Cycling Cap

In 2021 Walz Caps was promoting its Iowa Technical Cycling Cap. The cap made by Walz cycling apparel in southern California near San Diego. The $27.00 cap was probably made for Iowa’s famed RAGBRAI (the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa), a seven-day, 470 miles (800 km) bicycle ride across the state. The cap features the state’s name and stylized wind turbines. Iowa gets a higher percentage of its electricity from wind energy than from any other US state—58% in 2020.
