“"Amazing experience!"”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

My wife and I cycled to Haarlem, Zantvoort and back to IJmuiden through Zuid-Kennemerland National Park.
These bikes are excellent! We could enjoy the long distance cycling with various kinds of routes in the city side and rural side.

・Good point
-Possible to cycle 50km without getting tired although we get almost no exercise usually.
-The battery capacity is enough for 50km cycling. (the remaining was about 1/5 using 3-assist mode equally.)
-Saddle bag is very useful for carrying some drink, snacks, camera or the extra battery if you want. (although the number of bikes with bag are limited. )
-Zuid-Kennemerland National Park is the best to enjoy the great landscape with many animals like rabbits, horses and big cows.
-Well-equipped bicycle roads

・Bad point
-For us (160cm tall), difficult to touch the ground with both legs even for the smallest one.
-Sometimes difficult to find the correct routes
(we should prepare the bicycle map at tourist info and search the route number in advance.)

“Great Fun”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

This is a nice way to explore the Zuid-Kennemerland park by bike. The owner, Ron, was very helpful in getting the bikes to our hotel and giving us an overview of the e-bikes. Perfect for a leisurely ride.

“Awesome bikes and service!”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

We had two nights in Ijmuiden on our trip and had the spontaneous idea to rent some bikes to discover the national park. So we checked the internet and found Dutch Pedelec Tours. After a short phonecall, Ron (owner of the place) even brought the bikes to the hotel where we were staying and picked them up the next day whithout any fee.
The bikes were great. It was the first time for us on an electric bike and it was awesome. It is great fun to drive them around and you can enjoy the nature. Ron gave us different maps of tours in the region. I recommend driving through the Zuid-Kennemerland national park. Alltogether we had a great day. 5/5

“Bikes for speed freaks and comfort lovers!”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

These bikes are brilliant. Simply brilliant. And so is the service and help in finding routes to take. On top of that you get all the accoutrements - very good saddle bags, high viz, poncho and a helmet too (we didn't take the helmet!)

Whether you like to go really fast, or just like to enjoy the countryside, you'll like these! They work beautifully. The electric packs are like little magical boosts of power when you are tired, or you are wanting to overtake someone on a hill, or there is a headwind, or you just want to go really really fast!! The rest of the bikes is pretty good too. There are more than 3 gears (3 is the norm for dutch bikes - their riders all have massive thighs!), which all changed smoothly and when you want them too. They have handlebar brakes instead of pedal brakes, another plus if you are not used to the backpedal stop that a lot of Dutch bikes have.

I was hesitant at first, the price being double what it is for hiring a regular bike. My boyfriend and I are both fairly fit and gluttons for the physical punishment of long distance cycling/ runnning. Did we really need that electric pack? YES! Those bikes were the best part of our little Dutch adventure!

Get your own map though. The ones provided are limited to the IJmuiden area.
