The Rhine Cycle Route EuroVelo 15 in 2017

2017 will be influenced by the 200th anniversary of the bicycle. When Karl von Drais made the first ride on his invention called “Laufmaschine” (literally “running machine”) on June 12, 1817 through Mannheim, a town along the Rhine Cycle Route EuroVelo 15, he laid the ground stone for a new era of mobility. In the meantime, the “Laufmaschine” has developed into a modern bicycle and has become a vital everyday mode of transportation for many people around the world. To celebrate this anniversary, many events will take place along the Rhine Cycle Route in 2017, especially in Baden-Wuerttemberg, the birth place of the bicycle.
