The Ecotopia Biketour is an eco-mobile do-it-yourself («diy») community. It is for everyone interested in environmentalism, activism, community life and the art of travelling without engines. It is an experience aiming to build up strong connections between participants coming from different cultures and groups, as well as between ourselves and our hosts. Read more on what Ecotopia Biketour is about.
