Me-Mover as an outdoor companion: traveling 1537km through France

Me-Moving is undoubtedly an innovative way of moving, but our customers Dr Roland Spiehl and Alexandra have made the Me-Mover their outdoor travel companion. In the summer of 2016 they took their Me-Movers, bare camping essentials, and traveled 1,537km through France.

Their aim was not to create some kind of speed or distance record, instead they made a point to take regular breaks and keep a low average speed. They were inspired by Ray Jardine’s philosophy: the godfather of ultralight backpacking. They wanted to travel a long distance without straining themselves physically, or packing a whole load of luggage.

To prepare for their month-long travel-holiday they would ride 60km per day through orchards in 5 hours, however they took an additional 3 hours of breaks at cafes and vineyards, truly making the most of their surroundings.

Roland and Alexandra would always rest before they got tired and therefore go on for a long time, giving them a chance to stop and smell the flowers, pick cherries, and to thoroughly absorb the outdoor environment they were in.

Under the stars!

“This way also untrained people can easily cover 75km per day as Natalie Thomas did, but without any challenge,” Roland says.

In France they would sleep outdoors and do ‘stealth’ camping where they would leave no trace, and sleep under 200g cuben fiber pyramid tarps.

We love the approach Roland and Alexandra have taken to Me-Moving! It is a great way to enjoy the summer, spend time with loved ones, and to live in the moment.
