This summer, let’s go cycling: the green trend of cycling travel

The pandemic has put ecological issues back at the center of discussions and in particular our travel habits. It is therefore logical that the trend of cycle tourism is exploding. Shall we get started?

The right alternative for traveling galore? Get in the saddle! An ecological alternative to polluting trips by plane or car, some are ready to travel thousands of kilometers across Europe and beyond, with their hands on the handlebars. Like journalist and Instagram content creator Laurianne Melierre, who has been cycling around France with her friend Marion on and off for three years. Together, they created the FreeTheCycle Instagram account, to share their adventures on the road. And show everyone that there is no need to be super sporty, super trained or even to go super far to have fun on a bike.

In a recent story, Laurianne explains that “traveling by bike can be a day like it can be a year”. Cycling is an activity open to as many people as possible, thanks to which everyone can follow their route according to their profile and their desires, including small budgets. Want to get started this summer? Here are our tips for setting off on an adventure, one pedal stroke at a time. Because if there is nothing simpler than traveling with your bicycle, it cannot be improvised.

Cycle touring, instructions for use

Go on an adventure without asking any questions, do you like it? With your feet on the pedals and helmet on your head, you’re ready to roll to destinations you tended to ignore before the pandemic. However, setting off on a bicycle on a whim takes a little bit of preparation. First of all, be aware that traveling alone or with others requires a different organization. If you’d rather go solo, FreeTheCycle offers these tips.

1. Prepare for the adventure. First, you must favor the cycle routes (lanes reserved for bicycles and appropriately signposted), anticipate your nights by booking accommodation on your way, and look at some activities in the area that would be of interest to you.

2. Test yourself before you go. In addition, Marion and Laurianne recommend testing 2 or 3 nights, if you are traveling alone for the first time.

3. Find the right place to sleep. Safety question, if you go solo, avoid the tent in the middle of nature, you never know, it is better to plan your night in a youth hostel or a campsite. You will be more sheltered from danger and it will be more comfortable. On the other hand, if you are traveling with others, sleeping under the stars or in a tent can be a fun and economical option. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to camp or bivouac anywhere. To help you avoid a fine of 1,500 euros, here are the conditions according to article R-111-32 of the town planning code: “Camping is freely practiced, outside the influence of roads and public thoroughfares, under the conditions set by this sub-section, with the agreement of the person who has the use of the land, subject, where applicable, to the opposition of the owner”.

4. What about eating, then? It is recommended to buy products with little packaging, to reduce your waste and not have to struggle to find trash cans on the way. Bread and a piece of cheese or a tin of sardines, it’s perfect because it doesn’t mind the heat. Also, take some fruit. A good idea: take Tupperware with you. It is often possible to ask in the lodging or the hotel which lodges you if they cannot prepare you friction for the midday. A tabbouleh, a pasta salad, a ratatouille … this allows you to vary the pleasures day after day. Regarding meat, dry sausage is very easy to store in the open air. Don’t forget the snacks either. Besides fruits, dried fruits, and cereal bars. Will give you an energy boost for a long time.

Where to go? Our cycling tourism destination ideas

If you live in the North and want to go to the South, you will still have to plan a short train ride, unless you want to make a trip of several days. It is therefore important to plan your route and to plan a good organization to know where to sleep and where to go to avoid the tile.

The Loire à Vélo is one of the most popular places for cycle tourism. Everything is perfectly organized (signage, dedicated lane, accommodation, repair, and rental shops, etc.). Yet other (less frequented) destinations are waiting for you, such as the Bay of Mont-Saint-Michel or the wonders of the Camargue. To find an unusual and less frequented destination, we advise you to use the francevelotourisme site or the book Slow Vélo by Bérangère Florin and Eugénie Triebel. For example, the two authors offer you an escape from Strasbourg to Colmar on the route of the vineyards of the region. Everything is detailed there, the length of the stay, the number of kilometers per stage, a practical sheet, and their logbook. Ideal for all cycle touring enthusiasts looking for something new.

