EuroVelo 8 – New MedCycleTour website online


We recently launched the new MedCycleTour project website to support the development of EuroVelo 8 – the Mediterranean Route. It is a long-distance cycle route that connects the whole Mediterranean from Cádiz to Athens and Cyprus. The overall objective of the MedCycleTour project is to use this route as a tool to influence regional and national policies in favour of sustainable and responsible tourism, providing transnational solutions in coastal areas across the Mediterranean.

The new website provides information on events, news and deliverables as part of the project. Addressing professionals, it also explains the background and goals of the project and which partners are involved. Just click on the menu item in the top right corner to access the menu items relevant to the MedCycleTour project.

The deliverables that were already published include the Corporate Design Manual, minutes from three different project meetings as well as presentations and photos of the Route Inspectors Training in Seville last year. Other news and documents will follow.

The MedCycleTour project is part of the transnational European Cooperation Programme for the Mediterranean area, which sees partner states from 13 countries cooperating in the Interreg MED Programme 2014-2020. The main objective of this program is to promote sustainable growth in the Mediterranean area by fostering innovative concepts and practices and a reasonable use of resources and by supporting social integration through an integrated and territorially based cooperation approach.

If you would like to cycle along EuroVelo 8 – the Mediterranean Route, please have a look at the route website.
