I’m a bicycle enthusiast and design addict and that is why this post on theradavist.com couldn’t pass unnoticed. In fact I fell so hard for the design of this shop that I’ve just added it to my list of places to visit when in Amsterdam 🙂 . Meesterknecht brings the very best of what cycling has to offer to Amsterdam. It’s A bicycle shop and cafe established by and for cycling enthusiasts. Located in the heart of Amsterdam, the shop provides the finest selection of road bikes, cycling clothing and accessories.
Neither Merckx, nor Coppi nor Zoetemelk could have become legendary cycling champions if it wasn’t for their humble “meesterknecht”. This class of tireless riders lead out sprints, set the pace up mountains, provide a small pushs here and there and in many ways, hold the team together. The “meesterknechten” or “super-domestiques” are unknown heroes who ride, work and suffer for the greater good without expecting glory.
And for those of you already in Amsterdam wishing to pay them a visit, here’s their address and opening hours:
Kerkstraat 168, 1017GS, Amsterdam
