Construction of bicycle paths leads to a developed local infrastructure and safe movement of cyclists as well as improves access to tourist attractions, thus contributing to the development of bicycle tourism and adding value for city’s tourism offer and the environment in general.


The availability of bicycle paths allows Ventspils to successfully integrate into the EuroVelo network as well as promotes internal population mobility.
