On the road to South America
20 December 2017 | By Marieke |
After New-Zealand and Australia, our adventurers : Cyril & Elodie are getting ready for their trip by bike and Aevon trailer in South America.
Before their departure, they are back in their families in Belgium to rest for a while and enjoy some time home. This pause is also the moment to check the material, repair some of it and replace others.
Going on a new continent also means a change in the weather conditions. The weather will certainly be a little different from Australia and they need to get ready for winter temperatures. So they change their tent for a stronger one. Cyril also replaces his sleeping bag for a model adapted to temperatures below 9°C.
They also add some clothes : winter jackets with goose feathers and technical underwear so they can wear several layers.
Their bikes need some replacement parts such as the cassettes and the braking systems, which is easily understandable after thousands of kilometers on all types of roads.
“And we changed the wheel’s bearing of the Aevon Kit L80 bike trailer : even if the trailer was riding fine, a little noise made us think it might be safer to change it.. It’s easy and quick to do ! .”
Here is the video of this operation that only takes a few minutes :
