Bike Hire in Brighton and Hove: Amsterdammers, 360, LDBS

People ask where they can hire a bike in the Cycling City. There are several bike shops that hire out bicycles. My favourites are Amsterdammers, in town, and Bike 360, based up on the South Downs.

Ruto, the genuine article Dutch hire bike
Amsterdammers Cycle Hire offers decent second hand Dutch bikes, the genuine article from Dutch streets and painted light green.

Amsterdammers is situated right under Brighton mainline railway station, so its in a great spot if you arrive by rail. Sounds complicated, but its only 200 yeards or so. Exit the main station entrance past the ticket office, sharp right passing in front of the bike stands, past the M&S, left at the street, down the underpass along Trafalgar Street, (look out for the Model Railway Museum on your left, and the Albert Pub on your right, which bears the iconic Banksy graphitti of two snogging policemen on its wall), and there's a wineshop on the left as soon as you emerge from the underpass, left turn following the railway line which is now far above you. You're now walking through a carpark, and Unsignposted on your left under the last railway arch is Amsterdammers.
Got great new Dutch bikes, second hand ones and kid carriers.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 9:00 - 17:00
