Plan your next bike trip

3 April 2020 | By | No Comments

During this lockdown period, many of us question our daily habits because we have plenty of time to do so. Maybe you question the way you usually travel, maybe you plan your next bike trip in order to think about something else.

Travelling by bike is cheap

The lockdown has forced many companies to send their employees home, which means a slight loss of salary for some. Many businesses see their turnover tumbling down.
Travelling by bike means you don’t have to pay for a train ticket, a plane ticket or fuel. It also helps to enjoy each pleace you’ll cycle through and take the time to admire the view at a slow pace.

Think positive

During long winter days, we know that planning our next summer trip helps to stay strong and healthy because of the anticipation. The lockdown can be a little worrying so what could be better than planning your next bike trip to take your mind off things? Thinking about something positive can only be good for you.

Support businesses

Our businesses, restaurants, accomodation, will be deeply affected. The only way to support them is to give them work as soon as possible. Travelling by bike means you’ll save up on travelling fees, which means you can enjoy a nice meal or a good night’s sleep in a hotel or a nice B&B. And you might need it after travelling miles by bike.

Environment friendly

When the whole world seems to have stopped, no cars are crowding our streets anymore and industries just tick over, we have noticed birds coming back in our trees and a better air quality. Travelling by bike will help to extend these effects by reducing greenhouse gas.

Until April 15th, we would like to support your next bike trip by offering you a discount of 25% on the purchase of a UNO 100 bike trailer.

Why a bike trailer instead of bags?

4 February 2020 | By | No Comments

When you decide to go on a bike trip, you will probably ask yourself this question: better to use a bike trailer or bags?

Aevon users have travelled around the world with their bike trailers and have many positive things to say about the trailer.

The handling ability

The Aevon single wheel bike trailer is attached on the seat post and set up with a single wheel. So, in turns and downhill, it follows you smoothly everywere, without you feeling any discomfort.. The bike remains easy to handle and light. Elroy, from Canada, confirms that his trailer can almost be forgotten (read his story here).
When you place bags on your bike, it gets heavier and less easy to handle. On a narrow track, you may have to pass through trees and the width of your bike has increased which can make it difficult in some passages. Some Aevon bike trailers are set up with shock absorbers so they can follow you on cross-country roads.

Practical

The bike trailer can easily carry all your stuff, your tent and your sleeping bag. And for your immediate needs such as your camera or your sandwich, you just need to put a separate backpack on top of your luggage or even outside the bag of the trailer. You’ll just need to add a waterproof cover to protect it from the rain and have easy access to it.

The load capacity

An STD 100 bike trailer can carry up to 145L or 45kg of luggage. In which bags could you carry so much weight? Imagine the weight you would feel if your bike weighed 45kg more!
The Aevon trailers’ frames are spacious and can carry everything you need for a trip in full autonomy.
Here is what Katrin, from Germany, was able to carry in her single wheel bike trailer UNO 100: a tent, a sleeping bag, a camping stove, hiking shoes and a few clothes, and she still had some space left (read her story here).
Some people even adapt their bike trailer to carry their surfboard, their paddle, (read more about it online) or even a snowboard (read more about it here).

Split the load

You’re cycling uphill and your bike trip is slowly becoming more and more difficult? Lend your trailer to one of your fellow travellers to share the difficulties. You just need the right hitch on the second bike and maybe a quick realease to place the trailer from one bike to the other in only a few minutes and without tools.
Even better: get 2 Aevon bike trailers to split the load and make the trip more enjoyable for everyone.

For daily trips, planned on large roads and tracks, bags can be really useful. But if you need to carry some load, intend to go on a long trip or plan to ride on narrow tracks, the Aevon single wheel bike trailer is the best idea.
