Hello Tour De Coop 2014 Organizers and Coopsters!

This is a special hidden page on the website just for organizers and/or coop owners to share information and list events and meetings for the event.  Please only share this link to other Tour Coopsters or organizers.

Welcome to the event organizers and coopster  page to help manage the coop tour planning chaos!

The coop tour has no particular goals, and metrics to be measured by but simply a collaborative effort and energies of many to put together a fun, bike ride looking at coops and gardens!

Let’s get started!

Google shared Documents – To efficiently manage lists of coops and organizers and marketing outreach, two documents have been created and can be edit by anyone with links to the documents.

To help create and manage the email lists for both coopsters, organizers and event day tourists, I have created TWO eventbrite ticket registrations.

(1) The first eventbright ticket registration is for coopsters and organizers.  We will use this list to send emails to those interested in submitting their coops for the tour or wishing to help organize.  People registering for this ticket will get weekly planning and organizing emails.

To register for this coopster/volunteer ticket – click here

(2) The second eventbrite ticket registration is for those wishing to participate in the event coop tours.  Registering for this ticket will send you map and event information before the event.

Coop Tour 2014 Coops Menu page –

Each coop on the tour will their own webpage.  This Coops page is only available to those registered for the tour and only viewable close to the event.  This website page is a collection of all coops pages arranged by city.  Coops on this page does not necessarily indicated the coop will be on the tour since there are logistical reasons why certainly coops can’t be on the tour once routes are put together.

Coop Tour Maps!


Google Map of Coops for planning coop tours 2014 –  This google base is the map we will use for planning route purposes.  It is not meant to be shared outside of the planning/volunteering committees.

Ride With GPS maps

To create the individual coop tour loops/routes, turn sheets, we are using an on-line mapping tool called RideWithGPS.  For those volunteers on the route mapping committee will have account login information to add, edit and create routes.
