    Gary Rothera makes some of the finest cycling caps you’ll come across. The good folks at Headset Press conducted a little interview with him recently – check that out here. I’ve never personally met Gary, but Hunt actually attended school with his sister and the last time we were down in the Philadelphia area two summers ago his parents were kind enough to let us crash at their house, which is just outside of Philly.

    Gary seems like a real standup guy; not only from reading this interview but also from the generosity and kindness of his folks. I remember we spent the first night at their place and were beyond grateful for the warm meal and couch space. Upon finding out we’d be in Philly for an extra night, they immediately extended our stay despite having to leave that morning to take Elizabeth back to college. Yup, we actually had the house to ourselves the second night…talk about some great and very trusting people.

    Get your next cycling cap from Rothera Cycling. While you’re at it why not make it a custom order?

  • Walz Cycling Caps & Great Rock


    Believe the beard. You’ve got multiple bikes, so naturally you need a plethora of cycling caps to complement the stable.

  • Rule #22

    Velominati Rule#22

    I love Velominati. If it’s not part of your regular surfing, I’d suggest bookmarking it. Here’s a little blurb from their series of ‘looking pro':

    “Rule #22 is perhaps the most complicated Rule amongst the (currently) 85. Part of the complexity springs from the fact that we are all very attached to this small cotton cap. Off the bike, it was once a badge used to recognize one of our own; now it has been taken over by the hipster crowd which subsequently ruined it for those of us who wore this hallowed garment with pride. Our response has been to refrain from wearing this garment off the bike and resort to other badges – such as Rule #33 compliance – to identify our own. That said, some of us, in the spirit of Rage Against the Machine, refuse to lay down arms and are fighting to take the power back and callously wear our caps regardless. (Guilty.)
