From Catalonia to the Czech Republic

La mappa degli itinerari proposti da Eurovelo | Claudio Pedroni / Wikimedia

'For those fortunate ones who have leapt into their bicycle saddles and are rearing to go - where can they go? EuroVelo ('EuroBike'), the network of European cycle routes, provides around 66 thousand kilometres of cycle paths for adventurous cycle tourists throughout the EU nations. The map, created thanks to the European cyclists federation (ECF), offers a choice of twelve routes subdivided into geographical areas from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, all in the name of eco-sustainable tourism. The project also proposes to improve the quality and safety of the rides, as well as to build up the economies of the local communities.'
