EuroVelo is the European cycle route network, is a project of the European Cyclists' Federation to develop 17 long-distance cycle routes crossing Europe. The planned total length is more than 90 000 km.


A way (road/path) that is part of a EuroVelo route should be a member of a route relation. That relation should be tagged, as a minimum:

Most EuroVelo routes are also national/regional cycle routes, so a way will often be part of two route relations.

The standard practice is to create one route relation for the extent of a EuroVelo route within a country: for example, EuroVelo 3 in France, EuroVelo 12 in the UK, and so on. These relations are then grouped together in a 'super-relation', as listed below. Do not add ways directly to the super-relation.
