Greetings Bike and the Like Friends!
Spring is here and its great to be out and about in beautiful weather! Roger and I are fully vaccinated and getting emails from guests with the same news and hungering to travel.
Latest news from the Dutch government is they are opening up in phases and on May 1, announcing other news- we hope positive for international travel.
We were sad to miss the 2021 Tulip Season, but in the meantime, Captains Berthus and Jonne continue sprucing up "Flora" in expectation of our new trip in June.
Maybe you will join us! We are introducing a summmer Bike and Boat to 4 provinces- June 5-16, including the Zeeland islands. It is a special 12 day tour at a wonderful price- $1,499.
We want to thank our Bike and Boat Tulip friends who Zoomed with us and rebooked for 2022 Tulip Tours.
Best to you for continued happiness and health! Suzie and Roger
We are a small husband and wife run company proud to be "hands-on-personal" in all phases of your trip.
Our mission has always been to offer guests an all inclusive bicycle trip — personal hosting and great support, quality lodging, terrific meals and lots of fun additions for history and cultural interests. All this at a 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, for the last 20 years guiding 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. Always engaging and with endless enthusiasm, Sietse makes each day fun and unique for you- scouting out beautiful routes and interesting stops along the way.
