Eco Tour Map Making Meetup

Don’t just see the world. Make it better.

Planet Earth is an amazing place, but it’s far from perfect. Since the very beginning, ecocycling has operated under the belief that travel is an exchange, not a commodity. When you travel with us, you’re giving back as much – if not more – than what you take away, often in ways you’d never expect. Lets meetup Saturday Dec 10th around 10 am EST and take a walk together! We will be going “live” together on Facebook.com /ecocyclingorg since we like to explore and have scavenger hunts along the way, you can start by clicking the graphic below for directions and remember to bring your smart phone so we can #improvethemap take photos and make memories together!
