The EuroVelo and Cycle Tourism Conference 2018 

EuroVelo is the European cycle route network: 15 long distance cycle routes that connect the entire continent. EuroVelo aims to encourage more people cycling more often by creating a network of high standard long distance cycle routes, over 70,000km, for both leisure and transportation purposes. The ECF coordinates the network on a European level in cooperation with our national and regional partners.


The EuroVelo and Cycle Tourism Conferences have been held every other year since 2012 to share knowledge, highlight good practices and encourage further development of the EuroVelo network and cycle tourism generally across Europe.
