ECF strongly supports European proposal linking public health to cycling
The consequences of congestion in urban zones are as far-reaching as they are diverse. It’s about much more than the immediate nuisance of wasted time – not only does a city centre in gridlock see its economy suffer and its people despair, but most notably it will have a negative impact on citizens’ health and well-being.
A brand new EuroVelo route & three extensions move a step closer to joining network
The proposed EuroVelo 17 (Rhone Cycle Route), extensions to EuroVelo 1 (Atlantic Coast Route) in Iceland and Portugal and EuroVelo 8 (Mediterranean Route) in Corsica have all become official ‘Candidate Routes’ following the decision of the EuroVelo Council at the end of June. The applicants will now have until the end of 2015 to implement the four routes before a final decision is taken on whether they can formally become part of the network.
