A Few Words from the Adventurer…
After several years of metro-work-sleep in Paris, I subscribed to the Velib’ and realized that I go almost everywhere on my bike. Then, I discovered electric bikes which allowed me to get to my office in the morning without a sweat!
Today, I’m a consultant in the fields of environment and energy. I move around mainly with my foldable electric bike – that I put on the train to get to my customers throughout France, hence the name of my company: The Little Bike.
In July-August 2015, I went around the UK with a recumbent bike fitted with a sail (the whike). In July 2017, I bought a Suntravel trailer to take part in the Sun Trip Tour. In 2018, I would like to ride Lyon-Canton in 60 days.
The Sun Trip demonstrates that there are ways to move without petrol without being an athlete, and that’s what motivates me.
