Eurovelo 17

(Summary information and map credit: European Cyclists’ Federation)

“The charming alpine village of Andermatt in Switzerland is not only the starting point of EuroVelo 15 but also marks the beginning of the latest edition to the network, EuroVelo 17 – Rhône Cycle Route. Following the course of the Rhône river, the route ends over a thousand kilometres later on the beautiful Mediterranean coast of France. Connecting the Alps, Lake Geneva, the lavender fields of Provence and the wild white horses of the Camargue, the shortest EuroVelo route packs in a surprising amount of different cultures, landscapes and experiences.”

  1. The odd number EV routes (EV1, EV3, etc.) are North/South routes and the even number routes (EV2, EV4, etc.) are East/West routes.

    There is no EV14 because there were no more E/W routes, but there was another N/S route, so to keep with the numbering convention, the 14th route (which is N/S) was given the EV15 designation.

    Does that make sense?
