Piet de Wit (born 6 March 1946) is a retired cyclist from the Netherlands who won the Amateur UCI Motor-paced World Championships in 1966 and 1967. He then moved into the professionals category and won another three medals in 1968, 1970 and 1973.[1]

He was raised with three sisters in a biking family – his parents worked for a bicycle company. After retiring from active competitions in 1974, he established a family-run bicycle shop in his native Wormer, which later expanded into a chain in North Holland. In 1994 he passed the shop management to his business partner Martin Slagt.[2]
