About us

team tulip cycling 2017 about us

Peter Vos – owner

My passion for maps  started as a young child;  I was reading them as others read books. Dreaming of landscapes and travelling by. As a boy of 14 I bought my first road bike and from that moment on I started to explore cycling the Netherlands . Planning the most scenic routes and of course biked them with my friends. The passion for mapping didn’t stop, so that’s why I decided to obtain a professional degree as land surveyor. After I met Liesbeth, who shared my passion for travelling, outdoor sports and biking, we made great trips in Europe and some abroad by foot, kayak, cross country skis and of course by bike.  After 20 years experience as land surveyor exploring all parts of the Netherlands and far abroad I was ready for a new challenge in life. In 2010 Tulip Cycling seemed to be the perfect choice! Making the most scenic routes for our guests in a country I explored myself all my life using my beloved bike!

Liesbeth van Vulpen – owner

I grew up at the countryside having family with farms around. I enjoyed this so much that I obtained a degree in agricultural economics. Starting my professional career in the flower business  responsible for promoting the Dutch flowers in Europe. Although I had a passion for outdoor, just the moment I met Peter in 1992 I really found a soulmate to make these dreams come true. When we as family moved 10 years ago from the western part of Holland to the more eastern part of the Netherlands it was the moment for me to find a new professional challenge. Besides my job as a lecturer economics at Windesheim university in Zwolle I take care of the Tulip Cycling marketing and back office business. When not working I am still active exploring the Netherlands and just finished in 2017 the long distance Pieterpad walking trail crossing the whole country from North to South  together with our children, Vivien, Jeroen and Sander.
