Cycling Alternatives is a Trans-European bicycle project that combines visiting places and people who put ideas for sustainable solutions to existing social, environmental and economic issues into practice with theoretical workshops by creating mobile cycling seminars.
In 2013 30 people cycled from Berlin to Warsaw to find alternative local solutions to the current crisis of the economic system.
In 2014, three bike tours focused on th the topics of Permaculture, Solidarity Economy and Self-Organisation. At the end of three weeks, all of them joined together in Czech Republic for a 5 day festival to exchange their experiences.
in 2015 the Cycling Alternatives spring tour cycled through Spain and France and visited organic farms where they received food, shelter, warm welcomes and insights into the way of life at those farm in exchange for helping out.
