France 3 is partner of Sun Trip Tour Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes!
I received today a parcel that I did not expect anymore… I had to open it to realise that the partnership requested from the manufacturer of my trailer, the producer of the mine, became effective! These are different elements to complete my trailer: a satchel, fixing kneecaps, two neon yellow pennants for the motorists to correctly mark my trailer.
Last Saturday, I was driving in the Saône-et-Loire. I take a break in Givry, a person is interested in my vehicle, we discuss bike and SunTrip. He asks to take my picture and… I find out he's a reporter in the local newspaper! See the online article "A funny solar steed" in the Saône-et-Loire Journal on June 20, 2017.
The SunTrip Tour 2017 will be broadcast daily on FR3 Auvergne Rhône-Alpes thanks to the journalists who will be engaged with a solar bike on the course…

The gable-on-street cycle shop was my first partner.
I thank Julien Fernandez for believing in my project from the first hour and for advising me with a lot of attention and professionalism. He is the supplier of my electric bike and has given me a discount as part of my participation in Sun Trip 2017. It was therefore logical that the first public presentation of my solar bike be organized at home. This event will take place on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, starting at 6.30 pm, at 17 Rue Général Farouk in Dijon.
For the record, the image of the beginning of this partnership, December 17, 2016.
This page was very empty at first, and then as the project progressed, the partnerships gradually developed with different actors in connection with the bicycle, the solar or the technology of materials, up to the support, welcome and unexpected, of an Environmental protection association, the ADEROC.
Today, I met Philippe Heinrich, the director of a Dijon company specializing in 3 D printing and software training: I was able to discover the different materials for printing parts with mechanical properties Specific.
I have the project to keep traces of this adventure, in the form of writings, drawings and images. Pictures of course, but I would also like to report films of this SunTrip 2017! Fix on the "film" The Landscapes that parade, the inhabitants of the villages crossed, and the soundscapes also. However, if I regularly practice the photo, the animated image is somewhat unfamiliar to me. So when I meet Sasha and Perrine, both film professionals, I take the opportunity to ask them for advice. How could a neophyte like me exploit a camera in an adventure such as the Sun Trip? Both are lavish in recommendations and advise me before any economy, sobriety, efficiency… I tell myself that they aimed just, me who too often have a taste for glut! Perrine recommends the film by Thierry Frémaux on the Lumière brothers. Passing through Lyon two weeks later, I run to the institute Lumière to obtain the DVD. I have watched it several times already, there is so much to learn… Thanks to you, Perrine and Sacha, I hope that I will live up to my task in July!
