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 Baltic States, Poland, Belarus and Russia. 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, usually between 20 to 40 people.
We would be interested in visiting you on our way. We don't have any exact dates yet but, if possible, would like to stay with you for two to four nights.
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?

Biketour 2016

Please contact projects if you have time right now! Here is a step-by-step guide:

1. Pick a blue marker on the projects' map [was sent by BT-org].

2. See if it has an e-mail address and/or Facebook page entered in the information. If not, try to research it and put it in. Or pick another project that already has the contact details written.

3. Edit the marker and set the status to “Contacted”.

4. Take the call-out template below, modify it if necessary, and send it by e-mail and/or Facebook. It would be preferable if you sent it form 2016@ecotopiabiketour.net. You can use that e-mail address with your favourite e-mail client or by logging in on https://mail.ecotopiabiketour.net/. The username is 2016@ecotopiabiketour.net, the password is [was sent by BT-org]. If you contact them by Facebook, mention that in the “Further details” of the marker. Also if you are contacting projects with gmail accounts, it is probably better to contact them through your personal account as gmail marks emails from ecotopiabiketour.net as a spam by default.

5. If you are not tired yet, proceed with step 1.
