The city of Ghent is most easily explored by bike, which is also how locals prefer to move around. There are plenty of bike rental companies and accommodations renting bikes in the city and you can rent any type of bike, ranging from cargo bikes and tandems to longtail bikes, at Fietsambassade. Are you not yet familiar with longtail bikes? Take a look around in Ghent, as the city is full of them! 

Extra tip: If you have bought a CityCard Gent, then the rental of a city bike from Fietsambassade for one day is included.
