Fixed Gear Coffee opened its doors in August 2018. The philosophy of Fixed Gear Coffee is to bring the best of cycling and coffee together at the bottom of the Cauberg. It was the mission of the founders Brian Megens and Shivani Achrekar to create an all inclusive place wherein everybody, from non-cyclist to World Tour pro, feels welcome. Fixed Gear Coffee is a place where people come in, with or without their bike, to enjoy a cup of coffee with some homemade cake, to admire our bike collection, photography work, fix their bike, or to check out our latest arrivals of cycling apparel. For more info about our single origin specialty coffee, our homemade cakes, the brands that we have in store, or our rides & events check out the website but even better, drop by our place. We hope to welcome you very soon!
Coffee before Cycling is a way for us to express how we feel, see and experience the upcoming coffee & cycling culture. The foundation of Coffee before Cycling is being inclusive: everybody is welcome regardless of their level of bike riding, religion, ethnicity, or sexuality. Everyone finds their own balance between riding hard and making time for a coffee stop. Although the level difference in bike riding might be huge, we all can share a good cup of coffee together and our love for the bike. With Coffee before Cycling we host rides, events, and do collaborations with creatives and like minded brands. No matter what, always Coffee before Cycling!
When you come over for a coffee or cake, or to pick up some Coffee before Cycling or other cool swag, you’ll find some pretty special bikes, shirts and photos hanging on the walls. We’ve collected rare bikes from Paris-Roubaix winner John Degenkolb and World Champions Anna van de Breggen and Theo Bos as well as bikes from legendary teams Rabobank (1997-2012) and Cofidis (2001). Included in our vintage bike collection are RIH super course, Zieleman type special ’77, and Kirk Precision. Not to mention several Colnago Master Olympic Editions, We have something for every bike fanatic.
While you’re checking out the bikes, you’ll find some beautiful black and white photos from the Six Day Rotterdam 2018. These photos taken by Brian Megens were exhibited on the Rotterdam International Sports Film Festival 2018. The project was also nominated for the Zilveren Camera 2018 making the top 5 in the Sport Series category.
