Today I was wearing my blue Shimano cycling ha while reading on my front porch and a friend stopped by (he lives next door) and asked me why cycling caps are so "weird" looking. He was curious why the brim was so short/small and how a baseball type cap would help with the sun more.
After that I became curious too.
So it got me thinking...Exactly how did cycling caps come to be? Why the short brim? Why do some people flip up the brim of the hat? Why is it exclusive to cycling?
