We try to make the tour as inclusive as possible for any level of fitness or experience with bike touring. We cycle a maximum of 30–70 km per day (depending on the hills), and on average half of the days we stay in a place without cycling. Our experience is that almost everyone can manage this, but there is the possibility to shorten the distances if we discover that it is too much. People cycle in small groups or alone, at whatever speed suits them, and many people like to take it slow and take lots of breaks. A detailed route plan for the day is shared in the morning, arrows are drawn with chalk on the road at every turn, and if you get lost you can always call the Biketour phone. If you have a shitty bike, you will not be the only one, and we enjoy supporting each other if something breaks. We make sure that the last people to leave carry a toolbox, a phone and a first-aid kit in order to assist if anything goes wrong on the road.
Ecotopia Biketour 2021
In the year 2021 we will be cycling for 2½ months in Czech republic, Austria, Slovenia and Croatia. We will start on the 9th of July in Prague with one-week of preparation camp and cycle south towards Linz to join the bike festival Cyclocamp (July 30 – August 8), then going east crisscrossing Danube towards Vienna. We will then continue south admiring the Alps, visiting Graz, Ljubljana, pass by Zagreb, eventually navigate westwards and cycle to the Adriatic for a final swim.
