Cycling, yes it is a thing to do in the netherlands. We have no mountains, so even the person that hates cycling because of this , can do this here.
It is a great way to see the city, but the surroundigs too.
Equipment: You can take your own bike, but you can rent them for not much money, the hotel will tell you where, or in the trainstaion they can tell you too, there is a shop under the station who rents them, and you can buy cheap maps in the VVV.
...and you fancy some FC Utrecht souvenirs then there are a couple of Fanshops around the city and of course one out at the stadium. Probably the easiest one to find is that at the Hoog Katherine Mall as it is pretty much the first thing in front of you as you go in the main entrance.
Website has details of opening times etc and also a link to the online shop.
