Ecotopía Biketour es una comunidad internacional autogestionada que organiza cada año una ruta en bici en diferentes regiones de Europa desde 1990. Durante la ruta visitamos proyectos sociales y medioambientales y practicamos formas de activismo y vida sostenible. Tenemos una dieta vegana, tomamos las decisiones por consenso y potenciamos el compartir nuestras habilidades. Este es uno de nuestros valores clave para crear un entorno no discriminatorio. Ecotopia Biketour es para todas las personas interesadas en viajar en bicicleta, en vida comunitaria, en autogestión, medioambiente y en aprender desde la propia experiencia.
Lee más sobre lo que es el Ecotopia Biketour.
Este año, el biketour ira desde Escocia hasta Irlanda, y posiblemente tambien pasemos por algo de Wales.
Empezaremos alrededor de mediados de junio en Edimburgo, y terminaremos alrededor de mediados de septiembre.

It was super interesting to join Ecotopia Biketour (EBt) again, after 5 years not taking part and almost have lost contact. I would like to share here some of my thoughts that were eminent during this years tour, my fifth EBt. The first time being in 2008. Joining biketour for the fifth time is not the same as the first experience. The past experiences make that you have memories coming up from other years influencing the feelings, ideas and proposals that you will bring to the group. Luckily some other former EBt friends popped up as well! The year 2018…
From Ourense we had to cycle a long uphill full of suicidal flies to Allaríz, a small but famous and touristic town south of Ourense. The original plan was to do a public workshop day and people’s kitchen in a social centre there. But there had been some miscommunication about the dates, and in the end the day that we were there, no one was there to do any activities with us. But we had a sleeping place organised, a small garden on the edge of the town. The infrastructure was a bit difficult, as the only source for water…
After a long and never-ending downhill, the Biketour arrived in Ourense. A major point on our route-planning map were the hot springs in the city, which we were much looking forward to visit (as we decided to take a route that would not pass by the other nicer hot springs in the Gerês National Park). The original plan was to stay for two full days wild-camping next to the springs, but when we discovered that the springs were in between two motorways and a national road in a steep river valley next to an industrial area, we were very happy…
The water, the lake, the rhythm. Breath in and laugh at the world. Precooked plastic sealed quinoa taboulet. Also other food. Thanks dumpster. The beach, the sun, the wind. Pedal up and keep pedaling up. Pedal up and keep pedaling up. Downhill thrill. But we can’t stay here, go on. Although it was a nice place as many others before. Just a constant humming noise from the factory disturbed the beach-lake-cyclist paradise. And maybe that the natural park contains pine and eucalyptus plantations. And windmills. Us, a threat for their well-being. A cow stands next to the windmill, unable to…
