We are grandparents travelling with our 2 grandchildren ages 11 and 9. Our landlady where we were staying for 3 days told us of De Ketting Bike rentals. The friendly owner fit us with just the right bikes at a reasonable price. He gave us advice on where to cycle for 2-3 hours with children and where to get good... More

So glad we checked out Trip Advisor to find this place - not only the most affordable option we found, but the gentleman was super friendly and we were in and out very quickly both when we got the bikes and when we returned them. Appreciated the map to Damme (lovely bike along the canal and into the countryside!) and... More

This cycle place is fantastic. It is approximately 10 minutes outside of Brugge Centre (markt) on Gentpoortstraat 23 (just before Gentpoort). It opens at 10am and you need to return the bikes before 18.00. It is very cheap at €6 a day and the bikes are of good quality and well maintained. You should get a bike map from the... More

We rented bikes fro mere and rode to Sluiss in The Netherlands along the canals. A fantastic ride! De Ketting are out of town a little but by far the best value. 6 euros a day, with a couple of extra euros for helmet hire if you want it and bikes don't have to be back til 6pm. Very friendly...

Affordable bike rental - 6e for the day with the bike return at 6pm. Friendly staff as well! Was a great way to escape the overly touristy city center

My husband and I spent an enjoyable day cycling around Bruges a few weeks ago for the very reasonable price of 6 euros each. It was a really nice change from having to walk everywhere and we have been inspired now to buy our own bikes in the UK! The shop is just outside the main centre and really near... More

We arrived via train and found outselves to De Ketting. Take note of the directions. It's located as described on this site and their site, but it's not in the "normal" touristy spot. Great prices..6 euro for the day per person. The bikes are fine quality. Make sure the heighth of the seat is set properly. They're open until 6:00... More

The owner is really helpful and friendly. You don't have to deal with any documents and the price was really reasonable. Don't look for another place to rent a bike in Brugge.
