ONE bike, with accessories with bags and a trailer, where some clothes, a tent, a telephone and some water will be transported. Without forgetting this little floating sign flag, located at the back of the frame. That’s all Frederic Lamblin left from Land Pereuse (Eure)this Sunday the 1st May in the morning. The essentials.
But also with a great wave of hope, nurtured by a single goal : go on search green initiatives and innovative projects in the field of treatment of biowasteon the roads of France and Spain, to reach Santiago de Compostela. And come back. An initial journey that gains its full spiritual dimension through encounters, random or not, and the desire to learn to live with the necessary necessities.
Gives green hope
His name is “Green utopia”. Frédéric Lamblin’s new project, if it suggests hope, expectation, daydreams of a greener world, is nonetheless very concrete. After fifteen years spent in the service of an environmentally responsible and local form of production and consumption with the creation of kitchen garden with 1001 vegetablesin Beaumesnil the forty-something now brings new hope.
It follows his commitment to Afev, a national association that allows students to support young people from working-class neighborhoods or school dropouts, which he decided to launch. “I carried out several missions all over France, in Saint-Etienne, in Le Havre … where I looked for initiatives that linked the environment to youth projects, then shared them with the association and saw what could be done. That’s how I came to on the idea of starting my own business. advice and entertainment project in this direction. »
3,700 km by bike
But before he offers his services, it is on the road that Frédéric begins the first phase of his new life.
“I give myself about four months to meet people, projects, ecological initiatives, create a network and discover new ideas to feed the role of advisor that I could get afterwards.”
From Landepéreuse to Tours it will take a specific route for bicycles and then join the network of long-distance cycle routes Eurovelo and finally reach Santiago de Compostela. It is 3,700 km. “I give myself the freedom to change my route or take more time in one place than another, depending on what I find there, who I meet there. »
On the practical side, if Frédéric has thought about the essentials, he will again not go too far. “I take the minimum of things, the rest, we’ll see a little day after day. I planned to sleep in a bivouac, but also with the locals. I am also considering camping one or two nights for hygiene. For food, I do not go in the desert, he says laughing, I can shop according to my needs, usually. »
Finally, Frédéric will share his adventures, about once a week, on one blog. “The goal is not constantly to be on my phone or social networks. On the contrary, the goal is to find myself with nature, but also to regain faith in humanity.”
