BRUSSELS, Belgium (BRAIN) — The European Cyclists' Federation has launched a new website, www.eurovelo.com, that provides information to those wishing to cycle the EuroVelo routes, a 70,000 kilometer (44,000 mile) cycling route network crisscrossing Europe.
The site provides information on 14 EuroVelo routes.
“As a cycle tourist, I used to spend a lot of time searching the web to find the information I needed,” said Adam Bodor, EuroVelo director at ECF.
“But now with the launch of EuroVelo.com, the days of having an endless list of bookmarks in my browser should be in the past, as the website provides links to the best sources of information in each country. This is a big step forward for EuroVelo and cycle tourism in Europe.”
By completing this website, ECF and the European Commission hope to fill a gap but also to continue the development of cycle tourism across the continent. It has been estimated that EuroVelo could attract 14.5 million overnight cyclists and generate 7 billion euros ($9.1 billion) of total direct revenues when the network is completed.
