We had a wonderful time visiting the Keukenhof (Tulip Gardens). The owner came in on Sunday to rent us the bikes, give us a map, and give us good directions. A great experience!! Rick

Fantastic bikes and great service. Enjoyed the trip through magical flower fields around Keukenhof. Made a 60 km trip and the bikes are very comfortable.
