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 edition ended. We want to thank to all the participants of this year and people/projects who supported us by hosting us, sharing their food and shelter, presented their projects, gave us useful advices, and so on.
We are going to have a physical winter meeting from 27th to 30th of December in Lyon, in Grrrnd Zero. We will discuss the next year's Biketour, exchange feedback from this year, continue to work on the awareness team procedure and talk about other things that come up. You are very welcome to join us! If you want to, it would be nice to tell us in advance, so that we know how many people to expect. Also if you want, there is an option to stay longer to do some practical stuff and chill together, either in Roybon or in Rocalet. Same here, please tell us about your plans. It might be useful to bring a warm sleeping bag. Also there is an option to refund your travel costs in a reasonable amount.
