Lost in the Swell – Africa trip with an Aevon trailer

14 March 2017 | By | No Comments

Ronan, Ewen and Aurel have decided to go on a trip along the West African coast with their bikes and Aevon trailers STD 100 to find the best surfing spots.

With their fat-bikes and their bike trailers fully loaded, each kilometer is a challenge and the maximum speed is 9km/h. In total, they have cycled for 850km along the African beaches and through the jungle with 210kg material (70kg each) to offer you the pleasure of their web series Lost in the Swell that will make you laugh and plan your next adventure very soon. A bike trip in extreme conditions with one goal : THE wave !

bike trailers Aevon

Their goal : find a spot, a wave that has never been surfed before, for example : “Bambi’s left” :

‘Bambi’s left is located at 5880km from Paris, 500km from Libreville airport and 58km from Mayumba which is the last village at the South of the country. To cross these 58km and reach our first wave, we needed 3 days and 3 nights. And it was hard to reach ! Our camp was located at the end of the bay, just in front of the wave. Many sitatungas (antelopes) came to dring in the lagoon close to our tents. One of them, less shy, seemed used to the cameras. We guess it was retired Bambi and decided to name this wave Bambi’s left.’

The film for their trip ‘Paradise Lost‘ is currently being shot in many French cinemas where you can meet the 3 men :

Off-road trip with our STD 100

7 February 2017 | By | No Comments

Marine and Loïs cycled accross the ‘traversée de l’Hérault’ last summer with their Aevon trailer STD 100.

aevon bike trailer
300km of mountain biking in full nature with 7000m difference in height. Departure : Montpellier. Arrival : La Salvetat-sur-Agout, little village in the South of France, located at 1 087m at its highest.

Our bike trailer helped us carry all our luggage, our tent and camping stove during the trip.
We cycled on little roads, but mainly paths and single tracks.
bike trip
The behaviour of the trailer offroad is very good, thanks to the hitch on the seat post and the shock absorber. The only limits were our legs uphill and our brakes downhill. Wherever the MTB goes, the bike trailer follows and we didn’t spare it anything : hills, flooded passages and technicals slopes.

We could carry 25kg of luggage easily.

The Aevon brand was designed by a mountain biker, he designed it in order to cycle accross difficult passages : aluminium frame, adjustable shock absorber, hitch on the seat post.

Our next purchase for our future trips will be an Aevon specific waterproof bag.

We recommend this trailer to those who are looking for a reliable product.”

This track is maintained by the Hérault department with many B&Bs along the way for cyclists and hikers.

Mexico with my trailer

23 January 2017 | By | No Comments

Bertrand has decided to go on a solo trip with his bike and his Aevon trailer STD 100.

The goal is to cycle from Mexico to Ushuaïa. To start, the road will go along the south coast of the Gulf of Mexico, the bay of Campeche (bahía de Campeche) and through different Sierras : of Villa Alta, of Miahuatlán.

After saving money for a few months Bertand prefers to travel alone, so as to be completely free and enjoy his bike trip the way he likes. First step : choosing the material. Each gram counts so you have to leave with only the essentials. To carry his stuff, Bertrand chose the Aevon trailer STD 100, large enough to carry clothes and bivouac stuff. With its shock absorber, the STD 100 trailer is able to follow the bike on all types of tracks.
bike travelling
Leaving for a bike trip of at least 2 years through countries with different climates requires to take the most technical gear.

First step, the city of Campeche.

After two days of more than 90km with wind, I decide to listen to my body and to rest for a day in Campeche, a beautiful city with a colonial atmosphere. It’s a fortified city from the 17th century. It is designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and essentially lives from petrol and shrimps.

We will follow Bertrand’s adventures in the months to come. Don’t hesitate to check out his blog full of adventure and encounters.

I’m writing from Puerto Escondido, a beer in one hand, with the sound of the waves in the background. The sunset was beautiful, like the body board session I enjoyed this evening. Real holidays begin, chill, beach and surfing…;)

A bike trailer for fat bikes

25 July 2016 | By | No Comments

The Aevon team has developed a longer beam to adapt its trailers to more specific bikes.
Fat bikes with their big tyres and oversize frames, 29″ bikes or city bikes equipped with a rear rack will all be able to ride with an Aevon trailer.

bike trip

By extending the beam, Aevon follows the trend with more and more 29″ bikes and more and more fat bikes on the market. Depending on the height of the rack, some bikes needed to remove the rack in order to adapt an Aevon trailer, this is no longer a problem.

