      A journey through environmentally

      The bicycle is the most environmentally friendly way to travel such distances, decidedly. Although the carbon footprint will not be zero (we did not expected to remember to breathe during 500 days), we can still enjoy this great feeling of traveling the globe without skinning !

      Discovering the energy in the world

      All three engineers in the field of energy, we will use this trip to concern ourselves with power generation means in the world, and try to go to meet the players in the field, better to make us account the efforts made by some countries, or rather the way there is still to go.

      Why bike ?

      sure, it would be faster by plane ! But with the bike, it is free as air, we do what we want, when we want, where we want !

      Why in the East ?

      Because our bikes are not really amphibians, and if we will not stop our trip to Bordeaux, no 36’000 solutions.

      What about security ?

      We will not play to the unconscious adventurers, and will enter any country not recommended, leaves to make a big detour, if necessary…

      While pedaling ?

      Yes, unless our security decides otherwise. The return will be done by air, is not messing around either !

      The studies, the job ?

      From one year leaving behind his life requires sacrifices. We will have all our engineering degree, it will be quite something gained for return !

      Money, money ?

      Yes, such a trip is expensive : equipment, the plane ticket back, daily life…A description to come will help you get an idea !
