The Bike Depot is closed from the 18th of December, 2023 until the 1st of January, 2024.
Bicycles are more than welcome in Almere. As long as they are parked properly. They cannot create dangerous situations. That is why we have a number of rules for the parking of bicycles and mopeds. We remove:
We carry out enforcement in the city centre of Almere Stad and Almere Buiten (the swimming pool - Baltimoreplein area). As well as in all station zones.
We take removed bicycles to the Bike Depot. The bicycles are stored there for 13 weeks. You can pick up your bicycle upon payment of € 25.00 and presentation of your identity document and the key of the bicycle. You can only pay by card at the Bike Depot. Pick-up is possible without appointment.
Bicycle wrecks are bicycles that can no longer be cycled on, that lack essential components, or of which it is clear that they have not been ridden for a long time. Bicycle wrecks are not taken to the Bike Depot, but are disposed of as waste.
Did you lose your bicycle? Then you can check on the website verlorenofgevonden.nl (Dutch only) as to whether it has ended up at the Esplanade Bike Depot. When we place a bicycle at the depot, we scan the bicycle and take a photo. When your bicycle is on this website then the address where the bicycle can be picked up is shown.
Did you not find your bicycle at the Esplanade Bike Depot? Then the chance is considerable that it was stolen. Then always file a report! The Esplanade Bike Depot works together with the police on the prevention of bicycle theft.
You can file a digital report. Go to politie.nl/aangifte (Dutch only).
