What's the best bike option for 6 months stay

Hi

I will be in Haarlem for 6 months. And would like to either rent or buy a bike for the 6 months I am there. Please recommend best option with rough prices and cheapest / best place to get it from.

Does any one know where I can either rent a bike from for the 6 months and if so roughly how much it would cost me?

or if its best for me to buy a bike esp as will be there for 6 months. If so how much are bikes to buy, either for a new or second hand bike, not bothered just want something that'll last me the 6 months

There are lots of bike shops. Shop around, you should be able to buy a descent used bike for 80-100 euro. Probably less in Haarlem.

You can buy second hand bikes at haarlem train station. Sometimes stores like HEMA have new bikes on sale for around 200 - 300 euro.

Decathlon and Halfords also sell cheap bikes.

Buy a used one for 100 euros

Sell it for 60-75 or so

Now that is an awesome idea, that way it would only cost me €30-€50 euros for the whole 6 months use.

I like your thinking :-)