The beam is the system connecting the frame of the trailer to the seat post of the bike. The hitch then links the beam to the seat post. This system is particularly efficient as the bike remains easy to handle in all circumstances. Mountain bikers can still ride on all types of tracks as the trailer will follow them anywhere.
The hitch rotates around the seat post, which makes it possible to make a U-turn, for example if you are riding on a narrow track :

 

Bike travellers choose Aevon brand so they can leave safely with a high quality material. The only remaining difficulty will be to choose between the three Aevon bike trailers, all different : the UNO 100 in steel is perfect for a road use, the STD 100 in aluminium can be used for mountain biking with a shock-absorber, the KIT L80 in aluminium is entirely foldable to follow you on the plane or other means of transport. Whatever your bike trip project, you will find the one that suits you the best.

This summer, rent your bike trailer

21 June 2016 | By | No Comments

You have decided to leave with your friends or family on a bike trip. You will sleep in B&Bs along the way or you will set up camp every night.
 
You have planned to bring the camping stove, your rain pants, the tent and your toothbrush. But how can you carry all this ?
 
Using side bags is a good idea … if you have little to carry. Most bike travelers prefer to use a bike trailer ‘because you don’t feel the weight on the bike’. The bike is still easy to handle and you can still use it anywhere.
 
What if it rains ?
 
The Aevon trailer bags are perfectly waterproof to protect your material whatever the weather.

 
 
I’m not sure about the use of the trailer.
 
To blow away all your doubts, Aevon has set up a rental system of the STD 100 and UNO 100 trailers with a purchase option.

Choose the bike trailer that suits you and get it before your holiday. You can test it in real conditions and check if it fits your bike trip projects. To fill in your rental request, click here.
 
In aluminium or steal, with shock absorber or without, with a load from 35kg to 45kg, from 100 to 145L you have plenty of choice.
 
At the end of your holiday, just choose if you’d like to keep the trailer for your future bike trips.

Tour de France with my Aevon Trailer – 3

21 June 2016 | By | No Comments

Alain takes us on his tour de France by bike with his Aevon trailer.

Eighth day : Avranchesy/Montauban de Bretagne

What a day ! Departure from Avranches at 8.45am, I go on the road to the Mont St Michel, not very good for my bike. But the strong wind and cold rain make me stop on my way.
I stop at Combourg to get a little warmth and arrive at the hotel at about 4.30pm.
Today I cycle for 98km during 7hours.
The day after, it will be hard, as I heard it’s 0 degrees in Rennes.

Ninth day : Montauban de Bretagne/Questambert

Surprise today on the ‘voie verte’. First I cycled the wrong way for 10km (so 20km longer in all) and I find a tree in the middle of the road. I have to stop and remove the trailer from the bike. I have to carry the bike, the bags and the trailer through the branches of this huge tree.
It is a nice day but too cold. At 9am it’s 2 degrees and I’m wearing my gloves.

Tenth day : Questembert/St Michel Chef Chef

It’s a very short trip with a departure at 8am and an arrival at 2pm.
The fields are covered with ice.
I cross the St Nazaire bridge, 60meters above the sea.
I cycle for 84km.

Fourth day : Port en Bessin/Barfleur

Departure with a little rain that turns into a real shower in the afternoon !
Today I cycle through Villerville, Trouville, Deauville, Villers sur mer and its beautiful and hard hill on the thighs. Then I cycle along the landing beaches between St Aubin sur Mer and Port en Bessin.
I spend 6h30 on the bike for 96km with a peak of 56km/h with the Aevon trailer behind me.

Fifth day

It’s a very bad weather. My bike tips over with the trailer and my luggage falls off. The very strong wind follows me all day for 100km.
I cycle along the landing beaches and all these villages full of History. At 5pm I’m glad to reach my hotel room.
Tomorrow I change direction and shouldn’t have the same wind but … you never know !

Mike & Steph’s trip

13 June 2016 | By | No Comments

Michaël and Stéphanie decided to visit 8 Asian countries with their tandem and a bike trailer.

Originally, their project was to travel through New-Zealand. Then to join South America. But some logistical obstacles led the two friends to the Asian countries : ‘Our ambition was financially and logistically very difficult to carry out.’ Their trip will take them from Indonesia to Nepal, through Malaysia, Thailand and Laos. Their trip will begin by plane in Indonesia but they will come back to France on their tandem through Scandinavian and European countries.

Stéphanie was not a fan of cycling, but she found the ‘idea pleasant and brave’. And you might say she’s brave as Stéphanie began cycling actively 2 years ago. For this trip they chose a MTB tandem very strong and easy to handle and and a bike trailer. Originally, their project was to travel through New-Zealand. Then to join South America.

‘We chose an Aevon trailer so we could carry our food, our sleeping stuff and everything needed to survive in the open air.
A few words on our best ally : the STD 100 is essential in a bike trip. It is easy to handleroomy and light and the hitch system on the seat post is very practical.

We also bought the necessary equipment : windbreakers, sleeping bags, a tent, shoes, rain pants, clothes for the cold, etc…’

On their blog, you can follow Mickaël and Stéphanie while they go on training on anticipation of their departure in September. They will share with us the most important moments of their trip.
