Shape the Way Project

4 March 2020 | By | No Comments

Shape the Way is the (slightly crazy) project of Maxime & Arthur : to cycle along the Atlantic coast from the South of Portugal to the North of Scotland with their bikes and Aevon bike trailer.
travel

Maxime has trained as an engineer. Arthur is a landscape creator. They have never really travelled by bike but… it doesn’t really seem to worry them!
bike trip
Their project was born from an observation: our hobbies are not always in agreement with the necessity to protect our environment. To surf, enthusiasts are ready to travel for miles looking for the biggest wave, spending hours in cars or on planes. Maxime & Arthur would like to prove that there are other ways to enjoy yourself.
In order to make their values and their passion coincide, the two travellers plan to travel and surf and respect the environment at the same time. Their trip will exclusively be environmentally friendly using means of transport with low impact such as the bike or the train. They will spend their nights camping or staying at people’s houses along the way.

Their bikes are made of spare parts found in a collaborative workshop that helps you repair your bike yourself.
They have built a surf rack that was added to the frame of the STD 100 bike trailer. The bike trailer will carry their camping gear and cameras.
single wheel bike trailer

Several stops are planned along the way to meet some active members of environmently friendly associations and partners who support the project: sportsmen, businessmen and such. Of course, Aevon’s team will meet them at the halfway point to talk about the first part of the trip.

All along their bike trip, Maxime & Arthur will make a web series and regular podcasts you can listen to on the most famous apps.

The departure will take place at the end of the month!

To support them: go to ULULE.

Why a bike trailer instead of bags?

4 February 2020 | By | No Comments

When you decide to go on a bike trip, you will probably ask yourself this question: better to use a bike trailer or bags?

Aevon users have travelled around the world with their bike trailers and have many positive things to say about the trailer.
bike single wheel trailer

The handling ability

The Aevon single wheel bike trailer is attached on the seat post and set up with a single wheel. So, in turns and downhill, it follows you smoothly everywere, without you feeling any discomfort.. The bike remains easy to handle and light. Elroy, from Canada, confirms that his trailer can almost be forgotten (read his story here).
When you place bags on your bike, it gets heavier and less easy to handle. On a narrow track, you may have to pass through trees and the width of your bike has increased which can make it difficult in some passages. Some Aevon bike trailers are set up with shock absorbers so they can follow you on cross-country roads.

Practical

The bike trailer can easily carry all your stuff, your tent and your sleeping bag. And for your immediate needs such as your camera or your sandwich, you just need to put a separate backpack on top of your luggage or even outside the bag of the trailer. You’ll just need to add a waterproof cover to protect it from the rain and have easy access to it.

The load capacity

An STD 100 bike trailer can carry up to 145L or 45kg of luggage. In which bags could you carry so much weight? Imagine the weight you would feel if your bike weighed 45kg more!
The Aevon trailers’ frames are spacious and can carry everything you need for a trip in full autonomy.
Here is what Katrin, from Germany, was able to carry in her single wheel bike trailer UNO 100: a tent, a sleeping bag, a camping stove, hiking shoes and a few clothes, and she still had some space left (read her story here).
Some people even adapt their bike trailer to carry their surfboard, their paddle, (read more about it online) or even a snowboard (read more about it here).

Split the load

You’re cycling uphill and your bike trip is slowly becoming more and more difficult? Lend your trailer to one of your fellow travellers to share the difficulties. You just need the right hitch on the second bike and maybe a quick realease to place the trailer from one bike to the other in only a few minutes and without tools.
Even better: get 2 Aevon bike trailers to split the load and make the trip more enjoyable for everyone.

For daily trips, planned on large roads and tracks, bags can be really useful. But if you need to carry some load, intend to go on a long trip or plan to ride on narrow tracks, the Aevon single wheel bike trailer is the best idea.

Sun Trip 2020

6 January 2020 | By | No Comments

A new year begins, full of projects. For some of us, it’s already time to prepare for the famous Sun Trip 2020.

sun trip

The Sun Trip is a race by electric bikes only powered by solar pannels. The road goes from Lyon, in France, to Guangzhou, in China along the old silk roads. Each contestant chooses his own route and just needs to pass by the Tibetan plateau for those who’re willing to win the solar challenge.

Each year, some Aevon bike trailers are on the starting line. During the last edition, you met Eymeric and Jack Butler. Jack won the price of the jury thanks to his communication during this amazing bike trip.

This year, we would like to introduce our first adventurer, Yannick :
bike trailer

Yannick is a French engineer who currently works in Lisbon, Portugal. He has good mechanical and technical skills and also speaks Chinese, which might be very useful for the trip.
For this project, he has decided to leave with his recumbent bike Nazca. He will adapt a classical seat post on the frame of the bike, so he can attach the single wheel trailer STD 100 behind his bike.

