The Trash Traveler gave old second hand bicycle parts a new life and created “Rosa” with which he went on a 2370 km long “Volta de Portugal” within 55 days.
Cascais – Sagres – Vila Real Santo Antonio – N2 – Serra de Estrela – Chaves – Caminha – Porto – Nazare – Cascais
All with just a refillable water bottle and without a break day. 4599 bottles and cans were collected along the roads which were put on the ground in front of Torre de Belem as a final and will continue to raise awareness as art installations along the coast of Portugal.
