Im looking to see if anyone has gpx files for EuroVelo 15, as I would like to put it into a cyclo computer and just go!

I downloaded quit a few EV .gpx's (complete) from https://www.biroto.eu/en/ (including EV 15).

You have to register and give an e-mail address and it's a bit cryptic. But I've never received any SPAM nor any messages I didn't request. I found the easiest route was to request the EV gpx as a e-mail

Search for route at https://www.biroto.eu/en/cycle-route-retrieval
Enter EV15
Select the EV 15 (from "Multiple Countries") at the top.
There is a bar above the map "Actions" with a plus sign - click on it.
Select "Download GPX"
Accept the copyright details
The select download.
(Above should be mostly accurate'ish but should at least give enough clues from what might be a challenge otherwise)

The e-mail option seems to have disappeared from when I used it previously this summer.
Has routes fro most EVs (all that I wanted but can't comment on those I didn't want). Must be one of the most user unfriendly sites but has really useful data which makes it worthwhile. I didn't find any issues with the EV tracks I downloaded (though e.g. EV15 (and others) in places split and there are several ways to take the EV (i.e. the left branch or the right branch) - they all meet-up after a bit anyway.

Thank you Ian. All sorted now.
I appreciate your help.

Now I have to work out how to get my bike up to Andermatt on the train without a bike box :/

If you're taking a phone you could also download the OpenAndroMaps for EV15: https://www.openandromaps.org/en/eurovelo-cycle-maps/ev15-rhine-cycleway.

We did this in the summer. Trains to Portsmouth. Overnight ferry. Drove the bikes in a rented car from Le Havre to Mulhouse. Cycled to Basel. Trains up from Basel and stayed overnight in Andermatt, then took the train to Oberalppass the next morning.

PS: We used the GPX routes that come with the Cicerone guide.
