  • Best Bike rental place in Haarlem

    by SandraJaxisson Written Sep 21, 2011

    Of you're looking for a good place to rent a bike in Haarlem than go to Toyzon/Breeks. An incredible
    fun store right in the centre of THE
    city with 1minute distance of the big square (Grote Markt). They rent Beachcruisers and you can even rent à picknick-basket. We had so much fun and even visit the beach by bike.

    So when you visit Haarlem, rent à bike and explore. Their address is Koningsstraat 15, Haarlem.
    Hopefully you can use this tip.

    Discover Haarlem by bike

    A part of the road belongs exclusively to bikers

    Like everywhere in Holland, lots of local Haarlem-people transport themselves by bike.

    It's a very safe and easy way of transportation, since we even have a special road and sometimes traffic lights exclusively for bikes. If you don't see the special road, just remember to stay at the right site of the road.

    If you rent a bike it's possible to ask for a helmet, but this is not obliged.

    Where to go by bike:
    -Discover the towncenter and all it's small streets and nice old houses
    -The trainstation is very easy to reach
    -Go to the beach -Bloemendaal or Zandvoort -and dunes (everyone can show you the way)
    -Go to Elswout. This is a beautifull forest
    -Go to recreation parc "Spaarnwoude" and see windmills, farms and cows... Also pay a visit to Spaarndam village
    -Everything in and around Haarlem can easily be reached by bike

    Bikes can be rented at the trainstation. The name of the place is "Pieters fietsenstalling station".

    St Bavo by pass

    One of my favorite activities was watching the PM bicycle rush hour. A couple Pubs on a corner of St Bavo provides a great seat to watch the human parade.

    morning rush hour

    I quickly learned bicycles have the right of way in the Netherlands. I found the people to be in good shape compared to us Americans. Healthy habits help I'm sure.
