Greetings Bike and the Like Friends!
We enjoyed five amazing Bike and Barge spring tulip tours in April with wonderful guests!
Berthus and Jonne of Flora were great hosts, and we thank Lydia, Sietse and Tamara, for adding enthusiasm to our chock-full-of-fun tours.
Write us anytime with questions and hope you will join us on one of our fun tours! Suzie and Roger
We are a small husband and wife run company whose mission is to offer guests an all- inclusive bicycle trip at an affordable price. So quality lodging on our boat Flora, great meals, creative routes each day led by our enthusiastic guides, plus fun additions for history and cultural interests--are included in our reasonable price!
Our fun began creating tours for our hometown bike club. We also found delight in travel "on two wheels" and logged thousands of miles exploring the world on our bicycles. In our desire to share our excitement with others we created Bike and the Like!
We have hosted hundreds of tours both in the U.S. and Europe. For the last 20 years, with the help of our wonderful hand-picked guides, our guests are enjoying our creative, all-inclusive Bike and Boat trips.
If your vacation with us has been fun and memorable then we've accomplished our mission! Our greatest compliment is when you return to travel with us again!
"Nooks and crannies" — that's our approach to touring. We create routes that entice cyclists to pace their day, stop to enjoy lots of sights, and partake in local history and culture.
We love motivating those who want to experience travel by bike! We try to relay as much trip information as possible on our website to get you excited about your travel plans yet not confuse you with too many details.
Please contact Suzie: to ask a question about one of our trips or if you need information about cycling in general. She loves to chat with you!
If you have a group or organization that is interested in a custom tour, we can tailor most of our trips to fit your timeframe, interests, energy, and budget. Hope to meet you on one of our trips!
Our friendship with Sietse began 15 years ago when he helped us create a route for an upcoming tour. Sietse shared our enthusiasm for off the beaten track exploring to see new places, meeting locals and experiencing local culture.
He shares our love of geography and history while being out in nature- hiking and cycling. Guiding began for Sietse in 1990 when volunteering to guide fellow Dutchmen on camping tours throughout Europe. As he also enjoys sailing, he quickly gravitated to the new genre of Bike and Boat travel.
Like Suzie and Roger, Sietse is a "people person" who enjoys getting to know each guest personally. He is so excited to share his wealth of knowledge and wants to make your trip memorable.
Our friend for many years now, we met Lydia when she guided our city walk in Hoorn, North Holland.
A talented storyteller, Lydia's vivacious personality and unending energy makes her a favorite of our guests. When not entertaining tourists as a sought after guide, Lydia is a high profile management consultant and volunteer environmental and social leader.
We are so excited to have Lydia assist us again in 2024!
Conny is a one-of-a-kind, lovely person. A skilled captain on both large freighters and small holiday boats for many years, we were lucky to meet Conny in 2015 when she sailed our South Holland Tour.
Two years ago curious to learn trip guiding, Conny helped on our Koblenz-Amsterdam tour.
Her energetic and caring personality won the heart of our group at the get-go. Now in 2024 we are honored to have her with us on the Mosel!
