Guide Biography:

Ron really knows Europe! He was born and raised in Holland, having spent most of his life in the Netherlands, Germany and France. By the time he was 21 he’d explored a good portion of Europe and was fluent in Dutch, German, French and English. Since then he’s learned Spanish and Italian and claims to be able to get anything done, also through the phone! Without a language barrier, Ron has access to people, places and a true insider’s perspective which he shares with every guest. He has always been fascinated with European history and its various cultures – each intertwined and yet different in so many ways. After graduating from college in the States, he spent 7 months biking through Southern and Eastern Europe. It was then that he realized there’s no better way to explore Europe than along its back roads on the seat of a bike. Ron got into the biking/travel business in 1983, and is proud to say he hasn’t stopped pedaling since!