Luggage and equipment: leave nothing to chance

When it comes to luggage, the keyword is sharing. The more you share hygiene products, the lighter you will travel. “The most important thing to pack is the weight/volume/utility ratio”, we can read on FreeTheCycle. It will be very easy knowing that, to wash your clothes, you will undoubtedly find laundromats in case of real need. Do not hesitate to take some laundry capsules with you. Alternatively, according to the count, you can choose to hand wash most of your stuff using natural multi-purpose soap, again access to water in cemeteries is straightforward. Also, opt for merino T-shirts. This wool, very light and breathable, retains very little odor. We can therefore wear the same garment several days in a row before having to wash it. To reduce dirty laundry, separate clothes made for pedaling and those for the evening. And remember that you are going on an adventure. Reduce the exchange as much as possible.

What equipment to bring for a cycling adventure?

A rule already: try to borrow or rent before thinking of buying.

Here is a list of the basic equipment for cycling touring:

– A pair of gloves (or mittens to protect the palms of your hands)

– Well-breathable clothing suitable for cycling in hot conditions

– A reflective garment (vest yellow safety jacket ) – A jacket with hood and made with a waterproof and breathable membrane. If it starts to rain, you can quickly get very cold.

– A helmet (light and breathable if possible)

– Sunglasses (both to protect yourself from the sun and to avoid getting debris or an insect in the eye)

– Front and rear lights: 200 lumens or more for the main lamp

– A bicycle pump (mandatory)

– An inner tube repair kit (patch, glue, and tire iron) and especially learn how to do it before leaving!

– Two air chambers (it’s safer)

– A survival blanket (in case of injury, bad weather …)

– A mobile phone with a charger and an external 10,000 mAh battery

– A water reserve of 2 liters

– A first aid kit

– Saddlebags to take it all (especially not to have everything on your back, it’s hell)

So when do you plan to ride?

Visibility of children in traffic

In the darker months of the year, children must be visible in traffic. Rain or fog creates additional dangers on the roads. With these tips, your children are safe on the move in autumn and winter.

Reflective material increases visibility in the dark;

A safety vest must meet standard EN ISO 20471 or EN 1150;

The school satchel must meet the DIN 58124 standard.

Children are particularly at risk in the autumn and winter months: in bad weather and the dark, they are often barely visible to drivers – especially not if they are not wearing light-colored, reflective materials. A dark-clad pedestrian can only be recognized by a driver from a distance of around 25 meters in poor visibility. For comparison: the stopping distance of a car in an emergency braking from 50 km / h is about 28 meters – too long to come to a stop in time in an emergency in front of a road user at risk.

However, if a pedestrian wears clothing with reflective materials,

visibility improves up to 140 meters.

When buying reflective material, pay attention to the norm

If you are out and about in the dark, you should wear shoes and jackets with integrated reflective material. A safety vest is worn over clothing also

significantly increases visibility. The material must meet the EN ISO 20471 or EN 1150 standards. There are also reflectors for sewing and gluing. When buying a school satchel, parents should make sure that it complies with the DIN 58124 standard.

If you cycle to work or school, you should also check the lights on the bike and attach the required reflectors. You can find more information about roadworthy bicycles here.

Mutual consideration

Drivers can also help improve road safety by adapting their driving style to the visibility and driving more slowly. Visibility can also be significantly improved with clean windscreens and headlights as well as functional wiper blades.

Tips from the ADAC Foundation for a safe journey to school

In addition to reflectors on clothing, school bags, and bicycles,

groups of joggers, for example, are a good way for schoolchildren to get to school safely. A group of up to 12 children, accompanied by one or two adults, walk to school together in the morning.

Open the registration certificate of your car and check when its technical inspection is valid. If their validity has expired or is due to expire during the planned vacation, be sure to visit the nearest vehicle inspection station before departure. Are you wondering which Vehicle Inspection Station in the Kartuzy area to inspect? Choose the one that has been best rated by customers – it is located in Dzierżążno, by the provincial road, at 10A Kartuska Street.

You don’t have to make an appointment with us – just come!

