Your gateway to adventure on two wheels

Picture cycling through Europe on your bicycle, the wind in your hair and a big smile on your face. That’s what EuroVelo is all about — making cycling in Europe comfortable and fun!

EuroVelo is a network of 17 long-distance cycle routes that cross and connect 38 countries of Europe over more than 90,000 kilometers. These routes are for everyone: long-distance cycle tourists, tourists, and locals. They are truly for any visitor who wants to explore a region in an active, healthy way. EuroVelo is synonymous with quality sustainable travel across Europe.

EuroVelo offers a unique opportunity to explore Europe in a manner that’s slower, more relaxed, climate-friendly and culturally enriching than motorized options. Did you know that you can see two European capitals in one day by cycling? Vienna and Bratislava are only 70 kilometers apart, via a lovely ride along the Danube on EuroVelo 6 – Atlantic-Black Sea!

If you seek outdoor adventure, consider a longer cycle trip, for example along major European rivers such as the Rhine (EuroVelo 15 – Rhine Cycle Route) or the Meuse (EuroVelo 19 – Meuse Cycle Route), or on a sun-kissed stretch of seacoast (EuroVelo 8 – Mediterranean Route). Renting a bicycle in Europe is easily done and European trains are known for being efficient,  easy to use and generally able to accommodate many bicycles. Combining cycling with a rail trip is a great idea for green travel in Europe.

Choosing to cycle on EuroVelo routes means getting closer to locals and exploring rural and less-visited areas for a truly enriching experience. Don’t worry if you’re new to cycling — EuroVelo routes can be broken down into manageable segments that are suitable even for beginners. The EuroVelo website has everything you need to plan your trip, from handy maps to information about facilities and services along these routes across Europe. You can plan your trip with the EuroVelo Route Planner, which provides detailed information on each route to help you choose the one that suits you best.

Wherever you are in Europe, chances are there’s a sweet stretch of cycling route nearby. This is why EuroVelo is perfect for travelers who want to explore new cultures and enjoy outdoor activities under their own power. If you’re ready for an unforgettable trip through Europe, EuroVelo is for you!

Whether you’re planning a multi-week adventure across the continent or a weekend getaway close to home, EuroVelo offers a cycling experience like no other. Pack your bags, hop on your bike, and get ready to create unforgettable memories on Europe’s best cycling routes!
