Prendas Ciclismo at the 2018 Rouleur Classic

For the third year running, we're delighted to announce that Prendas Ciclismo will be at the 2018 Rouleur Classic where we will be celebrating the cotton cap.

After the popularity of the jersey washing line in 2016 and last year's La Vélothèque, we have another unique concept planned for this event that pivots around our love of the humble cotton cycling cap.

It's a symbol of road cycling that has survived many technological improvements and we aim to celebrate the pro look that's been pioneered by many former professional riders in attendance this year with the help of John Pierce.

 

Our #CapsNotHats Hall of Fame

John, interviewed in issue 17.5, has collaborated with us for a number of years and we have chosen 20 timeless photographs that show just how a cotton cap should be worn in our #capsnothats hall of fame.

With the likes of Merckx, De Vlaeminck, Jalabert & Degenkolb at the show and in the gallery, we simply can't wait!

 

The cotton cap is a simple but really useful bit of kit. I don’t tend to wear one in the summer, but from around now through to March, a cap under the helmet keeps the wind off the head without getting too warm and, because the cotton is thin, it doesn’t affect the fit of the helmet much. Peak up or down, depending on whether it’s raining.

A bit of fun too...

Being an online business, the Rouleur Classic gives us a great opportunity to meet both existing and potential customers who all share our life-long enthusiasm for cycling.

If you do happen to come and see us, we can talk caps, ask you who the best speaker has been so far and maybe capture the moment on film!

Long live the cotton cap.

 

Discounted tickets still available!