You can also pay by card without any problems.   Although the days have been getting longer recently, it is still worth remembering about the correct setting of the lights – at our stations, you can do it completely for free!

What should you check yourself before leaving?

Oil Level  Checking and topping up the oil level is an absolute minimum that you need to do before going on a long trip. It does not matter whether the car is brand new or slightly older – the oil level must always be correct.

By the way, it is worth taking a look at the levels of other operating fluids – washer fluid, brake fluid, and cooling fluid.

Necessary equipment  The warning triangle and the fire extinguisher are mandatory equipment for a car in Poland. It is also always worth equipping the car with a decent first aid kit, reflective vests, a towing rope, and jumper cables.

Travel comfort Check wipers and windows. Make sure the feathers are not chipped and cracked. If so, the wipers must be replaced. Dirty windshields or headlights reduce the comfort and safety of travel – do you want to wash your car? We invite you to one of our car washes!

Lighting  Check the efficiency of the headlamps and, if necessary, replace the bulbs with stronger ones. It is also necessary to correctly set the lights so as not to dazzle other traffic users.

Ventilation Contamination of the ventilation ducts reduces their patency and results in inefficient operation of air vents and air conditioning. It is a good idea to vacuum the sewers and outlets inside the car, clean and dry the pollen filters. It is also worth thinking about cleaning the air conditioning system.

A road safety morning for the young people

Friday, six young people from the Medico-Educational Institute (IME) of Pont-Soutain were introduced to road safety during the morning.

For Noa, Nolan, Doria, Joana, Maxime, and Emeric, the morning began with a little booster shot from two policemen from Parthenay, including Pascal Arnoux, head of the municipal police of Parthenay, on the different rules on the road and the meaning of the signs. They were accompanied by Sonia Yandané, municipal councilor responsible for road safety. After this revision of the Highway Code, the young people were able to familiarize themselves with the bikes rented from Vélo Gâtine by practicing on a bike course created for the occasion on the IME evolution platform.

The end of the morning ended with a little bike ride expected by all, in the center of Parthenay, after each participant donned the essential safety equipment such as a reflective vest and helmet. This morning was one of the most successful, both for the young people, but also for Aurane Riffé, organizer of this event.

“This little morning cycling road safety is part of a training project for the vocational diploma in youth, popular education, and sport, option Activities for all, and social animation (BPJEPS APTAS) that I am completing this year, at the Center for Resources, Expertise and Sports Performance (CREPS) in Poitiers,” explains Aurane Riffé. “This one-and-a-half-year training takes place in an apprenticeship, within the IME directed by Catherine Lafoix.”

The Millennium activated the stowage in Mar del Plata

The Millennium looked like a newly kicked anthill when ants start to come out in all directions. Located in section 13 of pier 3 of the port of Mar del Plata, it was the only boat in the more than 200 meters long that has the jetty, which promoted unusual activity in this sector.

Stevedores loading tablets onto the wooden pallets that are then transported to the empty containers that wait a little further away. The Small Navy crane lifting cargo from the hold, sailors waiting to be able to get on as relays, other stevedores resting in the shadow of the elevator. Everything around the first ship that unloads illex in Mar del Plata in this 2020 season that can be interrupted on Monday if CAPA and SOMU do not seal the agreement with the salary update.

“We are 40 stevedores, half from the Little Navy and the other half from the Hiring Center,” says the manager of the troupe of booties, gloves, and girdles, but without helmets. “We have them in that trailer, nobody wants to use them,” he says of a breach that is already a tradition in Mar del Plata. Stevedores without protection and nobody who works the acts of infringement. Then, to be sorry for an avoidable accident, they are the first.

The Millennium entered with 350 tons of the whole squid, mostly S and SS, says the fleet chief, dressed in a fluorescent-colored safety vest that sets him apart from the rest. “The boat fished very well, in ten days the Patagonia Blues will enter”, anticipates Alfonso Villegas.

