Ben Expedition looks back on his latest Zero Waste adventure: Zero to Glasgow
Benjamin de Molliens tells us about this adventure:
"Hello ! 👋
On October 22, I left Lille alternating between sailing ⛵ and cycling 🚵 towards Glasgow. The goal? Join COP26 to lead climate change awareness workshops. I share this Expedition Zero ''to Glasgow'' with you in pictures: 0 waste, 0 new equipment and 0 carbon footprint.”
Crossing England by Bikepacking, without leaving a footprint.
“Leaving Lille in the afternoon, I reached Boulogne-Sur-Mer at night.
The next day towards the pontoons where I found Christian and his flamboyant red Harlequin just 50 years old. 7 hours of navigation, a cross-Channel and a few dolphins further, here we are in Dover, a beer in hand.
In the early morning, I get back on Greta, my bicycle, to attack the last 850 kilometers! Canterbury, London, the majestic but winding Peak District National Park, 🏔 Lancaster, the breathtaking but challenging Kirstone Pass, Carlisle and finally… Scotland on the 31st! 🏴
At first rather spared, whether on my bike or in my sleeping bag, ⛺ I finished this trip soaked, frozen, 🥶 but whole!”
Scotland in Bickepacking, plan for the heat!
A BIKE EQUIPPED WITH A ZERO WASTE ECO-RESPONSIBLE BIKE BAG BY LA VIRGULE
To best respect my zero nine, the bike was loaned to me and my bags made by La Virgule from used materials: inflatable kayak canvas 🛶, life jacket straps and belt 🦺, climbing mattress cover 🧗 and piece of bicycle tire. To get the upcycled frame bag, click here .
