This is a great place to rent a bike while in Bruges. Near the center of town, around all the attractions, and with a friendly vibe, we had an easy time renting a tandem bike here. Having a bike is great way to see this entire city. We easily rode all around (the city is flat), including out to the... More

Visited Brugge again and spent a half day cycling the canal paths. Bike hire was again easy, great quality Oxford bikes! Simple and effective setup and service. Our 2nd time this year and no complaints!

We rented bikes here, and we we returned them they checked them in and smiled and sent us on our way. The following day someone in the shop saw us on the road by the shop and shouted at us and insisted we come into the shop. He said we had damaged one of the bikes very badly and must... More

We hired bikes from Eric for three days while staying in Brugge. The bikes were in excellent condition, comfortable and easy to ride. Eric provided maps and good advice on where to ride - a day trip along the Damme Canal was a highlight! We stopped for a picnic lunch next to a windmill, having bought ingredients for our picnic...

We went late on Easter Sunday (approx. 1pm) and wondered if there would be any bikes left as the town was so busy. Unfortunately the tandems were all gone, but there were plenty of normal bikes, including a child's bike for my youngest (10). The bikes are really well maintained, and after a brief lesson in how to use the... More

We hired bikes on two occasions and found the experience to be painless and efficient. First time we hired their regular bikes (top quality machines made in Belgium) and second time we went electric! Couldn't have been more helpful.

The bike are well looked after and are good value to rent. A great way to explore Brugge with many cycle ways and your own traffic lights!!! Tip- If you want an electrical assisted bike reserve it in advance as they have limited numbers

My wife and I hired bikes from Eric on a short stay in Bruges. I thought the price was extremely reasonable for 4 hours (. I cycle a lot and am very used to all things bike related. The bikes were very comfortable for a few hours cycling and had no problems with them at all. Cycling on the pavés... More

Don't believe the bad reviews. My husband and I ended up at this bike rental as he was the only one open and was recommend by the main tourist information centre. I had my misgivings because I'd read the negative reviews. I was pleasantly surprised at how quick and easy it was. You fill out a form, leave your rental... More

the bikes we rented were pretty good. The bike for my wife was too big for her. During the journey the saddle got ripped. It looked like it got worn somehow. We had to pay for a replacement saddle. Not good and not expected. There is no option to buy insurance so we assumed we are covered. Fortunately we didn't... More
