EuroVelo guidelines will boost international cycle route developments

A new set of cycle route guidelines was released by Sustrans yesterday. The Bristol charity produced the guidelines for EuroVelo, the European cycle route network, in order to share good practice with route developers across the whole of Europe.

The "EuroVelo Guidelines for Implementation" document was produced in association with TMS Consultancy.

EuroVelo is the project to develop 12 long-distance international cycle routes spanning Europe (East and West). The network will be used for cycling holidays as well as local journeys. EuroVelo is also a catalyst, spreading best practice in cycle route development throughout Europe.

The new guidelines list the best existing technical practice from 12 countries and at European level, including the British National Cycle Network guidelines and the IHT/CTC publication Cycle Friendly Infrastructure.

Philip Insall, Sustrans' international liaison manager and editor of the new guidelines, said:

"We have worked with colleagues in more than 20 countries to put together these guidelines to planning and building international cycle routes. The development of EuroVelo is a massively complicated task, but with the shift in European transport policies towards greener travel and the predictions of a €20 billion cycle tourism market by 2020, we are confident of its success."
