Organisation

There are three types of bodies involved in the organisation of EuroVelo.

ECF

The European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF), and more specifically the EuroVelo Management Team and the EuroVelo Council, ensure the quality and coordinate the implementation and operation of the EuroVelo network at the European level. The ECF also provides advice and support for the National EuroVelo Coordination Centres and Coordinators (NECC/Cs) and manages the exchange of skills and experience between them.

National EuroVelo Coordination Centres and Coordinators (NECC/Cs)

The NECC/Cs ensure the quality and coordinate the implementation and operation of the EuroVelo network at the national level. They also collaborate with the ECF on the development of the EuroVelo routes.

Project partners can also support

Project partners can also support the delivery of sections of a EuroVelo route within the scope of specific projects, in consultation with the ECF and the NECC/Cs. Projects have different aims and objectives but they typically involve developing action plans, joint marketing and publicity strategies, sharing best practices and improving physical infrastructure.

Investing inEuroVelo

Cycling tourism has a value of more than €44 billion per year. An amount which is higher than the European cruise ship industry. A study commissioned by the European Parliament estimates that the EuroVelo network itself, once it’s finished, will generate €7 billion of direct revenue each year. It will provide in excess of 60 million cycling trips leading through some of the most appealing routes of the continent such as the Loire à vélo in France and the Danube Cycle Path.
