Which website to prepare for your bike trip?

28 July 2020 | By | No Comments

Some of you plan to go on a bike trip this summer, along with your Aevon single-wheel bike trailer.

Traditional navigation apps such as Google Maps do not enable us to always find walking and cycling paths without crossing busy roads in France and Europe.
To help you go safely on a bike trip, we found a few websites to take as many cycle paths as possible. You will also find ideas for your next bike trip or stories of other bike travellers to get away for a few minutes.

France Vélo Tourisme

bike travel
This website enables you to go from one place to the next using as many cycling and walking paths as you can. On the homepage, you just need to click on ‘carte des itinéraires’ and then on ‘mon GPS’. Then choose the departure and destination. On the map you will find two possible routes, one of which uses mainly cycling paths.
The only failing is that the type of path is not specified. You may find yourself on dirt tracks sometimes.

The duration of the trips are quite long. They take into account a slow pedalling rythm. If you’re a sportsperson, make the calculations with the kilometers to get a better idea.

You can also use an already established route through ‘les itinéraires’ and select them depending on several criteria, one of which being the difficulty. This might be useful if you’re travelling with the kids.

Vélo en France (and in Europe)

This website is the official website of the French cycle touring federation. It helps to find very specific routes. You can enter the type of bike you use and get an overview of the accessibility of the trip, its difficulty. You can also know whether the route is long or sloping.
bike trip
This website is mostly for athletic cyclists and tells you about routes in France and in Europe: Spain, Italy, Belgium, Ireland, etc…

Eurovelo, the European website (available in English)

ebike
Find out about cross-border routes available in more than 30 countries. The map shows you roads created by professionals of the bike and tourism industry in Europe. You can see the map in PDF with a short description available in 4 different languages.
If you haven’t planned to go on a bike trip immediately, just browse on the website to give you a few ideas for the future trips.

Global biker, a blog

single wheel bike trailer
This blog gathers stories of people gone on a bike trip essentially in France, but also in Europe and the rest of the world. These are not precise routes but personal experiences. You will have to select the supplied information and you can search by places in the search bar.
The stories being personal, they have been checked out so you need to be careful with the info. This kind of website can really give you the craving for a bike trip.

Unfortunately, there are no apps for these websites.

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.

From Sweden to Finland

16 October 2019 | By | No Comments

This summer, Nicolas went on a bike trip to Sweden and Finland with his MTB and KIT L80 bike trailer. We followed him on his way.

In the direction of Stockholm, the tracks were not always passable with a MTB, our cyclist essentially cycled on roads.

This single track of a few miles deserved a picture :

Upon his arrival in the Swedish capital, Nicolas noticed a parking area on an island close to the old part of the town. Clean and quiet, there was a nice watering place and a lawn. After visiting Stockholm for a day, Nicolas took the ferry in the direction of Finland.

At this point, he had cycled for 11 days in Sweden with an amazing variety of landscapes : forest, hills, lakes and the Baltic coast.

At 10pm on the ferry leaving Sweden, Nicolas caught sight of this beautiful sunset :

The road to Finland started under the rain. “The first miles to get out of town are very nice, with a track along a river and a first place to stay for the night along a lake with many birds set up on small islands.”

He then cycled in the direction of the city of Tampere at 170km further North.
There are no hills, only forests, fiels and racing stables.”

Nicolas tried to follow the ‘hiking’ route registered on his app and stumbled upon areas where the trees were being cut. It was hard to find a way by bike with the boughs on the ground and the ruts made by the vehicles.
Tired, the cyclist set up camp on a small patch of land with access to a lake.

The day after, he ended up his trip at Tampere and stopped along the lake Näsijärvi. It was the perfect time to use his kayak again.

This first part of the trip in Finland wasn’t that interesting. Examining the rest of the itinerary, Nicolas found that the only way to cross the lake region was by the road.
So he decided to take the train to reach the East of the country.
