Patrice arrived in the history of the Sun Trip in 2018. He was then noticed for his state of mind, his smile, his poems and for his decision to turn back along the way. While in Georgia he undertook a return home, always respecting the objective of solar recharging.
A return to better return!
On the Sun Trip Tour 2019, with an improved “home made” bike, he was awarded the jury prize and above all he was on a joint journey with his future adventure companion, Jean-Louis Machado. They will be a shocking duo of Lyon-Canton 2021!
Patrice also participated in the test edition of the Corsica Sun Trip 2019.
Interview during the Sun Trip 2018
With his friend Jean-Louis in 2019 :
“I, who had never traveled apart for work, signed up for the 2018 Lyon-Canton Sun Trip by discovering their website. It was with a bike that I built from A to Z that I started in this crazy adventure. 9 months of preparation during which I met an extraordinary world that is the suntrip and this family of suntripers. Our bikes are passports that open borders but also open the hearts of people of all countries.
Even though the Canton goal was not achieved, it was an incredible journey , surpassing oneself and meeting others, it was more than achieved. Which made me register for STT 2019 by accompanying a friend: Jean Louis Machado with whom we hope to reach the Tibetan plateau and Guangzhou in 2021.
As I had never been to Corsica, I wanted to test it… great experience of crossing the Isle of Beauty in a small group.
In fact, traveling by solar bike means riding more than 100km per day without being exhausted, enjoying the scenery, no longer having the apprehension of climbing a pass and taking the time to meet people, It’s freedom without pollute”.
