Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What about the traffic safety in Delft?

Cycling, or any Delft activities or Delft attractions, in Holland and thereby in Delft is normally super safe, so no reason to panic. The Classic DBC tour only uses cyclinglanes and safe roads. Also it’s possible to borrow a super goodlooking helmet, if you like. Our experienced DBC guides are really relaxed and never rush/speed up: they will look after you. And off course you will bike Delft responsible and carefully! 

What do I wear, three-piece-suit or sports clothes?

Please do wear clothes you really feel comfortable in. The DBC Classic Tour isn’t a superfast sporttour, but hey flexible and comfortable clothing is always nice isn’t it? Do keep in mind that Dutch weather is quite mutable, sun and rain are good friends here. DBC offers rain poncho’s for just, but to be honest: you will look like a living plasticbag! That’s why it’s always a good idea to bring your own rain clothes.

Of course I know how to ride a bicycle, but I'm not super experienced?

In our Terms & Conditions you can read that we expect you to know how to ride a bike Delft and that you have to be able to adapt to citytraffic. No, you really do not have to be a stuntman or athlete, but you have to be able to join the group throughout the 3 hour tour. But let us tell you this: we also do not like rushing, so let’s keep it relaxed!

Am I allowed to take pictures and my beloved selfies?

Of course, a city like Delft deserves to be recorded in multiple ways. But make sure that you’ll only take a picture when we are standing still at a sight or during an information break. In summary, do not photograph while cycling! Trust us, we make sure you get off the bicycle with enough photos

What if it's real Dutch weather, raining cats and dogs?

Dutch weather can be quite mutable: one moment the sun is shining, a minute later it’s raining cats and dogs. Like real dutchmen a little bit of wind and rain does not scare us at all. That’s why the DBC Classic Tour will start even when there is some rain or wind. When there is storm ahead or when it’s just raining to much, we will have to cancel the tour. DBC will inform you about a possible cancellation as soon as possible. In case of a ‘weather based cancellation’ you won’t have to pay anything/we will make a 100 procent refund. 

Can I get a private tour or an exclusive tour for just me and my family?

Of course! Real cyclists are always in for something special. Want to go on a romantic tour together with your future lover? Want to get on a bicycle together with your office team, do some teambuilding? Please do contact us and together we will make a perfect tourplan!

How big are the tour groups, how many bicycle friends do I get?

We like to keep it on a personal level. That’s why the tourgroup will never be bigger than 15 people, let’s say cyclingfriends. Everybody can book The Classic Tour, when you are with a group or also when you are just on your own. At the end of the tour we all will be friends anyway. Please do keep in mind that our Delft activities or Delft attractions will only start with at least 4 persons/bookings.

In de eerste versnelling!

Goed nieuws: vanaf 1 juli stappen we bij DelftByCycle weer heerlijk op het zadel. Eindelijk weer cruisen langs de grachten, al fietsbellend door het park en genieten van de mooiste verhalen op de meest bijzondere plekjes. Zucht… je zou er bijna sentimenteel van worden.

Open vanaf 1 juli
Vanaf 1 juli kun je dus weer heerlijk mee op een fietstour, of haal je jouw eigen gehuurde fiets op bij ons kantoor in Delftse Molen de Roos. Om dat veilig en verantwoord te doen, hebben we wel enkele dingen aangepast:
– Je kunt nu enkel een tour aanvragen, we bekijken per aanvraag of we de tour veilig aan kunnen bieden en nemen dan contact met je op. Iedere aanvraag wordt dus per mail of telefoon door DelftByCycle wel of niet bevestigd.
– Het is helaas niet mogelijk om met grote groepen bij de lokale horeca te pauzeren. Hiervoor wordt een gepast alternatief aangeboden.
– Voor het huren van een fiets is het belangrijk om online te boeken. Zo kunnen we je fiets(en) veilig en op tijd klaar zetten. Natuurlijk staat ontsmettingsmiddel klaar.

We hopen je snel weer ons prachtige Delft te kunnen laten zien en van jouw vakantie in eigen land of stad, een weergaloze ervaring te maken!

Good news: from 1 July, we will be back on the saddle at DelftByCycle. Finally cruising along the canals again, while biking through the park and enjoying the most beautiful stories in the most special places. Sigh … it would make you almost sentimental.

Open from July 1
From July 1, you can enjoy a bike tour again, or pick up your own rented bike at the shop at Delftse Molen de Roos. To do that safely and responsibly, we have adjusted a few things:
– You can now only request a tour, we will examine per request whether we can safely offer the tour and then contact you. Every request is therefore confirmed or not by email or telephone by DelftByCycle.
– Unfortunately it is not possible to pause with large groups at local restaurants and bars. A suitable alternative is offered for this.
– When renting a bicycle it is important to book online. This way we can prepare your bike (s) safely and on time. Of course, disinfectant is ready.

We hope to be able to show you our beautiful Delft again and to make your holiday or citytrip an unforgettable experience!
