Your weekly focus on sustainable solutions to make Corporates, Cycling & Ourselves better + all that overlaps! from @Timvdweide, ex-bikeshop owner and consultant @ERMinsight.

You may have heard by now, the bikeshop I co-own in Amsterdam, Meesterknecht is closing down per 31-12. It’s been a though outcome of a 2,5 year journey, and it’s not what we had hoped for when Sammy Dirksz, Frank van der Sman and I sat down for coffee in 2014. It’s sad to see the shop being emptied, breaking down what we built up. At the same time, I have to admit it is a relieve of all the hard work, sleepless nights and unfulfilled ambitions we had. Most of you know Meesterknecht was not my fulltime job, but it was filling a gap of learning how to run a company/startup (my MBA), passion for branding/design and my love for riding a bike (De Rondehoep, here we come). I learned so much from doing this and met so many people that when all the dust has settled something beautiful must spring from it. ✌🏻
