The after Sun Trip Tour: from Valence to Dijon via Châlon-sur-Saône
On July 20th, I leave Valence in TER to join Châlon-sur-Saône. I use the idea that guided the design of my solar vehicle: to take the train. Principles: – a standard bike is always accepted in the TER and in some TGV, – the trailer is acceptable with the panel vertically, it does not take more space than a bike. For the moment, I have taken the train a dozen times in France and Switzerland, I have never been opposed to refusal.
If necessary, we can reduce the length by sliding the 3rd panel on the 2nd, in less than 10 minutes.
In some trains (TGV and Lyria), we can create the equivalent of a cover with trash bags and big scotch (and for the bike, disassembly of the wheels, and when I have the time, pedals and handlebars before putting it in a bag).
July 21, I finish cycling back to Dijon, at 34 km/h average speed.
