Thanks to Hilde and her amazing 'badge machine' we were able to procure every participant a personal name badge. Two questions less to be asked (Who are you - Where do you come from) - and more time for the questions that really matter!
Library visits are always enriching, but on a tour like this it's sometimes frustrating that there is not enough time to exchange and talk to the local guests. There is always a next appointment waiting or a timing to be respected!
That's why we invented our 'carte plumes': small cards that were distributed to the participants before or during the library visit. That allowed everyone to write down some personal comments, questions, congratulations for the local library team.
The cards were given to the librarians as a memory of our visit.
An essential part of every tour: after all those kilometres, after all those efforts: a written confirmation that you really participated!
As we are a small country, and because it was only a four-day tour, we decided to prepare a small and handy 'certificate of participation'.
To be distributed on the last evening.
Yukka designed our flyers. We used them to inform the public along the road about our initiative: who are we, why are we doing this.
As almost everything during the preparation process, it proved to be a bit more complicated than usual, because we had to provide flyers in our three national languages.
Visibility is very important, not only for safety reasons but als to make sure that people see us when we pass by.
That's why every participant wears the traditional 'Cycling for libraries safety vest, with the logo of the local tour.
We offer them in two colours: yellow for the participants, and orange for the first and last cyclist and for the road captains.
Questions deserve answers.
That's why we created a FAQ-page with answers to the most common questions.
Handy for us: less questions to be answered by mail.
Handy for you: correct information when you need it.
