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!

The tour will be 3 months long in Scotland, Ireland and Wales. We will start in the end of June in Edinburgh and cycle in Scotland until the mid-August. We will continue in Ireland until the mid-September, ending in Dublin. Then the last part of the tour will happen in Wales until the end of September. Find more information on the route page!
