I have a few questions about transportation in Europe, does anyone know anything about them:
-I need to go Breda, Netherlands to Antwerpn, Beligum. Do have a bus/tram? Or are there cheap train tickets to them?
-Rail Passes, if I'm taking train to Breda-Antwerpn-Brussels-Paris-Le Harve-London. Can I get a rail pass to cover all those cities?
-And roughly, how much does renting a bike per day cost in Holland, like keeping it overnight too. I need some for about 4 days, anyone know how much it would cost?
Thanks
Willie

You should be looking for train tickets to get from Breda to Antwerp. It's a trainride of just over an hour (1.10), according to the website of the NS (dutch railways), this trip costs you 4,40 for a second class ticket.

I think that you can get a railpass to cover those cities, BUT ... I think that these are too close to eachother, to be worth buying a pass for. I think it will be much cheaper to get p2p-tickets. For the eurostar you need to make a reservation, and also show up on time for check-in. Check the site of Eurostar for details: http://www.eurostar.com/UK/uk/leisure/travel_information.jsp

I just looked at one site for renting bikes in Amsterdam, and they charge 7,50 euro a day. (with a 100 euro deposit). If you like to rent a bike for more then one day, you need to pay upfront. (for a week it is 37.50) - http://www.amstelfietspoint.nl/indexeng.htm

Don't bother with a railpass. Just as Herr Bert stated, those cities are relatively close to each other. I don't see why it'd cost much to travel in between them. Another alternative to using the Eurostar is to take a budget flight from Amsterdam to London. However, I consider taking the Channel Tunnel as an experience in itself ;)
