One of the tools of the biketour to create awareness on environmental and social issues is through media, as a group of cycling internationals has the ability to attract attention! So we often give interviews, make performances or join actions to point out relevant issues. If you are a journalist looking to contact us, please email info[at]ecotopiabiketour.net.
