Why should you rent a bike in Amsterdam?

Rent a bike to feel free and independent

The best way to see the city is to rent a bike. We like to say: ‘See Better By Bike’, because that is what we believe! You can go wherever you like, stop wherever you want, and take a stroll on the bike to see more than just the highlights

Cycling is timeless

You can hop on the bike whenever it suits you! Go to the museum in the city center, make a tour through the park in the South side of the city, and visit that special restaurant in the North of Amsterdam. Or wait…. Let’s do it the other way around… No problem: your rental bike will take you everywhere, on the time that is convenient for you!

Cycling is sustainable

If you rent a bike you choose for a sustainable way of transport. It doesn’t take any fuel other than your own energy to cycle from one hotspot to another, or to make a tour through the countryside. Moreover, by biking you don’t contribute to any pollution like CO2-emissions. On top of that cycling is cheap, fast, healthy and relaxed. So, what are you waiting for?
Come to our shop and get your bike!
