EuroVelo 8 – Spanish Route 2018
From Forte dei Marmi to Valencia 2018
2nd Step of Eurovelo 8 a cycling adventure of over 1300 km from Forte dei Marmi to Valencia. Facing the journey are Paolo Pagni, CEO of Cicloturismo, a leading Italian website in the sector and close collaborator of the Animo Onlus Foundation, and Antony Ferrari. The project is aimed at supporting and promoting sustainable, alternative mobility: Paolo and Antony will have the delicate task of raising awareness of the issue among the people they meet on their journey.
The “Eurovelo 8” route is part of the European cycle path system which aims to connect the entire continent with itineraries specifically designed for cycling. Most of the Eurovelo routes, including number 8, are under development, so Paolo and Antony will have to personally map out the itinerary to cycle day by day.
Paolo and Antony will cross 3 countries: Italy, France and Spain.
Valencia is the arrival point of the 2nd step of Eurovelo 8, but Paolo and Antony’s adventure will not end here. Their goal is in fact to complete a sort of duathlon studied and developed independently. Once they arrive in the city, after having traveled over 1,300 km by bicycle, they will face the Valencia Marathon.
