The main highlights included the launch of the latest route to join the EuroVelo network which became the fourth new route to be added to the network since it was first launched back in 1995. A panel discussion about the development of “scenic cycle routes and trails through natural and cultural landscapes” with leading experts from ECF, ADFC and other cycling and tourism organisations. We also particularly highlighted our successful long-term developments such as EuroVelo 13 – Iron Curtail Trail, EuroVelo 15 – Rhine Cycle Route and our current on-going projects like AtlanticOnBike, Biking South Baltic!, MEDCYCLETOUR and the EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route COSME project.
We also welcomed visitors for a networking lunch as part of the Cycling Tourism Day on Friday, 8 March. You can have a look at the full day’s programme, photos and presentations below.
