If you have home, credit card, or travel insurance that may pay for the stolen bicycle, you will need to request a police report at the local police station. (There is a station on the boardwalk at water taxi dock) The rental documents explain your responsibility in more detail.

How do I get around?

Dutchies will provide you with some itinerary suggestions designed for all tastes.  You can create your own route in advance or wing it as you go.  There are streets in and around the Phillipsburg area which are easy to drive on and even the boardwalk. We don't recommend using sidewalks, as they are designed for pedestrians, but if no one is walking on them and you feel more comfortable, go ahead. Like anywhere, you must respect the rules of the road.
