Cyclovent, sur les chemins oubliés d'Eurasie

<p> <strong>How does people live at the end of the roads that does not exist on the map ? What happens byways ? At the time of the highways and high speed trains, we take the tangent to the paths that nobody talks about , but where life goes on. Now Boarding !</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Our Grail is</strong> : forgotten and unused roads in France, Germany, Poland, Russia, Mongolia, Central Asia, the Caucasus and the Balkans. The 500 night stops would be:  wild camps , gardens, hearts of men.</p> <p> <strong>Our values</strong> :​​ never sleep in an hotel, share this amazing adventure with sincerity, and being energy independent thanks to our little homemade charging system.</p> <p> <strong>To go forward </strong>: our legs and your support.  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Cyclovent is also a <strong>piece of creativity</strong> that's sometimes poetic, sometimes bubbly but always original : sharing our feelings  while mixing sound and photographs, sound &amp; poetry, sound &amp; sketches.  All served with the right amount of spontaneity and honesty.    </p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>We are five : two humans, two bicycles and a stove</strong></p> <p> The humans: a couple of fearless adventurers (excepts for bears, snakes ... *): * Non-exhaustive list</p> <p>   - <strong>Simon</strong>, 30 years old at the next crossing, storage of food floor mats, visas and mapping manager. He loves : drawing the paths on the map at the camp. He does not like : cars and drizzle .</p> <p>   - <strong>Delphine</strong> is responsible for making the bivouac welcoming, head of organization, absurd ideas provider. She loves : making small drawings on the map at the camp , recording sounds , drawing ... She does not like : wiping the wet from the tent in the morning, crowded roads, starting late, expect after a wonderful encounter.  </p> <p> The bicycles, our brave companions : easy going, always up although sometimes a little flat.</p> <p> The stove : "Flambeur" the burner, because without him we would be cooked ... or not! It helps us feeling brand new after a hearty meal.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>AND BEFORE THAT?</strong></p> <p> During our previous experience, our taste for the byways matured. In Japan, as we were 22 yo,  then in Serbia, where we went on numerous occasions . In Morocco, Canada and Ireland in solo for Delphine. Cyclovent began to mature after the Ireland trip. First life experience cycling in Croatia ( Zagreb- Zadar) , many biking adventure in Brittany, in Burgundy etc ... The project matures over 2 years now. And, you know what  ? <strong>We are ready</strong> !  </p> <p>  </p> <p> Thanks to your support, we would go further in this continent and ensure minimum of security (insurance, water filtration, vaccines) expensive but still essential.</p>
