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.
