EuroVelo diary : learn about the upcoming events in 2018


Last year was a successful year for EuroVelo, and we are happy to report that 2018 is also to be a busy and fascinating year. We have set out below the major events happening throughout the coming year for your calendars.

From the 7th to the 11th of March, EuroVelo will be attending ITB Berlin, the world’s leading travel and tourism trade fair. We will be located in hall 4.1b, booth no. 245. During these four days, the team will present EuroVelo and promote cycle tourism. We also proudly announce that we are to organize the ITB’s first-ever Cycle-Tourism Day on 9 March, together with the ADFC. There will be conferences and panel discussions, providing an opportunity for people to learn more about the industry we work in.

Between the 23rd and 24th of April, anyone interested in the European Certification Standard for long-distance cycle routes will be able to participate in the EuroVelo Inspector Training Course in Letterkenny, county of Donegal, Ireland. The participants will learn how to survey a EuroVelo route and receive a certificate at the end of the course.

Following the last Velo-City Conference in Arnhem-Nijmegen, The Netherlands, which was a great success, the next Velo-City Conference will be hosted in Rio de Janeiro between the 12th and 15th of June. The conference series is the biggest urban-mobility and bicycle event in the world, and for four days, specialists involved in policy, promotion and provision of bicycle facilities and programs will be brought together. Cycle tourism will be one of the main themes of this year’s conference.

Finally, the 4th EuroVelo and Cycle Tourism Conference will take place in October. The city that will host the one-day conference will be announced in the following weeks. In addition, the Annual National EuroVelo Coordination Centres and Coordinators meeting will take place at about the same time.

The EuroVelo Team is working to make a difference in 2018 and we wish you all the best this year with more people discovering Europe by bike!
