EuroVelo cyclists will pass through Albania during their Mediterranean cycling tour which starts in Spain and ends in Cyprus, as announced by European Cyclists’ Federation.
“Cycling tourism is booming rapidly at a time when a new journey through the Mediterranean will also highlight the hidden land of eagles” is the title of an article published at “Easier.com” which bears witness for cycling tourism throughout Europe.
The organizers of EuroVelo have expressed their excitement in including Albania in the tour map for 2015. They declared that “Albania has a beautiful nature; the mountains offer the chance to discover the real Albania, an amazing land with an authentic and undiscovered culture, affordable prices and friendly people.”
The Mediterranean cycling tour will be held in 11 countries, starting from Spain, France, Monaco, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnje-Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Greece and Cyprus, approximately a 5900 tour.
The cycling tour is organized by the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) which is coordinating the development of a network of high-quality cycling routes that connect the whole continent. The routes can be used by long-distance cycle tourists, as well as by local people making daily journeys. EuroVelo currently is comprised of 14 routes and it is envisaged that the network will be substantially complete by 2020.
