From Scotland to Lille : the movie
29 January 2018 | By Marieke |
Elisa & Valentin share with us their adventures by bike and Aevon trailer. From Scotland to England, from Holland to the North of France, they tested the transport of their trailer by plane, by train and even by ferry :
Their trip enabled them to test their material in all weather conditions as rain was falling in Scotland but most of all in Holland.
For this kind of trip, especially on the road, they recommend to use the UNO 100 trailer. It helped them to carry their stuff but also to start a conversation with people. Some of them allowed the couple to camp in their gardens. Their trailer was a real curiosity.
They found Scottish landscapes beautiful but it was hard to live with the ‘midges’, which were particularly greedy at night.
Elisa & Valentin are athletic but they rarely use their bikes. However they quickly cycled for miles at a time. Downhill they reached up to 70km/h with the trailer.
Their trip made them take the plane, the train and then the ferry, attesting that the trailer can follow you anywhere.
The UNO 100 is dedicated to a use on passable roads because it’s made of steel and isn’t equipped with a shock absorber. For your trips on hard tracks, prefer a trailer made of aluminium and equipped with a shock absorber such as the STD 100 or the KIT L80. The KIT L80 is handy for plane trips as it’s entirely foldable.
