  • “Best way to get to know the city”

    We rented 2 bikes, one single and one cargo bike where I took my 2 kids. (8 and 6)
    All bikes have gears so it is not tiring and you can ride for hours,
    I recommend this. We rented our bike in the red light district area. The manager was very nice. If you are renting a cargo bike, I recommend booking it in advance.

  • “Highly Recommended”

    Amsterdam is a city that you can see every part easily with a simple bike. They are here for this. Prices are cool and the bikes are well usable. You sign up online easily with a computer make your payment take your bike and go. If you are staying at the center, i highly recommend renting a bike. Car parking is very very expensive and they have strict rules.
