This is a bike tour like no other! We’ll meet you at a bike rental shop downtown. Here, we spend some time taking you through the basic rules of cycling in Amsterdam. Once you’ve mastered the basics, we put you to the test by taking a ride to a market neighbourhood where you’ll get to explore the area off the beaten track, and put into practice everything you have learned. The market neighbourhood to choose from, and our destination depends on the weather and the ability and preference of the group. Heading South, we take a journey that leads us to the Albert Cuypmarkt market area with cultural heritage to see and goodies to taste. Along the way, we chat about the unique two-wheeled history of Amsterdam and you hear famous bicycle-related tales, and understand more about our famous passion. In the Market we stop for twenty minutes and show you a few street food favorites. Perhaps you teat yourself to a hot Stoop cookie, or buy some gouda cheese. After two hours of cycling, we’re certain you’ll be confident enough to continue your exploration without us! You are welcome to keep the bike for the rest of the day or you can also choose to end your biking experience after tour, it’s totally up to you
Hi, my name is Sean, I’m originally from the U.S, but I’ve been living in this intriguing city for over 13 years. Together with Tyler (a fellow expat with dutch relations), and two local boys Kees and Bas, we joined the travelers' network, Urban Adventures, so that we can share our love for Amsterdam even easier. We want to share our local insider knowledge, gained through years of experience, with you as our preferred guest. And what better subject to share this local knowledge about than the local favorite mode of transport: the bicycle! We offer a personal, practical, and fun bicycle tour Amsterdam, with a very relaxed feel. Like having a friend teaching you the inner workings of cycling in Amsterdam.
included is a three-speed hand break bike for the tour. English speaking guide, a rain poncho if needed.
At the Market you will have time to walk around and try whatever you fancy from fish to nuts the market has a variety of local flavors. Perhaps you want to decorate your bike in flowers for your trip through the Park. On a nice day the main parks in Amsterdam offer a great place to bike. Whatever the weather we will show you the Historic downtown on our way to and back from our stop at the market. The experience is a taste of local life.
