Cycling in Groningen
Groningen is a cycling city (as you have seen on the welcome video). Cycling is cheap, quick and healthy and since there are few buses running on Easter Sunday and Monday, maybe it’s a good idea to rent a bicycle when you arrive by train or plain.
You can rent a bike from Stallingen: €5,00/day. Please find more information at https://www.stallingen.nl/fiets/fietsverhuur/
Unfortunattely the website is only in Dutch. If you want to rent bikes for the whole team and you want to be sure bikes are available (it is Easter), please make a reservation by filling in the form. Give name, amount of lady bikes (‘damesfiets’), pick up time (‘datum afhalen’) and time of return (‘datum terugbrengen’).
Typically Groningen: On many road crosses with traffic lights, all cyclists are allowed to cross at the same time. You can recognize these crosses at this sign:
