Gambare! means “Do your best!” in Japanese and is often said as encouragement to those taking on a challenge. I made this cycling cap (and drawing) for a Japanese friend – hopefully it will help a bit while taking on the fierce Japanese mountains on his bike. Both the cap and the drawing are hand-painted using acrylic markers.


This cap can also be seen on my dedicated Instagram account, @thecyclingcap, which shows many of my 500+ cycling caps collection.
