Peter Vos has run Tulip Cycling for well over a decade, with the support of his wife Liesbeth. The company established an enviable reputation built on attention to detail, the best cycling routes visiting the beautiful landscapes and historic cities of Holland, and high levels of personal service.
With increasing numbers of people looking to enjoy tours with Tulip Cycling, more manpower was needed to maintain the high standards. Peter and Liesbeth therefore secured the backing of a new partner, Pieter van der Schee. Peter will continue to be very involved in the company, working with Pieter, who shares his enthusiasm and passion for the beautiful cycling paradise of the Netherlands.
My passion for maps started as a young child; I read them while others read books, dreaming of landscapes and travelling through them. As a 14-year-old boy, I bought my first road bike and from that moment on I started to explore the Netherlands. I planned the most scenic routes and of course biked them afterwards with my friends. My passion for maps didn’t stop, so that’s why I decided to obtain a professional degree as land surveyor. Together with Liesbeth, who shared my passion for travelling, outdoor sports and biking, I made great trips in Europe and some abroad on foot, by kayak, cross-country skis and of course by bike. After 20 years of experience as a land surveyor working in all parts of the Netherlands and far beyond, I was ready for a new challenge in life. Tulip Cycling seemed to be the perfect choice in 2010! I make the most scenic routes for our guests in a country which I explored myself all my life with my beloved bike!
Pieter van der Schee
I’m an explorer at heart. From a young age, I got on my bike to discover what was behind the horizon and found, amongst other things, the dappled light in a forest, medieval houses in a small fortified city on a riverside, sunlit fields with flowers divided by hedgerows, and a stork perched on top of a church tower. The freedom I felt was amazing and I kept on looking for new discoveries, as I went cycling in other parts of Holland, through the dunes along the coast, between the lakes in Friesland and in Holland’s ‘Green Heart’. Later, I started exploring other countries, moved abroad and worked for travel companies organising tours all around the world. But the pull of my homeland was irresistible and I’m now back where my heart says I belong. Working with Peter is an absolute privilege. His passion and knowledge are exemplary and he has the utmost care for the success of your cycle tour. I hope I can continue to learn from him for a long time.
