Route Maps on G$$gle

The route till now is based mostly on google maps and some information got on the web, they will still change when we get access to proper maps and some parts need to be checked in person (mostly the crossing from Gap to Torino).

easy way on getting BIG printable maps with google maps: http://ask.metafilter.com/101435/Print-A3-Google-Maps

Helpful links and maps

there are this maps that yolanda found out: http://www.cyclingeurope.nl/provence http://www.cyclingeurope.nl/riviera

many bicycle routes and tools to plan a bike route (need further investigation): http://www.provelo.org/spip.php?article2627

and there are GPX and GPD (gps standards) files there, this website is useful to visualize them: http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/

The EV8 (EuroVelo Route 8) should be followed and we can make deviations from it to visit some projects and places: informaton on EuroVelo

More possibilities

- Les reencontres Des amis de S!lence (http://amies.revuesilence.net/spip.php?article73) a bit more north from foix, in Loubières, from 9 to 24 july it's a self-managed camp, but besides that there is not much information, they were conected with the Camp Action Climate 2009 in Nantes - sounds great, it was the start of ZAD, but last year information don't look like an active/activist gathering but more a sharing information/workshops - probably 100% in french as it dosen't look like they plan ot make an international call-out

Marseille Water financialisation Youcef's bike workshop, they have plan to host us, we need to link them with other collectives to make a nice action there...


planning - rough maps/distances

* waiting for can masdeu confirmation (it's confirmed 6th to 9th of july)
  * after starting in barcelona we head to visit Ca l'afou - a eco-industrial post-capitalist colony
    * couple of workshops day (in can masdeu or ca l'afou): 
      * rocket stove
      * banners
      * cycling/group safety

ideas to cross the alps

    • We need to count 20/30km per day
    • Near the sea, next to monaco - not so fun, full of tourists and traffic
    • Barcelonnette - at less tan 1400m high seems like the less hard/more fun place to cross
    • Briançon - the one that makes more sense after passing by L'Ecolieu Tilia & Compagni

Group tour which has done this: http://www.adventure-cafe.com/content/Foreignadventure/ForeignAdDetail.asp?aid=1313080422

    • Mont-Cenis, Lanslebourg-Mont-Cenis - a bit high place but it would mean entering italy through vall di susa - needs further invesstigation
would be great if we pass through the vall di susa to understand what the population is defending from destruction...
