Bike Rentals from Train Stations Return to Same?

Can someone please tell me if you rent a bicycle from one train station in the netherlands, do you have to drop it off to the same train station or can you drop it off at a different station further along in your travels IF you aren't doing a circle route?

Thank You!

Only "OV Fiets" bikes can be taken back to another station for an extra fee but:

- I think you need to have an NS membership to be able to rent OV fiets.

- these are simple no-gear bikes, not very comfortable for long rides.

But you may find more info here and perhaps I'm wrong: http://www.bikesharing.eu/dutch-solution

Or here (use Google Translate): ov-fiets.nl/ovfiets/…ov-fiets-in-het-kort

In your case an organized bike tour could be the most convenient solution, for example Bike & Barge or Tulip Cycling or Cycletours. They tend to come with bikes, panniers etc. I believe the Bike & Barge tours even transport your luggage for you.
