Baïcchus Tour – the wine making adventure with an Aevon trailer

17 October 2013 | By |

Mickael has been travelling by bike and Aevon trailer for 7 months now. He continues to write about his adventures on his blog. 

“To pick up where I left off: after a long wait for the sun on the Mont-Blanc and the opening of Col Petit St Bernard, I came back to the Savoy by passing the Col of Saisies in  early June. A freezing and rainy day, I avoided to put the lens of my camera outside. Yet it is the longest stage so far, more than 115 km. Not far from Albertville, I put my bike and my Aevon trailer aside for few days, so I was able to achieve some beautiful climbs on skis.”

“I hit the road on June 20th, in the direction of Bourg Saint Maurice. To avoid heavy traffic in the Tarentaise region, I cross the Beaufortain massif by the Cormet of Roselend, its dam and its pastures. Clouds and raindrops threaten my arrival in Beaufort. There is a certain freshness during the long rise of thirty kilometers and 1600 difference in altitude. The sun makes ​​a few appearances for photos at the dam. But a strong and cool wind quickly rises to the pass, 8 km away. Time to enjoy the col, to chat with a few passersbies intrigued by my bike trailer and I continue my way to the valley Glacier Chapieux and Bourg Saint Maurice.”
“The Col du Petit St Bernard, 2188m. Very ancient route way in Italy and Rhone. A long climb to the stunning scenery and glorious sunshine. Snow is waiting for you at the col, dozens of meters of snow drifts are announced. A legend to attract tourists. As always, the long, slow climb up the col then gives way to an exhilarating descent between 50 and 60 km/h … the STD 100 trailer is on top!”

September: after a long and grueling journey by boat and train (from Dubrovnik, Croatia to Bari, Italy) Michael arrived in Italy for a month of grape harvest.

“It is already night when I finally arrive, exhausted. I find a place to spend the nigth. A Sunday of rest, not too early. In the evening I arrive at the wine-growing estate, Stéfania Pepe greets me with a big smile, I feel immediately at ease. A beautiful view. The Sea in the East, the mountains in the West, hills of olive groves and vineyards in between. Ma che bello!

Almost a month has gone by. Time to pick some grapes, make a lot of “washing up” in the cellar and start off with a little Italian and then I casino have to hit the road by bike and trailer. I leave with a little apprehension, because I know with certainty that it will be more complicated due to fall and winter climate. “
