Things often get left behind and often get mixed up with (particularly kitchen) equipment of the projects. One important tip when acquiring communal equipment is to '''choose items that have an exceptional design'''. Experience shows that even the most useless things don't get lost for months if their look is easy to recognise, but even the most essential things get left behind when no one is sure if they are ours or belong to the project.

Latest revision as of 20:55, 11 June 2019

Here we keep a record of the collective equipment needed/thought/available for each Biketour.

If you want to know what you should bring generally see here -> participant equipment recomendation or in the FAQs on www.ecotopiabiketour.net

Things often get left behind and often get mixed up with (particularly kitchen) equipment of the projects. One important tip when acquiring communal equipment is to choose items that have an exceptional design. Experience shows that even the most useless things don't get lost for months if their look is easy to recognise, but even the most essential things get left behind when no one is sure if they are ours or belong to the project.

Permanent equipment

Equipment that does not get used up and that we keep over the years.
