The people behind Fietsverhuuralmelo.nl? It's the Harings family! Together they run the oldest bicycle store in Holland, founded in 1899. Back in the days we already were active with offering bicycles for rental in Amsterdam and back in 2020 we picked up the business. Feel welcome, we're here to help!
Harings senior has lived here since 1972 when he moved from Amsterdam and junior is born and raised here.. We know Almelo and his surroundings like the back of our hands. We enjoy giving advice and telling stories about the area and we'll try to make your ride as joyfull as possible!
Our company is founded in Amsterdam in the year 1899. In Amsterdam we rented (cargo) bikes for many years to tourists but also local companies. When the location in Almelo was opened we did not bring these activities with us because there were already enough places to rent bicycles back in the day. This changes in 2020 when we noticed that there were groups off tourists looking for a place to rent bicycles. We started with two products but soon noticed that these were not enough to satisfy the demand. Currently we're doubling our floot every season!
Our store and rental location can be found at Nieuwstraat 95-99 in Almelo. If you're looking for more information about our store, please visit the international website and webshop on www.haringstweewielers.com.
