Casquette is French for "cap". In cycling jargon, it is used to refer to the traditional peaked cotton cap worn by racing cyclists.
With the introduction of compulsory cycle helmets for massed-start racing, casquettes have become less common, but most professional race outfits still have them produced in team colours for wearing on the winners' podium or wearing under a helmet in heavy rain. They have also become popular as fashion items in some European, American and Australian cities, often with non-cycling-related designs.
📍Rydal caves, Lake District I must have been to the Lakes hundreds of times but never visited the caves at Rydal. Until last week. They are HUGE. We might come back here in the summer and bring a rubber dingy and some beers and wave at tourists 😊😂 . . . #LakeDistrict#rydal#rydalcaves#cumbria#iltld#lovethelakes