The Millennium had two and a half days of travel to reach Mar del Plata from the fishing area, one of unloading and another two of return. “We always operate in this port because the stowage is efficient and we have containers and very good repair service. The ship is celebrating its 50th harvest next year and things must always be done to it,” said the owner’s representative.

While the stevedores unloaded the 350 tons in less than twelve hours, electricians reviewed the power machines and the cold compressors. “If we were to unload in the south, we cannot take more than 200 tons per day, there you already discount one of the days of the trip, it is a little more expensive and there is not always a priority in unloading. And here we feel at home, it works very well”, values ​​the task of the stevedores who come and go without stopping.

“If God is everywhere but attends in Buenos Aires, in fishing the example is valid for Mar del Plata. It is everywhere but it serves here; here you have everything you need, mechanics, electricians, turners, welders; all items to solve problems quickly and go back to fishing, “says Villegas, who watches that sizes S and SS go to the appropriate container.

As the season progresses, he maintains that the task is irregular, with nights of good catches and others with very little, and a period of bad weather that forced them to shelter in Bahía Camarones.

“The squid is a little bit bigger than last year’s, within the same sizes but a little bit bigger,” he says, although he admits he does not know what stock it comes from, whether it is the summer spawning season or the subpatagonic. “Talk to me about iron, not about catches,” he says, begging for mercy, before laughing.

Do you travel on a motorcycle? Tips for safe driving

Next, we offer you some recommendations to have a safe motorcycle trip:

Helmet use

Although it is the most obvious recommendation, it is important to note that 28% of motorcycle riders misuse the helmet, either by not wearing it or by using it incorrectly. It is the most essential element to operate a motorcycle and the one that is least used.

According to the World Health Organization, wearing a helmet reduces the risk of death by 40% and serious injury by 70%. Its correct use is key to safe driving.

When choosing a helmet, keep in mind the following recommendations:

Smooth, hard exterior with retro-reflective markings.

Internal filling not less than 25 thousandths of a meter

Flexible padding attached to the padding, which adjusts the helmet to the head, that is, that is for your size.

Belt retention system and buckle of two-hundredths of a meter minimum width that passed under the chin correctly fasten the helmet to the head.

Polycarbonate visor, preferably anti-fog to prevent fogging.

That the helmet is approved by IRAM standards, that is, that it was subjected to a series of processes and tests aimed at verifying that it meets all the necessary basic safety features.

If the helmet suffers an impact, you must change it because it loses effectiveness.

Driver and passenger position

The rider must adopt a posture that allows him to be in control of the motorcycle. Ideally, the hip should be as close to the fuel tank as possible and the knees should lightly press the tank. At the same time, the feet must be on the pedal.

The passenger also has to put his feet on the pedal and must be supported by the driver’s waist. Also, it must accompany the movements of the driver without intervening in the maneuvers.


The blind angle when we ride a motorcycle limits our rear lateral vision and is often the main cause of many accidents.

The riskiest moments occur in lane changes, in traffic situations, or when a car behind us performs an unsigned or unforeseen maneuver. Some of the more experienced motorcyclists know how to avoid the blind spot by looking back quickly when changing lanes, but it is something that for a fraction of a second forces us to take our eyes off the road.

The best way to ride a motorcycle is to look at the rear-view mirrors frequently to have greater control over the rest of the vehicles on the road. Although many motorcyclists are reluctant to use the rearview mirrors, it is essential to incorporate them during driving, as they will give us an overview of what is happening behind us. Also, we must signal all the maneuvers that are carried out to warn the rest of the drivers of what we will do, either with the lights or the horn.


In a curve the idea is to adjust the speed before entering it, not to use either brakes or clutch to achieve greater grip.

Braking. Simultaneously apply brakes progressively, without clutch action to take advantage of the engine brake, while kneading the tank and maintaining the posture.

If it rains, it will be better to wait 10 to 20 minutes to get out, once the rain stops. This is to have more adherence.

At night it is advisable to wear light or reflective clothing with reflective fabric since the important thing is that the rest of the vehicles can see the motorcycle and the driver.

