our inner tube products, we'll bring them back. Enjoy our last batch of wallets... once they're gone they're gone!

Hint: With Christmas around the corner the recycled inner tube Piccola Wallets will make great stocking stuffers!

Compact and practical to store your cards and some bills.

photo Red Dots Cycling

TGIF opens with our 3rd installment of our recent custom cycling caps enjoyed throughout the world.  From left to right: Shan & Shan Inc. (Australia) & D - D (Massachusetts, USA). 

The D - D custom cap is Dusk to Dawn, a night ride event in the USA. Our client required a reflective ribbon in which we sourced locally to find. 

Saturday is Marinoni Time...

Carolle and I are anticipating the upcoming film, 'Marinoni' at the VIFF!

Now back in stock, Grand Départ Cycling Caps with two choices...

Our new Grand Départ cycling caps are uniquely offered in two styles: Yellow (for the maillot jaune of le Tour) or Vintage Cream (retro throwback honoring the old French teams). Vive le Grand Départ!
