We where talking about more n studene, but most minutes disappeared. Here you can find results of so called "goal pyramide" activity, when we tried to define, what are goals and aims of the biketour. As already said before, it is just a working information.



We aim to unite people from all over Europe into mobile eco community. Break down barriers and increase cross-cultural communication and understanding. We strive to: • Promote alternative transportation through cycling and actions along the way. • Live in non-hierarchical community using consensus decision making which includes active discussions on themes such as capitalism, globalization, environment, car culture, etc. • In order for everyone to feel comfortable, biketour does not tolerate sexism, racism, fascism, homophobia, xenophobia etc. • We welcome all participants who are open minded, friendly, ecologically-minded, active and engaged.
