Rent a Dutch bike or scooters

 We are pleased to let you ride our authentic Dutch bikes, so full of charm and history. You can come and rent bikes or tandems for one to a few days or for a photoshoot. You can also rent our bikes for special occasions like a chic bike ride, a romantic stroll, wedding processions, family reunions, stag and hen parties,...

The price is 15 € per person for half a day and € 20 for the whole day

Deposit required for some bicycles

When you hire a bike, you become a member of the association Le Grand Huit. This annual fee of € 5 is already included in the rates mentioned. Thus you will help us repair and renovate our genuine and beautiful bikes

Each of our bikes is unique. You can find more about them (photo and name) by clicking on this link "Dutch bikes". Funny bikes are also available to rent (but not all are easily rideable) that you will find on the page "Funny bikes"

Le Grand Huit is happy to make its bicycles available at all times to certain tourism partners who have a particular interest in developing the use of bicycles as a means of transport from their structure

"Living well with Bonduelle" ...The scooter is everywhere. A great success for a broad range of amateurs from 3 to 83 years. But would you guess this announcement of Bonduelle CEO this 09 january to his staff members for the new year : Scooters will now be available to move within the company and replace cars. With coaching and advise of le Grand Huit, and even ...the "scooter permit" they have to pass !  

Gla-gla Race : paddlers from Le Grand Huit are going to take part in France's coolest race, a legendary event. It will take place on the 20th of January on Lake Annecy and is a good reason to keep on practising in winter, on Sundays in Joinville and on Saturdays in Lille. Who said "cold" ??

The new Youth Hostel in Lille is an amazing and welcoming place. It’s also a cradle of creativity for the social and solidarity economy. It is situated 2km away from the town center which isn’t a problem since the Grand Huit offer bikes to the guests for a one-day use or longer. That’s also the zero-emission politics of the tourist accommodation.
