Visit a flower parade

Visit a flower parade during your bike holiday!

The Netherlands cycling paradise, the Netherlands flower paradise! The Dutch are famous for their flowers. Not only in growing and exporting them, but also for showing them to the public at their well-known flower parades, which are organised in several areas in April, August and September each year. These eye-catching processions of floats colourfully decorated are a popular attraction for both tourists and locals. The parades are an equally exciting event for the participants, who each have an opportunity to win a variety of awards.  The most famous flower parade in April is the parade Noordwijk – Haarlem end the most well-known flower parade held in late August or early September is the one in Zundert,in the south western part of the Netherlands. If you happen to be visiting the Netherlands around these times , why not attend one? Simply browse the flower parade calender: http://www.optochtenkalender.nl/optochttypen/bloemencorsos.html (just Dutch written) or just ask us to include them in your bike tour!

Loops around Leiden

Shortbreaks in the picture: Bike loops around Leiden

2017 lies ahead of us. People start planning their holidays. In this newsletter we draw your attention to our ready-made bicycle tour ‘Loops around Leiden‘.
In springtime we welcome a lot of guests who like to combine the bulb area with visits to old historic towns. This shortbreak ‘Loops around Leiden’ offers the best of these two.

Based in a hotel in Leiden you will bike through fields full of daffolils, hyacinths and tulips to the Keukenhof gardens. Another day you will cycle through typical Dutch lowlands: dikes, lovely villages, cows in pastureland, cheese and windmills. And what about a tour to the governmental city of the Hague and the famous city of Delft… it’s all in it. And if you want to cycle more days through the flower area, we arrange it. Or as one of our customers wrote about this tour,  'Loops around Leiden': ";We had a really brilliant cycling holiday with Tulip Cycling. The bikes, routes and support from Tulip has been fantastic. Thoroughly recommend! Just wish we could stay longer."

Keukenhof Gardens

Keukenhof Gardens is the world’s largest flower garden, and actually a promotion for the Dutch flower industry. Approximately seven million flower bulbs are planted annually in the park with not only tulips, but also hyacinths, daffodils and other spring flowers on display. The gardens are open from the last week in March to mid-May. Keukenhof is one of the most visit tourist attractions in the Netherlands.


The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam is the largest and most prestigious museum for art and history in the Netherlands. It has a large collection of paintings from the Dutch Golden Age including works by Vermeer and Rembrandt. Until 2013, the museum is being completely renovated, but the major masterpieces are still on show.
