Around the world by bike

5 December 2017 | By | No Comments

Amédée prepared his trip around the world by cycling around Portugal this summer, with 3000km, 90km a day depending on the weather.

How did you choose the countries you’re going to visit ?
I chose them depending on the weather. Cold countries are not for me. I will begin with South America and Central America. Then I’d like to visit New-Zealand and meet some friends in Australia. Finally I dream of seeing Auroville in India, it’s a spiritual community that has been created about 50 years ago.

What is your everyday budget ?
About 30€ per day. In France that would be difficult but abroad I will be quite confortable. Usually, I like to have a good meal at noon and at night I just nibble on something before fixing my tent between the trees. For this trip, I sold my house, so I should be able to travel for a year and a half, maybe more.

Why the tent in the trees ?
When you go wild camping, you usually don’t find a nice flat spot. By fixing my tent between 2 trees, I’m sure I will have a good night’s sleep. And I tie my bike underneath.

How did you decide to go on a bike trip ?
Very sporty, I used to run. After an injury, I had to find another activity and began to cycle, especially with my MTB. I thought it might be a nice way to travel. Travelling alone will enable me to meet more people and be totally free with my schedule.

And you have chosen to travel with an Aevon trailer ?
After my trip to Portugal, I even changed my mind and chose the electric trailer ! So I left my KIT L80 to go with the STD 100 équiped with a 1000w motor. For me 90km a day is not enough. I’d like to make 150km a day.
