Every biketour has a kick start with a wintermeeting, this year, mainly because already from last year wintermeeting there was already a good planing start for this biketour (and EVS process), the meeting is quite late, and the two EVS bolunteers (alice and taborda) are already in barcelona and the route is already thought. Still this meeting is very important, as we will have time to make define stretagies, objectives and future of biketour and how to accomplish making this biketour a good, and participated, tour.

The wintermeeting will be held in Can Decreix (article about it in catalan) in Cerbère near the catalonia/france border. We have done different working lately see photos here

It's a space that is still to be developed, where it is possible to live carfree in the countryside, it is a place to experiment ecological lifestyle, have time to think and organise activist events. It could potentially become a staging for friends of the ecotopia biketour, with possibilities to develop a bike workshop, aside activities around alternative energies and agroecology.

Connected to the Degrowth movement and easy to get to (many trains from everywhere) it can also help to start making connections with french groups and activists.