Aevon bike trailers are a strategic choice for this kind of trip because their aluminium frames enable them to resist the mechanical pressures along the way. The roads are not always negotiable, sometimes there aren’t even roads to speak of. You also need to take into account the weather, the tiredness and the potential mechanical worries.

Yannick’s goal: to get to Guangzhou !

Follow his adventure on Facebook or Instagram !

If you aren’t an official contestant but you’d like to take part in the adventure, find the departure village of the Sun Trip in Lyon from May 28th to May 30th. The departure will be on May 30th.
If you like to cycle, you can cycle with the contestants on the first 100km between Aix-Les-Bains and Albertville on May 31st. The atmosphere is always very special there.

The quick release for the Aevon hitch, what’s the use ?

17 December 2019 | By | No Comments

A few years ago, Aevon developed a quick release for the hitch of their bike trailers.

As a reminder, the distinctive feature of Aevon single wheel trailers is to get fixed to the seat post with a hitch. There are about 20 different hitch sizes to adapt to the majority of seat posts.
To be fixed at the level of the seat post ensures perfect handling ability of the trailer. You feel no movement when you’re going downhill very fast and you can even make a U-turn without putting your feet on the ground.
This system is also what makes the success of these bike trailers. It’s the same principle when you learn to ride a bike and your parents support you below the saddle.

 

In order to gain time, here comes the quick release for the hitch.
It is composed of a pin, a nylon cord and an axis.

bike travel
single-wheel bike trailer

This system helps to remove the beam of the trailer from the hitch quickly, it only takes a few seconds. It’s very useful when you need to remove or attach your trailer to your bike often or if you travel with several people with several bikes so you can transfer the trailer from a bike to another.

 

Many Aevon travellers decide to go on a trip with several people using only one trailer. The STD 100 bike trailer can carry up to 45kg of stuff. This can be enough when you leave for a short trip of only a few days. In that case, travellers can decide to take turns pulling the trailer.

Tip : don’t hesitate to glue the washers on the beam to avoid for them to fall when you remove your trailer from your bike. To tape it, use epoxy glue, after having removed the grease from the beam and the washers.

Travelling by bike in Canada

11 December 2019 | By | No Comments

We’d like to take you on a bike trip, to discover this beautiful country : Canada.
Take your KIT L80 bike trailer on the plane and follow us !

canada trip

The road we chose can be done in about a week if you cycle for 30 to 60km a day so you can enjoy the beautiful landscapes.
During this trip, you will cycle mainly on cycle paths and sometimes use secondary roads with few traffic.

Starting from Québec, take the public transports to the Lac St Jean where you can start your bike trip.
Going around the Lac St-Jean is a wonderful way to start this bike trip. You will use the famous véloroute des bleuets, 256km long. If you have enough time, spend a day at the wild zoo at St Félicien, it’s worth the detour. West from the lake, you will go past a Native American reservation in which you can visit a museum.
Finally, at the South of the lake is a History and archeological center, at Métabetchouane, you can also stop by the Trou de la Fée cave if you feel bold enough for the steep climb.

Cycle down to the Kénogami lake to admire the hills that separate the regions of Saguenay from the Lac St-Jean. This day by bike will be in the middle of nature until you reach the Sables river near Jonquière.

A visit to Chicoutimi city, located at the confluence between the rivers Chicoutoumi and Saguenay, is recommended before going back on the saddle in the direction of the Baie.

If you feel like it, take the shuttle to discover the Saguenay fjord, this unique landscape created for thousands of years by huge glaciers. The shuttle stops at the level of one of the most beautiful villages in Québec : Sainte-Rose-du-Nord, and stops at Tadoussac where you can rest for one night.
From Tadoussac, don’t hesitate to go on a whale trip.

Back on your bike, discover the regional park of Hautes-Gorges of the Malbaie river, 224.9km2, a unique region because of the diversity of flora. You will be amazed by the waterfalls, the highest being 160m high. And maybe you’ll be lucky enough to meet a caribou on the summits.

Go back to Quebec for the end of the trip.

Travelling in a sustainable way

21 November 2019 | By | No Comments

Users of Aevon trailers are travellers. Choosing to travel by bike is a way to choose sustainable tourism.

Today, travelling is very common and the very low prices enable everyone to travel, whether it’s near or far away.

However, travelling to a distant destination requires to take the plane and as everyone knows now, airlines are one of the biggest polluters.

What does it mean : being a sustainable tourist ?

Travelling in a sustainable way means that you need to take into account : the sustainable development, the protection of the environment, the economical and social impact on the local people.

Here are a few tips found by our travellers to become a sustainable tourist.

