Below is a template you can send to projects that still haven't been contacted. Please, specify the time when it's possible for us to visit and your name.
Ecotopia Biketour is a self-organized political bicycle tour that has been cycling through different parts of Europe each summer since 1990. Between June and September 2016, we will cycle through Poland, Belarus and the Baltic States. On our way we will visit self-organized alternative social centres, anti-racist and feminist groups, self-sustainable communities, environmental campaigns and other projects trying to create a better society. We are an always changing group of different ages, nationalities and political backgrounds. This year, our theme will be Trash, so in addition to cycling and visiting projects there will be a special focus on reusing trash, dumpster-diving, and raising awareness, sharing knowledge and making actions about waste.
We would be interested in visiting you on our way and if possible, would like to stay with you for two to four nights. We expect to be around in [insert time...early/mid/end of...].
We will probably be around 20-40 people (about 12-24 tents). We cannot afford and oppose the idea of paying for sleeping (apart from a small donation to cover any costs that we have caused for electricity and water) but are very happy and eager to do some work in return for your hospitality. We also cook three meals a day (we have cooking equipment with us and cook on fire), which you are happily invited to join. Would you be interested in our visit?
Also if you have any idea or suggestion of other projects or places to visit during our tour, we would be interested in hearing about them.
Greetings, [insert your name here] from the Ecotopia Biketour Collective
