Transporting luggage

We offer you two options for luggage transport:

1. Luggage transport service

      If you don't want to carry your luggage on the bike, you can use our courier service for reliable and safe daily, luggage transport. Just leave your luggage in your room or in the hotel lobby and our courier will pick it up after 10 a.m. and deliver it to your next hotel/B&B before 4 p.m.


  If you choose the Tulip Cycling luggage transport option then it is advisable to rent the handlebar bag for the storage of small, daily items and valuables. If you plan to do shopping along the way or carrying a picnic lunch, you might consider renting an extra pair of small, rear panniers.


2. Handlebar bag + panniers rental

    If you choose to carry your luggage with you on the bicycle, rent our high-end bags and panniers. Manufactured by Ortlieb and made from ultra- strong Kodra nylon which is water-proof and light-weight. The bags are easy to adjust and remove by way of the patented 'klickfix' system. The size and quantity of bags you require for your tour will depend on your travelling style ('light' or 'heavy'). Remember you can compare the capacity of the panniers with the capacity of your existing luggage. If you have more luggage to carry you can also rent a luggage trailer. If you have extra luggage that you don’t want to bring along during your cycling tour, it may remain in our depot; safe and free of charge.

Route guidance

For all our tours we offer the 'best route' itineraries; to discover the hidden gems that others never get to see.

Self-guided tours

We use the most up-to-date and dedicated route support system available to cyclists. It combines the reliability and accuracy of GPS navigation, along with a paper map providing the route overview. The itinerary is based on your personal choices, together with our route manager's comprehensive knowledge of the safest and the most scenic routes.

Your personal daily routes are pre-installed into the easy-to-use lightweight Garmin eTrex GPS device. The GPS adds a totally new dimension to the self-guided touring concept. Taking a wrong turning and getting lost becomes a thing of the past! Garmin has designed very intuitive screen menus and so you certainly don't have to be a computer nerd to operate this clever little device!

Breakdown & Insurance

High quality and well-maintained gear means fewer problems, which is better for you and for us. But despite the quality of our equipment, you could be faced with equipment failure. For minor defects that may prevent you from continuing your tour, you can use the toolkit provided or you can go directly to one of the many local bicycle repair shops. In case of major breakdowns that prevent you from using the bicycle altogether, contact our base station at any time of the day. Tulip Cycling is associated with FietsNED which is a group of independent bicycle technicians who each work in their own region spread over the whole of the Netherlands. Combined, they form a network of fully equipped mobile workshops for emergency repairs. In the event of a breakdown, the FietsNED response time is 30 minutes and their 'on the spot repair' success rate is 95%. For the remaining 5% of breakdowns the bike will be replaced as quickly as possible.
 
You can insure your rental equipment against damage and theft. View the insurance terms and conditions.

  Tulip Cycling does not offer travel insurance for loss of personal belongings, health problems etc.
The support given by Tulip Cycling was excellent. The equipment, choice of bike paths and the pre-programmed GPS made the whole experience one of pure delight and fun with gorgeous sights all the way, wonderful accommodations and easy travel.
Tissot family, USA
A wonderful trip!!! Thanks to Peter for all his help to make it so special (and for convincing me to do the trip without a tour group). We had such a great time. My two 10 year old girls had such a great fun (and were proud of their accomplishment). It is a of a trip we will all remember. Thanks for everything! I’ve already recommended you to friends.
Sharon Moore
Just returned from our fabulous journey from Amsterdam to Bruges. It was outstanding! The itinerary, the equipment (bikes, GPS, maps, etc.) and our guide Peter were fantastic. Peter really have deep knowledge of his country, what a memorable ride across the Netherlands.
Brigitte and Francois
Thank you for everything. We packed lots of memories into this trip. It was a grand way to learn about Netherlands and see what a cultured and friendly place it is.
The GPS was essential, and we are so glad we learned to use it. Everytime, we wondered where is Peter taking us? We would come across a canal, field of flowers, quaint village, spectacular scenery. Thank you so much.
Susan and Billy Hobart
You run a very professional organization and we look forward to more tours in the future. You have made us biking enthusiasts.
Michael and Chau Smith
Because of you we had a magnificient trip! I’m excited to tell all my friends about my trip and this lovely country and encourage them to come and visit and use Tulip Cycling to see the country.

I thought I would just let you know we are having such a GREAT TIME!! Maybe you can find a job for a orthodontist and a Radiologist for us.?

Thank you so much for this very enjoyable experience! Your organizational skills and attention to detail are outstanding.

