The evolution of my solar bike from 2017 to 2021

From my first participation in the Sun Trip in 2017 until today, I have experimented with different configurations of solar bikes.
Here are the basic principles that guided my constructions:
– from 2017 to 2019, I wanted to be able to take my vehicle by train. So I opted for a classic bike associated with a single-wheel trailer carrying the solar panels (which could tilt vertically).
– for the Sun Trip 2020 which was to take us to China, my goal was to be able to have as much solar energy as possible. So I associated my solar trailer (3 panels) with a recumbent bike on which I added a solar roof (2 panels). Thus, I reached the maximum solar surface accepted on the Sun Trip (almost 2.5 m² which corresponds to a power of 500Wp). In 2021, I transformed the trailer a bit.