If you go on a motorcycle, it is mandatory that you wear a reflective vest

This Wednesday came into force the regulations of the municipality of San Miguel de Tucum án that requires motorcyclists to use this garment as a badge.

The measure created a stir among drivers and divided opinions on different paths.

“The regulatory use of vests is already a fact. Despite the criticism on the streets, drivers have already been seen using them since yesterday and it shows that people are interested in supporting the initiative,” commented the undersecretary of Transit and Transportation of the capital’s Municipality Enrique Romero.

Also, the official stressed again the intention to care for the lives of the driver and pedestrians above all else.

“We don’t put numbers on reflective vests or anything like that. What we seek is to improve road safety,” argued Romero. In this way, it differed from what is done in the province of Buenos Aires, where the motorcycle patent must appear on the vest by law.

In several businesses in the field, as it was found on Monday, the reflective vests had been sold out, and merchants were analyzing the possibility of ordering, also, garments such as jumpsuits and jackets with reflective strips.

Parallel to this debut, today at 8:00 p.m. several groups of Tucumán motorcyclists will carry out a new mobilization in Plaza Independencia in opposition to the use of vests.

“As a biker, I am also concerned about safety due to the number of motorcycles that change lanes, come against me, and do not wear a helmet or a patent. We are also affected by accidents, but to combat them what we need are more controls”, stated Andrea Maidan, member of the motorcycle group”Unión Rutera MG”.

The use of the vest

The garment will be regulatory for drivers and their respective companions. In the future, the use of the vest will also be borne by the cadets and the dealers. As an additional measure, the latter will have to add reflective stripes on the boxes of their motorcycles. Over time, Romero will expand the mandatory nature of the reflective vest to the employees of the gomerías.

In addition to the vest, the use of the shoulder straps is also valid (a kind of light girdle that intersects the back and comes in orange or yellow). Another option is to resort to various clothing models made with high-visibility materials, such as jumpsuits and jackets that already come with built-in reflective stripes. Similarly, we can buy the light strips separately and sew them, on our own, to the clothing in question.

The Right Vest

The colors allowed in municipal regulations are pure yellow, and yellow, orange-yellow, and green. The important thing is that the vests contain more than one reflective band (at least five centimeters thick) and that the fabric is sensitive to light. Regarding measurements, these garments should be 60 centimeters long and 35 centimeters wide, with a reflectivity of 330 lux candles per square meter.

The acquisition of clothing

The vests and shoulder bags are sold in automotive businesses, such as distributors and motorcycle parts stores. Another option is to visit a local specialized in work clothes and construction. Also, there is a street sale of reflective vests (not that of shoulder bags), and, in online commerce pages such as “Mercado Libre” and “OLX”, both garments can be obtained in different fabric and size thicknesses (up to XXL).

The municipal resolution that establishes the mandatory use of reflective vests (or shoulder straps) for those who drive motorcycles, will be carried out in stages and gradually. Starting today, with its implementation on the streets, it will proceed to a test phase where the main objective is to inform drivers about the measure, make a call to attention to offenders and allow motorcyclists to purchase the vests.

Regardless of the town or municipality of residence of the motorcyclist, the use of the reflective vest or shoulder strap is mandatory for drivers and companions who enter the capital of Tucumán.

The sanctions

For now, roadblocks will only focus on driver awareness and prevention. Only in a second stage of the regulations will the fines be determined and the amount of the penalties will be set. The Undersecretariat of Traffic and Transport clarified that the hijacking of the motorcycles is not foreseen and that the inspections will be comprehensive, checking the use of helmet and lights besides.

Tips: what clothes to wear to run in the rain

A cloudy sky, a couple of drops, an intermittent drizzle, and even a little more too. Some look at the sky and find they’re a perfect excuse not to go training or avoid any competition: the rain. The truth is that, except for those circumstances in which integrity is put at risk, a little water does not rust anyone.

And many times, rainy weather can be an ally, always taking the necessary precautions to avoid problems. It is also true that not even running on a rainy day is heroic and not going out is cowardly, sometimes it is better to keep yourself. But when there are many days without activity due to the water, it is advisable to take precautions and leave excuses aside.

