Ecotopia Biketour 2017 will start on Thursday, June 29 in Strasbourg, France, and will end in the beginning of October in Catalunya (close to Tarragona).
If you are planning to join us in Strasbourg, please, if you can, try to arrive on Thursday rather than another day. In the first days, we are making many decisions about how to organise ourselves during the tour, and it is the best to have as many people there during those days.
Here is a draft of the route. The information is being continuously added. Note that dates can still change!
