Blue Days Black Nights - Cycling Cap

Blue Days Black Nights - Cycling Cap
This is a NEW design for 2022!
An easy-on-the eye Blue Plaid aptly named "Blue Days Black Nights".

This design is not only cool spectrum of blues, it is a tribute to Buddy Holly - the Rock & Roll legend whose plan crashed near Clear Lake on Feb 3rd 1959.

"Blue Days Black Nights" was one of his songs. We like to put a little Iowa history into our designs when possible.

Feb 3rd 1959 is known as "the Day the Music Died". Not only did Buddy Holly die in the plane crash, but did fellow headliners Ritchie Valens and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson.

This year's RAGBRAI route won't go directly by the crash site, but it's 14 miles away from Mason City and there is a shrine in Clear Lake only 10 miles from downtown Mason City.

Don't know (or care) who Buddy Holly is? It doesn't matter if you wanna rock some Blue Plaid sporting the BIKEIOWA logos!


We have matching Crew Shirts and Gemini Tanks too!  If you didn't pre-order, you can buy on RAGBRAI. If we have any left over, we'll add them to the store in early August.
