+ Why are we touring by bicycle? +

  1. Because it will be a crazy awesome adventure.
  2. We want to influence by example: if we can travel hundreds of km from one place to the next hauling loads of gear, surely you can manage to ride your bike to go grocery shopping a few km down the road!
  3. The revolution will be pedal powered.

Degrowth Conference in Venice

There is a big Degrowth conference from 19th-23rd September 2012, Research and Degrowth here in Barcelona are involved with organising this and it has been proposed that this is the final destination of the tour. We aim to find a camp outside of town to unite us rather than scattering through the city. We would link with the conference with some kind of action and negotiate free entry for BT participants for part of the conference.

Here is the latest conference information available in english.