Just to thank you again for the wonderful trip, yours was the 7th we made and one of our favorites now
Alicia Fuentes
My wife and I just finished a 4 day self guided tour. It was fabulous! Tulip planned a route that we never could have found on our own. The equipment and handling of our luggage made everything easy. We loved the trip!!
Bob Brownson
Thank you Tulip Cycling for a exciting and scenic 5 day tour through part of your beautiful country. Peter’s meticulous organisation and first class equipment made our ride a memorable one.
Geoff and Bethany Canberra Australia
Our friends recommended this cycling trip for my 50th birthday and it was a fabulous celebration-- by far the best family vacation we’ve ever taken! The route Peter crafted for us was perfect-- so beautiful! The hotels were quaint, food was delicious. And our 11 and 12 year old loved riding tandem. I cried when we had to go home. We’ve talked about this trip for months... can’t wait to return. A 5-star experience!
Jane and Mark
The trip overall was our favorite vacation we've ever taken. We feel privileged to have visited. As a lifelong cyclist, it was like visiting the promised land.
Katherine and Stephen Coleman, USA
Thank you for organizing our trip this summer, we had a fantastic time and will definitely return in the future. We had so many good experiences traveling along the countryside enjoying the scenery and weather.
Auburn and Sean Brady, USA
We had a great time in Holland.
Thank you for everything.

Our memories are still fresh in our minds and we loved every minute of out time in the Netherlands. Your company ensured the cycling portion was flawless and most enjoyable. Thank you for providing top quality bicycles and support equipment.
John and Peg Lalonde, Canada
The tour was wonderful, and I've recommended your services highly to my friends. In particular, the route selection was superb.
Judith Macaluso, USA
We had the most wonderful holiday with your company and I wish to say a big thank you for all your hard work and professionalism in ensuring we had the best possible experience.
Gillian and John Au, UK
Tulip Cycling just got better!
We do a weeks self guided tour with Tulip Cycling every year and have now been cycling for 9 years each time in a different area of this lovely country.
John and Christine Widdowson, UK
Our trip with you was fantastic....and we've told many others about it. The GPS made it unique.
Martens family, USA
We have recommended your business to many people – as we had a terrific cycling trip, due to your professional organisation and fabulous path routing. The GPS was brilliant and the route really showcased the variety of experiences available in the Netherlands – there is no better way to see a country than through the eyes of a local.
Thank you, again.
Richard Lewis
It was truly an extraordinary journey, where everything was carefully prepared by you and your staff.
We were enchanted by the landscapes of flower fields, windmills, canals, small towns and by the kindness with which we were treated by the Dutch people. It was really unforgettable days that make us want to return, and invite our friends as well.
Emerson de Carvalho
Tailor made tour for 3 days of cycling for my husband, me and teenage son! Fantastic bikes, superb organization!!! A fantastic get away and we just had to show up. Lots of opportunity to add in our own stops along the way, the route details, booked hotels and luggage transport made for a stress free journey. Peter is outstanding and lives what he does. Every detail taken care of do you can just get on the bike pedal away with your GPS route!
Elspeth
We did a six day ride in June to mark my 70th birthday. The accommodations were amazing; small, neat, clean hotels and bed and breakfasts. The GPS was a little iffy for us, but Peter always answered our call for a quick fix! I would love to come back and do another ride.
Terry Dickow
Yes, one can DIY a bike trip around the country, but we believe that the depth of knowledge that Tulip provided for our ride took us to and through places that we would not otherwise have experienced just following a map or Google Maps over 16 days. We believe Tulip provided very good value and we recommend them highly.
Julie So
We asked Peter to plan a ride on our tandem from Amsterdam to Ghent, Belgium in 8 days in September 2018. He planned the route, with beautiful maps and excellent GPS, arranged the hotels and the luggage transport. We even go to almost see the King in The Hague.
Only thing he couldn't control was the weather, when a storm blew in from the North Sea. We got a bit wet and wind-blown, but thoroughly enjoyed all of his arrangements.
Dolly Craft
We did the short version of the historic town. It was perfect for us as an American family of four with two teenage kids (13 and 16). If we ever get another chance, we would do it again and probably build in more days to the trip to just enjoy the different towns.
Samantha Pearson
My husband and I did a 1-week tour through parts of the Netherlands in May 2018 and we loved our experience. Peter and Tulip Cycling were amazing! The level of detail and organization is spectacular! Communication with Peter is easy and quick. Our experience was so good that we are returning again next year with a large group! I highly recommend this tour company - you will be very pleased with the service!
Natascha Wesch
We were very happy with your cycling service. The e-bikes and GPS were an excellent choice for us as was your instruction at the outset. The Hanseatic tour was very interesting and the countryside beautiful. We particularly noticed how friendly and helpful the people in Holland are. We also noticed a more positive attitude about cyclists by motorists in Holland compared to motorists in Canada.
