The 5 best bike shops in Brussels

1) Velodroom

A friendly bike shop near Place Saint-Géry with young Flemish staff who know their stuff and can explain it in six languages. The shop specialises in solid Belgian urban bikes made by firms like Achielle, which are ideal machines for the daily commute. They also sell Brompton folding bicycles, which are popular with train commuters, though tough to ride up the city’s steep hills, as well as cute wooden bikes for kids.


2) Velofixer

Amor Mistiaen is a friendly bike repair man who will ride across town to fix your broken bike for a modest fee. He also sells cool German bikes and accessories in a tiny shop in the centre of Brussels.
