Bike rental 'De Boshalte'

Fietsverhuur sfeerfoto

The Amsterdamse Bos is a paradise for cyclists, with stunning routes along several very different nature areas. A special cycle tour of 14 km has been marked through the Bos to show you all the beauty of this forest in one trip.

Bike rental 'De Boshalte'

Bike rental 'De Boshalte' is situated opposite De Boswinkel. They rent all kinds of bikes, like city bikes, tandems and even so-called 'elliptigo’s'. An elliptigo is a sort of mix between a bike and a cross trainer.

The marked cycle tour of 14 km takes you through beautiful natural areas and along the most entertaining attractions. Ride to the breath-taking Bloesempark (Flower blossom Park) and tranquil Vogeleiland (Bird Island) and see if you can spot the Scottish Highlanders along the way. The route starts and ends at De Boswinkel.

Here you can also buy a map of the tour. Bring a picnic basket and enjoy a lovely picknick along the way!

Terrace 'De Boshalte'

'De Boshalte' is the name of the Bike rental in the Amsterdamse Bos. Catch your breath on the terrace with a warm cup of Earth coffee, or their famous 'bosti' (toasted sandwich) after your bike ride. You can also host a small party here, or play a game of chess.
