Description:

EuroVelo is a project, promoted by the European Cycling Federation, for the creation of a network of 15 long-haul cycling routes to connect and link the whole European continent. These routes may be used not only by those cyclist interested in sustainable travelling but also by local people who commute daily. Based on already existing or newly-established itineraries, they will be interconnected to the extent possible.

The European route Eurovelo 1, on the Atlantic coast, combines –in a long course– different scenarios and resources: from the wildest sea coasts in Norway or Ireland and the British and French Atlantic areas to the southern landscapes in inland Spain, steeped in history and cultural heritage, to end in the coasts of the Portuguese Algarve.

La Rioja forms part of the Eurovelo 1 route (through La Rioja Turismo S.A.U), the so-called Atlantic Coast Route, which runs from the North Cape (Norway) to Sagres (Portugal) with a
total length of 8,186 km. It is part of the project Atlantic on Bike (sponsored by the European Regional Development Fund-FEDER) involving 22 members from six different countries: Norway, Great Britain, Ireland, France, Portugal and Spain, where there are five autonomous communities merged with Eurovelo 1 (Navarre, La Rioja, Castile-Leon, Extremadura and Andalusia) in addition to the Association of “Ruta de la Plata” (Silver Route) Cities Cooperation Network.

The purpose of the Government of La Rioja and La Rioja Turismo addition to the Eurovelo 1 cycling route is to promote a tourist economy based on the natural diversity of our region as well as on the richness of the cultural heritage and its sustainability. The route partly runs along the Way of St. James historical itinerary and other milestones such as the Suso and Yuso Monasteries, world heritage site, or either scenic surroundings with a great natural and cultural value, like La Rioja vineyard landscaping.
