Equipment for your bike tour

With years of experience we are very picky on the quality of our equipment. The gear we offer is modern, of high quality and top brands and is fully adapted to European cycling conditions. A bicycle is included with all our recreational tours and e-bike tours. For road bike tours you can rent one or you can bring your own bike. GPS navigation is included with all tours.
Despite the high quality and excellent servicing of our bikes, equipment failure can occur. For minor defects you can use the toolkit provided or visit one of the many local bicycle repair shops. In case of a major breakdown that prevents you from continuing your tour we send out our included mobile repair service.

Touring bike

These are bicycles with straight handlebars and an upright riding position. Our touring bikes are the best you will find in Holland. The bikes are lighter of weight than other recreational bikes, but without having to compromise on comfort and durability.

The E-bike is a recreational bike that has a small electric motor which is powered by an onboard battery. The correct name is Pedelec - the abbreviation for "Pedal Electric Cycle". The electric assistance only complements, and therefore does not replace the necessary human pedaling power. If you prefer a little extra support, the E-bike is a good alternative for the standard recreational bike.

››    An E-bike weighs more than a normal recreational bike and the riding characteristics are also different. Therefore we advise you to practise riding an E-bike before your tour starts.

››    Prefer a hybrid style road bike with straight handle bars? These are available as well at the same price.
››    Want to go for a super lightweight road bike? We also offer a full carbon frame upgrade with Shimano Ultegra gearing.

Bags | Panniers

For most recreational tours you have the option to transport your luggage in panniers on your bike.
Your bicycle will be equipped with one pair of waterproof rear panniers (bags) with a content of approximately 20 liters / 44 lbs each.
››    If you choose to have your luggage transferred we include one pannier per bike, to store your daily items.

Our lightweight road bikes are not equipped with racks and cannot take panniers. Therefore luggage transfers are included in road bike tours and we provide you with a cyclist's backpack, to store your daily bits and pieces. This backpack includes special vertical ventilation to minimize sweating on your back.


For everyday recreational cycling, helmets are rarely worn in the Netherlands. For more information visit our Safe Cycling page.


For every tour we provide you with:
• Water bottle
• Cable lock
• Minipump
• Small tool set (allen wrench etc.)
