EBT 2021 Organisation on the Way

Yes, we have started planning the 2021 Ecotopia Biketour. At this moment we can’t say how vagabond-friendly this summer will be but let’s hope we can push the pedals together again! At this stage we are planning a winter meeting in March in norther Italy or Switzerland and we want everybody who is eager to organise it to be able to join it either physically or virtually. Since the current pandemic situation is going against the possibility to meet easily all together in one place we are considering also a hybrid kind of a meeting where people could meet locally…

Tour to Magari

Hello riders, A few of us are embarking on a decentralized bike tour in France this summer! We will be meeting in Creuse on July 27th and explore some of the nearby regions (Creuse, Auvergne). The main part of the tour will last until the end of August. We are in the process of forming a group to start (or join) an intentional community, so this trip will be a way to look for places and opportunities and also to spend a lot of time together to discuss our common vision. This is not a replacement for Ecotopia but many…

Ecotopia Bike-Quarantine-tour(s)

Slowly the humanity is being allowed little by little to sniff around again outside their caves. As if spring was blossoming outside, neighbors are getting awaken from a long nap and sticking out their necks through the door frames for the first time in a while. Whoah! Things we were watching behind windows are actually tangible. Grass is wet, earth is cold, flowers smell. Tiny kids are crazily invading parks, running around trees and thanking their luck to be not any more in front of the screens. Elders can promenade again, sitting on benches to take their precious sunbathing and…

Spring meeting 2014 in Thessaloniki: Kick start to Biketour 2014 planning

The Biketour Spring meeting took place from 13 to 16 March in Thessaloniki. We were hosted in a social center called Scholeio (http://sxoleio12.wordpress.com/), a former school which was squatted after being closed. The contacts to this place had been established by some people from biketour 2013 who continued from our endpoint in Cluj all the way to Thessaloniki. They held a presentation about ecotopia biketour there past November, so we were already known and quickly welcomed to hold the spring meeting in this lively place. Some biketour feeling came up with collective cooking of delicious, vegan, predominantly organic, meals that…
