Vincent and Sarah, two doctors, decided to go to Istanbul by bike and trailer for their honeymoon (July 2015).
To fulfill their project of a journey by bike, Vincent and Sarah bought a trailer AEVON STD 100 to help them carry all their stuff.
This bike trailer’s bag is waterproof, which is essential for a bike trip.
Here are some extracts from Sarah’s logbook :
“Day 7 : from Saint-Jean de Losne to Besançon : 105 km. We went through the Doubs’ valley and reached Switzerland’s border faster than expected.
Day 12 : from Lörrach to Stühlingen : 105 km. We didn’t really intended to cycle for so many kilometers, but there is only a camping every 50km and we didn’t want to sleep under the stars so we had to cycle.
Day 19 : from Ingoldstadt to Bad Abbach : 70 km. The sun is back and the road is more and more beautiful !
Day 25 : from Schönbühel to Klosterneuburg, 10 km before Vienna : 98 km. This is it ! We reached our first goal : join a capital ! After facing the wind which slowed us, we arrived exhausted in the capital of Austria.
Day 30 : from Komaron to Budapest : 126 km. We broke the record !! !We speeded up because we wanted to arrive fast at this third capital, final destination of many bike travellers we met. […] Day 36 : from Kopacevo to Ilok: 85 km. Second and last day in Croatia, and we already regret leaving this welcoming country. All the people we met are extremely kind…
Day 37 : from Ilok to Surduk : 97 km. It’s the beginning of problems. Probably because of the rain… 3 bike falls, 1 broken rack, only 7 km in 2 hours, and all of this under the rain and thunder. Fortunately for us, anything can switch off our good mood, and we create a motto : « sing and keep smiling even if you meet difficulties »
Day 43 : from Brza to Simeonovo : 106 km. We broke the speed record with 62km/h, we travelled for more than 3000 km (3024 km exactly).
Day 51 : from Biser to Edirne : 76 km. […] Almost 3x months, 3634 km, a lot of love, and a big adventure.
