What is EuroVelo?

EuroVelo is a network of long-distance cycling routes connecting and uniting the whole European continent. The routes can be used by bicycle travellers and tourists as well as by local daily commuters. The network is currently comprised of 15 routes that are about to be overall completed by 2020.

EuroVelo aims to:

  • Promote economically, environmentally and socially sustainable travel;
  • Improve the quality of EuroVelo routes in all participating European countries;
  • Promote uniform signposting of EuroVelo routes in accordance with official standards;
  • Provide Europe-wide information on EuroVelo routes and national cycle routes;
  • Support the development of national coordination centres for EuroVelo route and national routes;
  • Foster exchange of experience and best practices between European countries and regions, stimulating high quality cycle strategies and infrastructure for EuroVelo and national cycle routes.

EuroVelo proyect implementation and service quality is coordinated by the European Cyclists Federation (ECF) in collaboration with EuroVelo National Coordinators and Coordination Centers (NECC / Cs). In Spain, the NECC / C is under Association ConBici (National Coordinator in Defense of the Bicycle).
