It all started at the kitchen table

Vrienden op de Fiets began in 1984, at Nel de Blécourt's kitchen table. Nel and her husband Hijbo made Vrienden op de Fiets a Dutch household name. In the subsequent years, the network developed into a foundation with tens of thousands of Friends and almost six thousand Dutch and international guest addresses.

In 2003, the couple stopped working for the foundation and their children continued their work. Since 2011, the work is carried out by a small team under the supervision of an independent Board.
