Wear whatever is comfortable. It is recommended to have a sturdy pair of broken-in trail shoes, boots, or sneakers. It is preferable to dress in layers and wear clothing that will wick away perspiration and keep you dry and comfortable

The meeting-point is our shop located outside Almere Centrum Station. In the square just outside the Station is a square with a bench about 50 meters from the station entrance. The tour guide will be wearing Almere Tours shirt and/or hat.
We recommend the Almere City bike tour to anyone who is not used to city traffic or nervous about biking. Almere has separate bike paths that rarely cross traffic so it is the ideal place to ride a bike in the Netherlands. However please bear in mind that you must be able to ride bike on your own.
We expect you to be able to check over your shoulder before turning while riding in a straight line and turning corners. We also expect you to be able to ride in a straight line with one hand, while signalling with the other. Be clear in traffic and make sure traffic is clear to you.
No, children under 16 may not operate a Spartamet. They may sit on the back of a tandem or in the box of a box bike (Bakfiets). A Bakfiets is a bike with a large box for cargo or children in front. Our Bakfiets also have the small motor on them so it is easily to drive up to 4 small children on the bike.
Yes, on special request we have helmets available for those who would like to use one. We have lots of children’s helmet and a few helmets for adults. Helmets are not mandatory in Amsterdam and the Netherlands and most people don’t use them, but we understand if you like to use one.
Most tours last between 2-4 hours. Each tour lists the tour duration and an itinerary on the tour description page.
Please note that in case you are planning other activities for after the bike tours, count on the tours possibly lasting + 30 minutes extra.
