I posted I was in the market for a new cap and the nominations were here… but first.
Dear Lucy, my darling wife. There is no easy way to says this but… I bought another cycling cap. It’s a good one and from a deserving artisan. Artisans need support.
I promise I will only wear it cycling, apres cycling, doing maintenance, on the trainer, at meet-ups and other related cycling events. I promise I will not insist on wearing it to our children’s school parent teacher night, quiz night or fete. I will not wear it to adult social engagements, work, work events, Christmas parties.
To my children.. I will not promise not to embarrass you. My dad wore a tam ‘o shanter and later a sort or leather gay bikers hat (he insisted it was for sailing). I should be able to carry on that tradition.
Thank you… I love you… I do..
Now, the winner (as chosen by me) was Richard Lee’s Routier from Gal Studios. I chose it because I reckoned I needed less advertising on my head. I also wanted something for everyday use or going out (despite my apology to said family.) I have a great one from Rocket Fuel Style but it has a reflective stripe down it and across the peak — good for not getting hit by a car but not so good when socialising and a there is a camera with a flash!
