EuroVelo Route Inspectors Training

Tuesday, September 10, 2019
Every year, the ECF offers a training session for future EuroVelo route inspectors. The participants learn how to survey cycling routes using the methodology and software provided by the ECF. The training courses are based on the European Certification Standard (ECS) for long-distance cycle routes.

This year's official EuroVelo Route Inspectors Training will take place on 27-28 October in Brussels.

Prices for the two-days training are:

  • 350€ for other participants
  • 30€ for bike rental (for participants who cannot bring their own bicycle)

Included in the price:

  • Two-days training on the European Certification Standard, including a full day on the theory of the methodology and presentation of the ECS application, half a day of practical training for using the app on the field, an individual test on the theory and additional presentations on the process and communication of the ECS and certification.
  • A light lunch for the two days.

The ECS can be used to:

  • Officially certify EuroVelo routes, i.e. routes that are very well developed, such as the EuroVelo 15 – Rhine Cycle Route, first fully-certified EuroVelo route.
  • Survey EuroVelo routes to get a clear idea of the route development level, analyse the current situation and assess needed investments to improve the route conditions.
  • Survey other national/regional cycle routes to assess the situation and prepare action planning tailored to the national/regional needs and goals.

You will find more information on the ECS, as well as downloadable manuals and annexes, on the European Certification Standard page.
