Information about 2020 will be added soon!
Ecotopia Biketour ist eine selbstorganisierte internationale Community, die seit 1990 eine jährliche Fahrradtour durch Europa organisiert. Auf der Tour werden soziale und ökologische Projekte besucht und verschiedene Arten von Aktivismus und nachhaltigem Zusammenleben praktiziert. Wir ernähren uns vegan, treffen Entscheidungen per Konsens und versuchen, unser Wissen zu teilen. Es ist einer unserer zentralen Werte, ein diskriminierungsfreies Umfeld zu schaffen. Die Biketour ist für alle, die am Fahrradfahren, gemeinschaftlichen Zusammenleben, Selbstorganisation, Nachhaltigkeit und praktischen Lernen interessiert sind.

Come and meet the Ecotopia Biketour collective! We will announce where we are going to cycle in 2020, show some photos and tell something about the history of the bike tour and try to answer your questions. There will be something to eat and you can talk with different people who did the tour.
At the end of August 2018 I built a Tall Bike and cycled it 250km from Copenhagen to Växjö, to start my studies. Here’s a spoken word-esque account. Bike touring by yourself on a tall bike (with no spare parts and minimal tools) is two things: 1. Astoundingly beautiful. 2. Existentially terrifying. I saw the tops of trees flickering copper, gold and crimson silver in the sun and happened upon a goth’s picnic on some forest roadside. They looked embarrassed for me, having heard me singing moments before. There was tarmac melted into long cracks in the road…
