      GETTING TO BIKETOUR
      For those starting from the beginning, there will be a
      meeting point in Dover. Some people will cycle the
      whole tour, others only part. It can be chaos when new
      people try to meet biketour each day so please let us
      know places or dates when you will join the tour.

      WHAT
      Celtic Safari is a four-week, non-competitive and
      politically active bicycle tour through England,
      Wales, and Ireland; Bringing young people, and some
      not so young, from all over Europe, and ending at
      Ecotopia-Gathering 2002 [www.ecotopia2002.org] in
      Dingle, Ireland.

      AIMS
      The aim of Celtic Safari Biketour is to promote the
      concept of sustainable transport, social and
      environmental justice, especially to young people.
      Instead of focusing on government and media attention,
      the tour and participants will engage and educate
      individuals, empowering them to make changes in their
      own lives and local communities. The tour is also an
      ecologically friendly, and sustainable, way to get to
      Ecotopia 2002.

      HOW
      En-route, the biketour will link with groups in order
      to present its vision to local communities and allow
      biketour participants to share experiences from their
      cultures and from the projects with which they are
      involved in their home countries. Biketour
      participants will also learn from grassroots groups
      and non-governmental organisations in Britain and
      Ireland.

      WHEN
      July 10th-August 13th, 2002. The route is: Dover,
      Sevenoaks, London, Oxford, Bristol, Hereford,
      Aberystwyth, Machynlleth, Holyhead, Dublin, Wicklow
