Euro Velo 1 is a cycling route that runs from Portugal to the North Cape, along the coast of western Europe.
6 countries have joined forces on a project called "Atlantic on Bike", where Statens Vegvesen (the Norwegian Public Roads Administration) represents Norway.
A project group of 40 people had a meeting in Tromsø last week and worked hard on the project. Presentation of bicycle tourism in Northern Norway was done by Arctic Cycling and Kystriksveien Reiseliv. Dialogue for further collaboration has started. The stay ended with a midnight sun bike ride on Friday night. Feedback from the leader: "we had an amazing scenery bike trip along the coast with all the partners, they were totally « in love » with this excellent ambiance and good bikes they tested. Congratulation for the high quality of the bikes." At Tromsø Outdoor we were happy to supply bikes to the guests and for the further cooperation on the project.
