The EuroVelo network consists of 16 long distance cycle routes for use by bicycle tourists and local inhabitants for transportation and recreation, linking the countries of Europe with cycling-friendly infrastructure. Sweden is home to four EuroVelo routes, covering over 5000 kilometers from the fells of Lapland to Skåne’s sandy beaches.
The network exists to spread cycle tourism route best-practices throughout member nations in Europe, and to harmonise standards and promote bicycle tourism throughout the continent.
The existing EuroVelo network is the result of collaboration and investment by municipal, regional, national and European governments, advocacy groups and commercial actors.
Cycling is a sustainable and healthy way to travel, and cycling tourism contributes to a shift to a fossil-free transport system.
EuroVelo is a registered trademark of the European Cyclists’ Federation. ECF is dedicated to promoting cycling a s a sustainable and healthy means of transportation and recreation.
ECF and EuroVelo are represented in Sweden by Cykelfrämjandet.
