Ecotopia Biketour is a self-organized environmental and social activist bicycle tour that has been cycling through different parts of Europe each summer since 1990. On our way we visit social and environmental projects and groups, to learn about their struggles and visions, to exchange knowledge, to create connections and to support them by participating in actions or doing some physical work. Read more about what the Ecotopia Biketour is.
Ecotopia Biketour 2017 will start on Thu, June 29 in Strasbourg, France and end almost 3 months later in Catalunya, probably in/near Barcelona. Read more details about Biketour 2017, our call out for projects to visit, a detailed route plan, and how to get involved.
Registrations for the tour are open!
