1. Re: Hiring bikes

As for the 'best' place, compare reviews about MacBike, Mike's Bikes, Bikecity, Yellow Bike and others. More here: iamsterdam.com/en-GB/…cycling

Usually it's somewhere around €10 a day.

Note that most will be pedal brake bikes. If you want hand brakes, rent a special type of bike.

As a tourist, renting a bike in Amsterdam is wonderful. Pay good attention to traffic, pedestrians and other cyclists. If you have a near miss a heartfelt "Sorry" is the appropriate response. Don't forget to roll your "r".

In addition to post 8, check if your health Insurance covers expenses made in the Netherlands.
