About ‘t Verzet
Bicycle shop ‘t Verzet was founded in 2014 by Wannes Coolen and René Verberne, based on their love for cycling. There is no better place than the Edisonstraat in Woensel-West, full of history and in full swing.
In April 2018 Wannes chooses a new path and leaves the business. Dwight Fabre gets the chance to take over from Wannes, this is an opportunity he can’t pass up.
In May 2020, René will also leave Rijwielhuis ‘t Verzet to start a new adventure.
Today, the Verzet team consists of the entrepreneurial couple Dwight Fabre (owner and chief mechanic) and Kim van Bree (co-owner).
It is sometimes difficult to estimate in advance what exactly needs to be done.
Our advice is therefore: “Bring your bike to the store. Then we look together, while enjoying a cup of coffee, what needs to be done!” This is how we go for ‘customized quality!
The Denim Run, originally set up by Wing and Emiel, started as an annual moment for cycling and denim enthusiasts to get to know each other, visit each other and share experiences with each other.
The Denim Run is the opportunity for enthusiasts to meet each other, exchange (cycling) information and discover new/cool locations! It also offers an opportunity to companies and local entrepreneurs to get acquainted with the area and its inhabitants!
“A way of life”
Originally, the name “Lichtrijder” originated from the idea of naming bicycles that were given a second life. It is now becoming a household name.
‘The Lichtrijder’ van ‘t Verzet is ‘riding the light’ on ‘his/her lichtrijder’!
- The Lichtrijder: a member of the ‘T Verzet’ community, often recognizable by the clothing,
- riding the light: cruising on a (often personalized) lichtrijder,
- his/her lichtrijder: custom modified two wheeler.
