TyreToTravel was started in 2012 by Jan Boersma and Michel van Hagen, both enthusiastic bikers and lovers of riding fantastic tours.
The basis for Tyre was laid in 2006, when the Dutch minister Boersma combined his two hobbies: motorcycling and programming. He created Tyre: the program that made Google Maps work with TomTom.
In the six years that Tyre exists the program has been continually upgraded. Without any commercial effort or advertising it has become the most popular freeware program for creating GPS routes. More than 500,000 people worldwide use it. Now is the time for further professionalization and expansion of the capabilities of Tyre. So we can all enjoy more perfect routes. TyreToTravel makes that possible.
