There have been a number of route development projects in recent years.  Each one has slightly different aims and objectives but they typically involve developing action plans, joint marketing and publicity strategies, sharing best practices and even improvements to physical infrastructure.

In most cases the ECF is one partner in a multinational team.  At the moment, it is involved in a long term management agreement  related to EuroVelo 15 – Rhine Route.

At the moment, there are three EU funded ongoing projects :

EuroVelo 10 – Baltic Sea Cycle Route – funded by Interreg South Baltic

EuroVelo 8 – Mediterranean Route – funded by the Interreg Mediterranen Programme

EuroVelo 1 – Atlantic Coast Route – funded by the EU Atlantic Area Interreg programme


Three one year route development projects sponsored by DG ENTR were completed. DG Grow, also sponsored one project.  To view their individual project pages click on the links below.

The ECF is always keen to hear about proposals for new route development projects and welcomes the opportunity to share the knowledge and experience it has gained from past projects.
