Who would’ve thought that? Today 12 years ago on April 1st 2004 we opened our doors at Keirin⚡️ Our idea was more like a coffee shop with a bicycle theme so we can hang out with our messlife friends… We got a bicycle store with some coffee. Back then folks were wondering what this concept is all about? We still don’t know yet… and working on it to be always different than the others. Everybody can open up a bike store and it feels like everybody does, now every other city even has a bike cafe… Lots of things changed in the past 12 years… Not only for the good, our beloved Kreuzbergis going through a gentrificationprocess that is a bit too quick for the mellow Berlin mood, at least one thing is for sure, the bicycle is the future Go ride the bicycle you like and let’s save the trackbike We’re accepting birthday cakes all day long, come over and have a drink with us to another 12 years of bicycle culture… ☕️
This is just so good and could’ve been us, kinda!? Click on the picture to see a West-Berlin / Ost-Berlin story from back in 1984. Unfortunately only in German!