Some advice:

Raining does not mean wearing more clothes: on the contrary, adding more coats will imply more weight on the body once it gets wet. Use the usual amount.

Garments should be technical, it is ideal to avoid cotton or materials that accumulate liquid. Some sneakers have the same purpose, with materials that do not absorb and keep the foot dry.

A repellent jacket would be ideal. When buying one, you must observe how much water it repels: there are some uses for a drizzle and others that are useful for a storm. A windbreaker jacket is not necessarily water repellent.

Wearing the hood can be useful, but be careful because in general, it removes vision from the sides (important if you run on the street).

Rainy days are generally less bright, so it is important to wear reflective clothing with reflective fabric and bright colors so that everyone can see you.

You should also choose shoes with a good grip. On the street, some slippers slip. And for running on land, without a good mud-prepared sole, you can end up in a fall.

To avoid water on the face, the best is a visor or cap. Lenses prevent the eye from coming into contact with water, but they splash and remove vision.

Wet clothes and body rub are not good alidades. That is why technical clothing is important. Be careful with blisters and chafing. Petroleum jelly is a good friend.

Be careful with electronic equipment because in many cases water can ruin them. If you use a cell phone holder, you can cover the phone with plastic wrap to prevent it from getting wet.

The use of music for running should also be taken into account since with rain the risks increase and it is better to be vigilant.

Don’t trust puddles: being covered by water you can’t see how deep a well can be and when stepping on it can cause falls or twists. Always try to step on insurance.

If it is cold and you have a place to leave a change of clothes, keep it in mind: bring something to change as soon as the activity is finished will prevent you from getting cold.

Don’t forget about hydration. Just because your body is wet doesn’t mean you shouldn’t drink water or isotonic drink.

For racing, many use lightweight pilots or large bags with holes for arms and head. In this case, it must be borne in mind that it does not have a ventilation system, so it can generate a lot of perspiration, which will still moisten the clothes.

In the case of hail, storm, or thunderstorm, it is better to think about postponing or postponing the departure. The same in the case of high wind.

Tips for driving in fog: correct use of lighting and a lot of patience

There is nothing worse than going down the road and finding yourself a dense fog bank. It is normal to suffer nerves since visibility drops to extreme limits and the chances of having an accident increase. It is best not to lose your cool and remember some key points for driving in these weather conditions.

The first thing is to make g  ood use of the fog lights, both the rear and the front. In a quick summary, it should be remembered that fog lights do not serve to improve your visibility, if not so that other vehicles are easier to see, although the front ones can help you see something better.

Depending on the country where the car is rented, the permits needed may vary.

According to article 106 of the regulations, the use of front fog lamps will be mandatory with dust and smoke in the environment, with fog and snow, and only in heavy rain. The rear ones will be obligatory as long as these previous assumptions can be qualified as “intense”.

If you do not use these lights correctly, you can dazzle and make uncomfortable the rest of the drivers who are on the road and cause an accident. Plus, they can fine you, so watch out when you plug them in.

Other useful tips

It is best not to lose patience, slow down, and increase the safety distance. Also, avoid overtaking if you are driving on the motorway or highway and always stay in the right lane. Follow the road lines to continue the layout of the road and do not imitate the movements of the car that precedes you, since if you get confused or make a mistake you could have an accident.

Almost 7% of accidents occur in foggy situations.

Fog lights: when should I turn them on?

On the other hand, and regarding the use of lights, avoid connecting long ones. Fog usually reflects light and this will dazzle you and will not increase your visibility. It is more recommended to drive with a low beam or low beam. Also, be sure to keep all the windows clean and if they get foggy you can direct the ventilation towards them or open the windows a little. Connects the wipers intermittently to eliminate moisture that can accumulate.

Finally, if you see that the conditions to continue your journey are very dangerous, park the car as close as possible to the shoulder and connect the emergency lights (if you cannot stop in a more protected place). Always get out of the car wearing reflective clothing with reflective fabric and never turn off your emergency lights.
