FRANCE ‼️‼️‼️ We are back HOME ‼️ After having crossed 32 borders this is the ONE we were waiting for !! We spoke about it for more than 11 months, that is one of the magic moments of the world tour ! We feel incredibly good to be back in our beloved country ! It's now becoming harder and harder to explain to the people we meet that we come from Paris and that it took us one year to come here ! The policemen at the border did not believed us until they saw us jumping out from our bikes and kissing the French ground ! We still have more than 1,100 before reaching Paris, we'll soon be back ‼️ 🍻🎉👌🍾💪🍷❤️ #theboysareback #thegreenwheels #backinfrance🇫🇷 #border #home #worldtour #biketouring #happy

Two days ago we made a quick stop in Bucharest to visit ARBIO ! We had such a great time discussing with the CEO and the co-founder of this amazing Romanian NGO ! ARBIO is the Romanian Association for Biomass and Biogas, standing for a cleaner environment and the competitiveness of biomass and biogas at a local scale, ARBIO's team quickly convinced us of the huge existing potential for alternative sources of energy in Romania ! We found particularly interesting to visit a biomass related project as the Romanian agricultural sector is the biggest in Europe and that the organic waste it produces can easily be transformed in usable energy. Great job guys, it's always an inspiration to meet such motivated people ! We are now cycling north towards Hungary ! #project #europe #cleanerenvironment #biomass #biogas #romania #environment #thegreenwheels #cleanfuture #worldtour

HAPPY HOLI !! What a colorful day we spent in Varanasi, India !! We could not imagine a better place to spend Holi as Varanasi is one of the 7 holy places of Hinduism !
Holi which means "the colourful day" is dedicated to honor Hindu divinity Krishna which coincides with the first spring full moon. That day all across Nepal and India people spray colors to others while dancing and drinking. All day long, streets are overcrowded and full of colors !

It has been an amazing occasion to gain a better understanding of Indian complex culture ! #hindu #india #holi #colors #colordayfestival #happyholi #thegreenwheels #worldtour #biking

INDIA HERE WE ARE ! We spent 3 fascinating days in Kolkata visiting Pollinate Energy's teams and customers! Pollinate Energy is a social business distributing solar lights in Indian largest cities.

These 3 days would not have been so interesting without the help and dedication of Boris and Tao, co-founders of Pollinate Energy in Kolkata. When they arrived in Kolkata 11 months ago, they created the social business from scratch. They built a team of efficient salesmen called "Pollinators" who ensure the distribution of solar lights.

Spending two entire days on the field, we were really impressed by their team's ability to identify areas where needs for electricity are urgent. We also measured the importance of trust in the relationship with their clients.
As a result, Pollinate Energy already sold more than 13,000 solar lights in India and that is just a beginning ! #project #thegreenwheels #green #solar #lights #gogreen #renewableenergy #futureisclean #cleantech #pollinateenergy #india #entrepreneurs #socialentrepreneurship #impact

WOOOW ! Insane 700 kms journey on the Irrawaddy river!
Meanwhile in Bagan, having a beer in front of the Irrawaddy river.
Max - Guys look the current is going directly to Yangon!
Roland - We should take a pirogue and go all the way down to the city!
Louis - Ok! let's talk to a fisherman to try to buy a cheap boat!
Here was it, launching ourselves in a new adventure! We spent 7 incredible days following the river, spending 10 hours a day driving this little machine over the waters of Myanmar!
Even if it was a really exhausting journey because we had to find ways to hide from the police to camp at night, it was one of the most impressive weeks of the trip! So glad to be in Yangon right now, resting a bit before heading to India! #thegreenwheels #green #worldtour #myanmar #burma #frombagantoyangon #irrawadyriver #boat #adventure

Today we had the chance to visit the amazing temples of Bagan ! We spent such a wonderful day cycling through this mystic place, we got lost in the middle of the 2,000 temples ! It was a long road to get all the way to this colorful and inspiring place but definitely worth it ! For sure, Bagan temples are directly competing with the magnificence of Angkor's temples ! 🌏✅🙏🚴 #thegreenwheelsinbagan #green #wheels #myanmar #futureisclean #rollingforabrightfuture #2000buddhas #cycling #worldtour
