Euro Velo is a continental wide cycle route network aimed at development of a sustainable Trans-European Network. At present the network consists of twelve long-distance routes with a total length of 66 000 km of which about 45 000 km are existing. The network is in development by the European Cyclists Federation according to a set of criteria for establishment of high standards of design, service, signage and promotion of the routes.
The development and operation of the EuroVelo routes are carried in partnership by national, regional and local governments, commercial service providers and NGOs throughout Europe.
