Is there a missing link? Please let me know!

  1. Hi Andrew,
    Have you any idea of how good the direction l signage is on the Spanish section of route 1? I did the French section last year which for most of the route was excellent .
    Thx
    Alan

  2. Hi Andrew,
    For the French section, you have the full coverage on this website : http://www.velodyssey.com/.
    Regards

    • Thanks for the link. I’ll try to remember to add it to the list of links on this page when I get back home in September but if I forget, please remind me!

  3. We wrote also an article about the EUrovelo1. We support the candidature of Nantes to host Velo-city in 2015. We want to improve our cycling policy !

    • Hello Violaine,

      We are delighted to hear that Nantes would like to host Velo-city in 2015.
      We shall be passing through Nantes in the Spring of next year and would very much like to spend some time in the City and make contacts there.

      We are Spoke n Chain, a creative bicycle arts team that came into being in 2009 in Bristol, and discovered both the Eurovelo routes and Kamishibai this year, (storytelling from the back of a bicycle).
      We are currently developing our workshop and performance techniques and rigging a Yuba bicycle with a Kamishibai stage, a projector, a sound system and built in power generation in order to undertake a full blown bicycle storytelling theatre tour next year, beginning in April.

      We plan to travel from Bristol to Plymouth, then to Bordeaux (twinned with Bristol) and Brest (twinned with Plymouth) along Eurovelo 1, performing and running workshops along the way, and then East along Eurovelo 6 and wherever else the Eurovelo routes take us over the next few years, a return to Nantes in 2015 perhaps.

  5. Hello, together!

    I´m searching a cycle-track I´ve seen a year ago along the atlantic coast next to St. Nazaire while starting my ride with EuroVelo 6 to Basel.
    This trail was called “L´Ocean á velo” but I can´t find any informations about this track. Where does it start – and end?

    I´d like to cycle next year from St. Nazaire along the coast to Amsterdam – I´ve got a recumbent bike (velo couche) so I CAN´T go any steep paths.
    Does anybody has some Informations about this track – alternatively I could take the EuroVelo 1 – but this doesn´t go along the coast.
    How steep are there the paths?

    Would be happy to get any informations – journey will start in May 2012

  6. My trip this year, Bath to Biarritz, followed Route 1 for some of the way, the second half of our trip certainly.
