  • Seeing Europe during the Covid years by bicycle

    Saturday, 22 October 2022, 16:30h

    For the year 2020, the plan was to do a bicycle tour and wild camp each month. Then the Covid restrictions came. This surprisingly led to touring a large number of European countries without tourists while carefully keeping distance and finding secluded camp spots. Imagine Prague, Salzburg, Amsterdam, without people! Mission accomplished, Andy Ganner set out to do the same again in 2021. His talk and slide-show take you around Europe without tourism and an ingenious way of doing so without flouting the plethora of restrictions that were in place.
