I plan to cycle from London to Rome to raise awareness on climate change amongst EU citizen, can ECF sponsor me?
ECF loves to raise awareness on climate change and other environmental issues. However, ECF can’t sponsor individuals even if they plan to cycle around the earth on a monocycle. We would of course be happy to publish some great stories and pictures on our website and on our social media channels.
How is ECF funded?
ECF receives funding from 3 main sources: membership fees, EU projects and grants, sponsorship. ECF gratefully acknowledges financial support from the European Commission for 2011.
How can I have my logo published on the ECF website?
ECF is an umbrella federation for national cycling organizations. It only publishes its members’ and sponsors’ logos. For more information on how to become a sponsor please contact our Secretary General Bernhard Ensink.
Can ECF help me to organize my cycling holidays?
Sorry, but we coordinate the planning of cycle routes, and unfortunately can’t help individuals with specific route information. We’d love to help all those avid cycling tourists plan their holidays but we’re not the experts.
Have a look at the EuroVelo overview map, and contact the national coordinators in the countries where you’d like to cycle. They’ll be able to give you the most up to date information and send you pedaling in the right direction.
You can find more info on the EuroVelo network here as well as a list of local coordinators.
