Description:

 At the heart of The Otesha Project you’ll find a two-wheeled revolution. Every summer teams of volunteers pedal across the UK stopping at schools, youth clubs, festivals and community events to inspire individuals to take creative and positive action towards a more sustainable future. Tour members receive plenty of training and get skilled up on everything from consensus decision making to bike maintenance.

So – What’s it like to be on tour?

Tour members will be part of a mobile community of around 15 people who share roles such as meal planning, cooking, meeting facilitation, record keeping, presenting workshops, equipment maintenance, the planning of wild and fun group activities, and all importantly being inspired and inspiring others to live more sustainably! Western Quest also involves performances of Otesha’s Morning Choices play.

With Western Quest you’ll whiz around the west on your bicycle this summer. Starting in south Wales, this tour will pedal a wee way north into England and then back south through the rolling hills of Somerset and Devon before meeting the pirates of Penzance.
