Hired two bikes for 4 hours. We were staying near main square so location of the shop to hire bikes was convenient. Bikes were really good. Man in shop helped us with suggestions of where we could ride. Rode around outside of Bruges past the windmills and then decided to continue to the town of Damme. Was lovely and easy... More

We hired bikes from here during our trip in Bruges. The young man in the shop was helpful and friendly. He suggested a few routes for us and good places to visit. The bikes were in good working order and comfortable. The hire was also excellent value for money.

We rented two bikes for a few hours, for a small price. Think he charged us less too. Soon enough we were away riding around the city. It really is the best way to see the sights! I wouldn't say it was the most comfortable bike, and on the cobbled roads was a bit bumpy. But it did the job... More

We had hired an apartment, but needed an extra bike. This was quite close, so we popped in looking for a girls bike. Within minutes we were all set, €12 for the day, shown how to use the in built lock, had the saddle adjusted correctly, a map and clear directions, and we were in our way. Very helpful, very...

Easy to ride, reasonably priced. Boyfriend was reluctant but one we'd cycled down the river to the windmills he was converted, now we're renting bikes in other cities because it was so lovely.

No fuss and very easy to hire a tandem and sent off with best route for 1/2 day. Only €17 for 4 hours and we cycled around Bruges and to Damme and back. A lovely way to see the sights, go further afield and do some exercise. Plenty of stock and well maintained.

We had wanted to hire bikes in Paris, but were warned off using the Velob bikes because of credit card implications. What a delight to hire bikes at this awesome place in Bruges so easily. We were welcomed into the shop, and had to give some identification before we hired a bike. For 8 Euro each, we had a bike... More

We rented bikes for a day and hadn't really planned whet we wee going to do. However this turned out to be an amazing day. After cycling around the streets we followed the canal out of the town towards Damme- the cycle path is wide and runs alongside the canal the whole way,, we stopped in Damme for a drink... More
