Bike rental with children

Looking for a place that hires the tandem bike for a child to go on the back - my son is 8 but think he won't be confident on the busy roads . Any recommendations ? Like the sound of the country rides or the ferry to the countryside - I need help please !!! We are staying at the ramada appollo , may be there is a place near by ?

You may find that the hotel rents bikes but I would highly doubt they have a tandem available. I would try the following company. http://www.rentabike.nl/

MacBike has many different types of bikes including tandems, but I think the kid goes on the front, but the adult on the back does the steering. Reviews about that company here. tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g188590-d1…

BikeCity has great service but I don't know if they have tandems.

More about bike riding & rental here: iamsterdam.com/en-GB/…cycling

Great website about doing your own countryside rides from Amsterdam: www.gobyx.nl

But you may want to just book a guided bike tour for example through MacBike.

The city can be really hectic and chaotic for newbie bike riders so take it slowly and please do not imitate the Amsterdammers who ignore red lights. And watch out for those tram tracks... always cross them at enough of an angle so that your wheel doesn't get stuck. I've had guests with bloody wounds from falling.... (they didn't tell me they were going to rent bikes or I would have warned them).

Have fun!