Travelling by bike

It’s a fact : moving around with the only help of your legs is better for the planet than using a car or a plane.
You just need to add an Aevon trailer to your bike so you’re free to travel where you like inside a country and why not, go for several months in total autonomy.

Travelling by plane

Of course, when you need to go far away, there is no other choice than taking the plane.
In that case, try to choose a direct flight. Making a stopover isn’t environmental friendly.
Once you’re on site, enjoy the places you’re visiting instead of jumping on the next plane to your next destination. If it’s possible, take the bus to go from one place to the next so you can enjoy the landscapes and really discover the country.

Choose the right time

Mass tourism has an impact on the local people.
The best example is Venice : the city suffers from the influx of tourists during the high season. Anyway, you can’t enjoy a place with as much pleasure when it’s crowded with tourists.
For sustainable tourism, choose to leave out of season. The locals won’t be dependent on the seasons.

Choose the place where you stay

Aevon travellers understand that : camping is the most eco friendly to travel.

Here is a picture from Bertrand in Colombia :

bike trailer

If you prefer to have a roof over your head, check out if your hotel has the HQE label (hight environmental quality) or choose to sleep in somebody’s home so you can share the energetic ressources.

Buy local

During your trips, don’t hesitate to buy souvenirs made on site by the locals, ideally in front of your eyes so you’re sure where the object comes from. This has a positive impact on local economy and the object you’ll bring back home will have more value.

Drink in a sustainable way

During his trip from Mexico to Ushuaïa, Bertrand chose the solution of the water filter so he didn’t have to buy water bootles. There are hundreds of different models, don’t hesitate to take the advice from a specialist before making your choice.

In a country with drinkable water, keep your flask or your bottle with you. In a country with non drinkable water and if you don’t have a water filter, buy big sizes bottles instead of small ones.

Do you have other ideas ?

Where can I travel from November to February ?

13 November 2019 | By | No Comments

Winter is slowly settling in at Aevon in France. Temperatures are even dropping to zero in a few days !

Would you like to travel by bike and Aevon bike trailer now, to avoid the crowds ?
What are the best spots to go to from November to February ?

South America

Argentina

Argentina is located in the South hemisphere, which means seasons are reversed. The country is so large that you can find climates completely different from North to South.
Let’s concentrate on the area around Buenos Aires. The hottest month of the year is January with days at 30°degrees. Prefer Spring to visit this part of the country, from September to December. It’s the rainy season from November but usually these quick showers don’t last.

Mexico

The months of October and November are the months to pick to go to Mexico. You’ll avoid the rainy season but also the heat from the arid plateaus in the North. Temperatures are also nice at this period on the seaside.

Australia

From December to January, it’s summer in the South of Australia. Temperatures are perfect to visit the area and enjoy nights in the open. However, you’d better avoid the center of the country, very hot. On the contrary, the North could be particularly rainy then.

Asia

Laos

The dry season lasts from November to March. Temperatures are nice and you don’t feel as much dampness. It’s the ideal time to visit and play the tourist.

Vietnam

There is a difference between the North and the South of the country.
If you’re travelling from November to December, choose the North of the country. Temperatures are cool, especially at night. You’ll avoid the heat and violent rains from July and August.
If you’re travelling from December to February, choose the South of the country. You’ll get a dry and sunny weather, ideal to pedal in the best conditions.

South Europe

Some countries from theSouth of Europe and the Mediterranean bassin enjoy nice weather in Winter : Crete for example. The weather is mild and you’ll avoid the crowds of tourists.

Travelling with your dog

22 October 2019 | By | No Comments

Katrin always travels with her dog Napoli. She shares her travelling experience with a bike and trailer.

When Katrin first tested her UNO 100 trailer, she used it to carry her luggage. For her, it was the ideal solution to travel through the Alps with a tent and stuff. And when you’re staying in the same place for a few days, you just release the trailer from your bike and go for a ride.

Katrin chose the UNO 100 instead of the STD 100 because the frame of the UNO 100 was lower and her dog Napoli could easily climb inside by himself. The UNO 100 isn’t equipped with a shock absorber so Katrin used a thick mattress for Napoli to sit or lie on it.
On bumpy roads, Napoli still tends to sit instead of lying.

 

“I was very excited to try the trailer. Checking the world wide web for the combination „dog“ and „single-wheel trailer“, I couldn‘t find any comprehensive information about the pro and cons. The videos I saw did either show a dog, that was fixed tightly in his trailer or a much lightweight version of my 20 kg friend.

The UNO 100 is not originally designed to carry a dog but it does the job perfectly. Just be careful when your dog moves around, it might be a little unconfortable when you’re cycling fast. You need to get used to your passenger’s movements.

On Instagram, Katrin found this beautiful picture of Frida, riding in an Aevon STD 100. The owner chose a container to protect him when he is braking. It also protects the dog from the sun and the rain.
