About Bizon Bike Company
Experience Leiden through the eyes of a local. Together with locals and insiders, we made the most beautiful routes. Different, authentic, original, unique, simple pleasure... During our Bike Tours we obviously don't cycle on ordinary bikes, but bicycles with an authentic and original character. Nice tours for cityhoppers and tourists. And..... our bikes are also for rent!

Walked across town to reach Bizon Bikes only to find no one home. Tried to connect via text message, but still no response. Surely one would expect a shop manager to hold the fort while others are out biking, but alas. Poor service. In fact, absolutely NO service. (Wish we could choose a zero rating)

Hello AndreCoetzee3, Thanks for your rating. Sorry to hear that you've walked across town to reach us. I was wondering when you tried to visit us, because normally we're open almost every day. You could have called us (instead of text message); one of us will helped you further to get a bike. Sorry to hear that your perception is negative about our Company....

This bike rental shop is located on a historical spot in Leiden & the rental bikes are quite special, as if they were made for this place. You can also try out one of these wooden bikes. I was in contact with the owner a couple of times and he's really relaxed. Just makes sure that everything is well organised. Even when you're enroute and have a problem, you can just give him a call and he'll provide great assistance. He'll give suggestions for a route & you can also do tours in & around Leiden

We wanted to rent bikes whilst in Leiden and judging by the reviews we walked to this place. The website said that it was open but when we arrived it appeared that the whole complex of which it is a part was about to be re-developed as a residential area and the bike hire place was closed and apparently deserted. We were frustrated, to say the least.

Dear Chris, Thanks for your reaction. Sorry to hear that you thought that we were closed. But we are still open! I'm not sure when you were in Leiden, but we were probably on a biketour through Leiden with some clients. Therefore there is a sign at the main entrance with our (mobile) number, so guests can contact us (and normally we are in a few minutes at our Company). Sorry to hear that you were frustrated... If you are still in Leiden at this moment, please contact us! Best regards, Marcel Benedictus BizonBikeCompany

I've cycled in many cities and can honestly say Bizon Bikes is one of the best bike rental shops I've ever encountered. Wonderful, friendly, and informative staff who helped get my bike fit properly, got me oriented with a map, and helped plot out a route for my ride. Perhaps more importantly, they provided me with directions to a really great coffee house :) I wasn't in Leiden long enough to participate in their tours, but if you have the time and a larger group (I was traveling solo) I highly recommend you look into booking one of their cleverly-themed trips. Especially since you'll have the memorable experience of cycling on one of their wooden bikes!

We had a wonderful time visiting the Keukenhof (Tulip Gardens). The owner came in on Sunday to rent us the bikes, give us a map, and give us good directions. A great experience!! Rick
