team tulip cycling 2018 about us


Peter Vos – owner

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!

Liesbeth van Vulpen – owner

I grew up in the countryside between family members who were farmers. As a child I enjoyed this very much and therefore decided to earn a degree in agricultural economics. I started my professional career in the flower business and was responsible for promoting the Dutch flowers in Europe. Although I had a passion for outdoor in 1992, the moment I met Peter, I really found a soulmate to make these dreams come true. When we ten years ago as family moved 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 in economics at Windesheim university in Zwolle I am responsible for the marketing and back office activities of Tulip Cycling. Besides my work I still enjoy the Netherlands and just finished in 2017 together with our children, Vivien, Jeroen and Sander the long distance Pieterpad walking trail that crosses the entire country from North to South.

The team

Tulip Cycling is a small family business. Besides Peter and Liesbeth we use some professional freelance bike guides. All with a passion for cycling, excellent knowledge of our country to ensure that you as guest have a unique experience while you cycle through the Netherlands.

Tulip Cycling, it’s better by bike!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.
