In Pablo’s footsteps (Colombia)

17 October 2017 | By | No Comments

Bertrand is in Colombia after 2 days by boat from Panama. With his bike and STD 100 trailer he tells us his first feelings about the country.

bike trip

The first days in Colombia are beautiful. I cycle in little valleys, green pastures, with small palm trees. The roads are easier to ride too, with trees along the way, so I get a little shade. There are little huts everywhere, people smiling, music in all the huts, fruit sellers all the way… There is a beautiful energy…

Bertrand spends his first night at the fire station : the fire station only has one pick up, a hut with a kitchen and lavatories. They welcome all the kids from the neighbourhood.

On the first day, Bertrand meets Oscar, a baker on a motorbike who offers him some bread and some religious advice.
On the second day, he meets Juan from Bogota. He’s also by bike for one month and he travels to Medellin so they decide to cycle together. This is the beginning of the Columbian mountains.

The road runs along one of the main rivers of the country, the Rio Causa.”It weaves, goes up and down with the river and is lined with little green valleys where cows and horses graze peacefully… This road is so beautiful, I feel very lucky to enjoy it by bike…”

At Medellin, Bertrand is greeted by many of the locals and the last 40km are very slow as everyone wants to offer him a drink. Here, Bertrand will stay for a few weeks to catch up with his family coming from France. He will spend some time retracing Pablo Escobar’s footsteps.

To be continued…

From Panama with my Aevon trailer

6 October 2017 | By | No Comments

Here is the next episode of Bertrand’s adventures with his bike and STD 100 trailer in Panama.

For his first night in Tolé, Panama, no firehouse and no Red Cross for Bertrand to stay so he chose the option : ‘church’. The house of the priest is a kind of camp where you can also find a school, a canteen and a few buildings. Bertrand shares his dormitory with three other people. These people haven’t got the means for a place to stay and some of them are stick. That night, Bertrand slept with a father and his son :

The father had an hernia operation a month ago. They still haven’t got back hom because Tolé is only 1 hour from the hospital whereas their house is much farther. The father isn’t well. I’m not a doctor but his situation is painful to see. His son is there to support and help him with everything : to get up, go the bathroom, eat… He spends all his time in bed. This father really loved me.

In Panama, like many countries, there is no social security.

Bertrand puts his alarm clock at 5.45am each morning to get on his bike as soon as possible. So for his first morning in Panama, he was running 1h late… due to the time difference.

After a few kilometers, he met Cyril, a French guy from the South of France, who’s been travelling by bike for 2 years and has cycled for 50000km. On this road, he meets many other bike travellers, one of which is Marc, an English guy who’s going from Ushuaïa to Alaska.

voyage à vélo

The first two days by bike are hard with a temperature of 40°C and dense traffice near Panama City. The outskirts of big cities are always complicated by bike, whatever the country.

In Panama City, Bertrand is currently looking for a boat to go from Panama to Colombia. We’ll find him soon in South America.

My bike trailer is amazing. Easy to ride, very steady when going downhill at full speed. My stuff is easy to load and stays dry thanks to the waterproof bag. It goes anywhere and people are surprised. The shock absorber‘s pressure is adjustable to any types of roads, it’s really useful.’

‘Retrouvailles’, New Zealand : from Timaru to Omarama

30 January 2017 | By | No Comments

Cyril and Elodie’s bike trip has started in New Zealand on the banks of the Timaru and Omarama lakes.

remorque à vélo

Their first encounters with the people were very pleasant because “the Kiwis are extraordinarily kind, welcoming, easy and patient.” To spend as much time with the New Zealanders as possible Cyril and Elodie have chosen to stay at the locals’ homes thanks to the websites Couchsurfing and Warmshowers. When they can’t find a place to stay they’ll go camping.

For the beginning of the trip the roads are quite easy to cycle, there are lots of cycle paths and the others users are patient and careful.

The first kilometers enabled us to test the material, make some adjustments, recover from the flight and the jetlag.” In 5 days, the couple has cycled for 220km.

The concept of city centre doesn’t really exist. It seems the English tried to establish this way of living but it didn’t work. Usually there is one main street lined with a few shops in the middle of the city, the houses are set around this main street and the farms are at the entrance and exit of the city. You won’t find a central area with restaurants and bars like in Europe !

After stopping at Fairlie, Cyril and Elodie took the road to the lakes through the State Highway 8. Steep roads and a strong wind forced them to reduce their speed until Lake Tepako 710m high.

voyage à vélo

Then the pair reached one of the most famous bike trails in New Zealand : the ‘Alps 2 Oceans Bike Trail’ to reach lake Pukaki, the biggest lake in New Zealand with Mount Cook (3754m high) in the background.

On the way to Omarama. To reach this village we were quite lucky : wind in our backs, a slight slope, we can cycle up to 30km/h easily, it lifts our spirits up.

bike trailer

After 480km and a hill of 1750m, the pair is quite enthusiast about the KIT L80 bike trailer :

All our stuff is easily carried in our AEVON bike trailer which follows us everywhere ! It’s really handy and completely waterproof ! Our total load was quite heavy and when we’re going downhill it doesn’t waver (up until 71km/h). The fact the trailer is suspended (with a shock absorber) is very handy as you can climb any type of obstacle without any damage to the rim or tyre. We are happy with our choice and recommend it to other bikpackers like us.
The photovoltaic panel was a brilliant idea, our GPS and phones’ batteries are always full. That’s exactly what we needed !

We will follow Cyril and Elodie along their trip, don’t hesitate to read their blog.

aevon trailers
Enrique chose Ibiza for a short trip of 4x days with a few friends and his Aevon trailer this summer.

With an average of 60km per day and 1500m of hills, the trip was quite intense.

The STD 100 enables to carry up to 45kg of luggage on roads and 35kg on tracks. Fixed to your seat post, it follows you everywhere, on the road but also on challenging tracks.

“I cycled downhill at 69 km/h and it”s incredibly stable. Also in the toughest tracks, the others from the group were jealous of my trailer.

The funniest thing was one of my friends was carrying with him a Spanish guitar of 12 kg!! ”

Enrique already cycled through America with his STD 100 and intends to go on traveling by bike, so he is free to stop anywhere on his way.

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.”

Vallée de Valsarenche


“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!”

Kilometers travelled: 4983

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. “
