For crying out loud!! Really?? It’s 25 degrees outside and you forgot your HAT??
Nope, this wasn’t a mom venting her frustration with her kid, it was me talking to myself on the way over to Urbandale. I was half way there when I realized I forgot to put my winter hat in the car with my other bike gear.
I sure wasn’t turning around to go back for a hat. I went through the list of stores between home and the park. Who sells hats? Menards? The truck stop? Maybe, but I wasn’t going to find out.
Time to get creative! I realized I could “make” my own hat of sorts out of a ball cap and a bandana that I happened to have in the back of my vehicle. Taaadaaaa!! Head and ears covered. Who needs a winter hat for a bike ride? Sure, I looked goofy, but who cares? Thankfully my bike helmet fit over my diy headwear and I was off on my ride.
