welcome to biketour ... work in progress ... everything is still very improvised ... |
for more actual information & registration find the new version of our website on http://biketour.kicks-ass.net/ or have a look on our wiki.
Ecotopia Biketour is a 6 week project for everyone interested in do-it-yourself "diy" environmentalism,
culture, nature, community life, cycling and generally being cool this
summer - just the opposite of the all-inclusive flight to the beach. We
will not offer any beaches, blue water, entertainers or cocktail-nights
at the hotel bar, but go for the pure basic form of travelling: sleeping
on the ground, eating food prepared on camp fires and meeting people,
who are not paid a lot to be friendly to you. Moving all our stuff by
sheer muscle power, we will create an eco-mobile community building up
strong connections between participants coming from different scenes and
groups as well as between them and our hosts. While the whole tour is an
action demonstrating that less is more, we will have actions on specific
themes suggested by the places we visit.
Summer 2005 is still a while, but the organisation for the coming biketour is already underway!
We will start a beautiful journey in Banja Luka in Bosnia and cycle through Serbia and Rumania to Moldova, where will be Ecotopia.
We are still looking for Rumanian and Moldovian organisers! If you want to help organising biketour 2005
in those countries, please contact us as soon as possible.
