Carolle & Richard from Red Dots Cycling in Vancouver, Canada are asking for some crowd-sourced funding to build their cap making business. I’ve contributed because I love their caps.
They say: Carolle is the artist/seamstress who loves to be creative with her hands, and Richard is the artist/cyclist, when not on his bike, paints and blogs. From the first time we met in art school we knew we were destined to work together. In 2009, we combined our strengths and set our goal to make the finest classic cycling caps. We also enjoy working with re-cycled bike inner tubes creating one-of-a-kind practical accessories.

Some stories are too big for a regular magazine article. They could just about fill a book! In those cases, we dedicate almost an entire edition of Bicycle Quarterly magazine to a single topic.
The Jack Taylor story in Vol. 7, No. 4 is a good example. My friend Mark Lawrence became friends with the Taylor Brothers during his university years.
I’ve neglected this blog a bit… sorry.
Here is a photo of some recent caps I’ve acquired.
Rapha really have nailed their business model. They kind of make me sick but I am also drawn towards them.
