Ecotopia Biketour is a self-organized, international community that has been organizing a yearly bicycle tour in different regions of Europe since 1990. During the tour we visit environmental and social projects and practice forms of activism and sustainable living. We cook communal vegan food, practice consensus decision making, and share skills by doing workshops. One of our core values is to create a non-discriminatory environment. Ecotopia Biketour is for anyone interested in travelling by bike, community life, DIY, an ecological lifestyle, and/or learning by experience. If this sounds good to you, feel welcome to join us!

This year the tour will follow a route through Scotland and Ireland, with the option to ride on to Wales. It will start in Edinburgh around mid June and might last until the beginning of September. (Nevermind the beautiful poster here on the right ^^)
If you are planning to join you can follow the informations on this web page. Also if you would like to help or just to get an insight into the organisation write us via the contact form.

We cooked lunch in church kitchen where we had the luxury of eating out of plates and in the evening we were invited for rakija and meze (a range of cold snacks served with rakija) at a local’s house.
