Route classification: Under development
The Gulf of Riga will be on my right as I cycle across the border into Latvia, then Riga itself – the capital – before continuing along the coastal EuroVelo 10 in the direction of Lithuania.
“The route, from Ainazi in the north to the south-west harbour city of Liepaja, is approximately 680 km long. About one third of the route follows the sea coast on quiet beaches with white sand. In some parts, the beach surface is smooth and solid enough for comfortable cycling right beside the water! In addition to the capital city Riga and the resort city of Jurmala, EuroVelo 10 also passes through many interesting little towns such as Salacgriva, Kuldiga, Kandava and Ventspils. Travellers will definitely enjoy the idyllic Latvian countryside, sea coast and the picturesque old towns on their way.”ECF EuroVelo
