EuroVelo, the European cycle network


Ever dreamed of travelling across an entire continent on your own steam?

Thanks to EuroVelo, a project of the European Cyclists’ Federation, cycling across Europe is not only possible, but safe, attractive and comfortable too. A network of 15 transcontinental routes, stretching from the Atlantic to the Black Sea, the Arctic to the Mediterranean, each one has something new to offer.
Whether it is cycling beside the romantic Rhine as it sweeps through Germany; crossing stunning Alpine passes and tunnels; or riding all the way to the land of the northern lights, Europe offers endless attractions, all easily accessible by bike.

EuroVelo is the European cycle route network – a network of 15 long distance cycle routes that connect the whole continent. It is expected to be complete by 2020, with routes each arranged according to a theme. Here is a quick preview of the routes:
