We are Black Bikes Amsterdam This is the address for good looking rental bikes in Amsterdam with classic look and feel. Just like the locals ride. We offer handbuilt Dutch quality for a fair price. Riding a bicycle in Amsterdam has become an experience on your bucketlist, just like the city itself. More and more people around the world start coming back to the great sustainable invention of the bicycle. There is a lot of choice. We offer: bikes for children, tandem bikes and cargo bicycles. Amsterdam is beautiful. Canals with trees alongside, green parks and classical buildings; we’ve got it all……go see it on a Black Bikes bicycle. In summer or wintertime Amsterdammers are on their bicycle. It’s a way of living.

Biking is the best way to get around the city. It was really easy to rent and return the bikes. The staff was helpful. Basic bikes, nothing fancy. I would definitely rent from them again.

Rented bikes as a change from walking and couldn’t recommend Black-Bikes enough. Easy process, good price and we even got to keep the bikes longer with no added hassle.

Good place for bike rental. The staff was very friendly and gave a lot of information and instructions to ride across the city. The bikes were really good. I recommend this place.
