To achieve this journey, I will ride my new steel frame, 26 inches bicycle:
A VSF TX-400 bike recognized among cyclists.
I will carry my clothes, my food, something to cook, repair/maintain kit for the bicycle, first-aid kit, camping material, maps / guides / dictionaries, etc …
The goal is to minimize luggage and stick to the essential in order to reduce the weight and volume carried.
In addition to the original equipment of the bike, I added some useful accessories such as a bike computer, a mirror and a converter to make my own electricity for small electronic devices, semi-automatic pedals …
To feel relaxed, I purchased a long distance travel insurance « Marco-Polo » from , the No. 1 French travel broker, born in 1981 like me!
AVI International today cares for over 100 000 people worldwide, works with nearly 40 countries with an annual turnover of € 3 million.
This insurance covers the major risks and is even required in some countries to obtain a visa (eg China). I thank AVI for their warm welcome and their reactivity, especially Zoubida.
