Semi-satire on the new-fangled “bicycle suit” that women were starting to wear in order to ride the newly-invented safety bicycle. “La bicycliste et caricature, 1897” by Georges Montorgueil
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring” – Marilyn Monroe. 1949
In 1995 we travelled to Toronto for the Cycle Messenger World Championships. There at the Jet Fuel Coffee Shop our idea for Berlin was born. 9 years later on April 1st 2004 we opened the KEIRIN cycle culture café in Berlin Kreuzberg. Working as bicycle messenger for more than 10 years in cities around the globe Berlin, London, Toronto, New York City etc. we had no clue how it would be to run a business and to “settle”. It was def not easy and we ran into many problems, we still do… Folks were laughing about us when we started selling trackbikes in 2004, as only a handful of people riding them in Berlin.
Or get the Tagesspiegel. Bike special today, includes an article about bicycle cafe’s in Berlin, the all new thing!!!
