Exclusive travel report: With the Solex from Bern to Paris

A dream comes true! With the Velo-Solex from Münsingen near Bern to the Eiffel Tower in Paris
Autor: Katrin Lienhart

It all started with a somewhat crazy idea: Thomas from Münsingen dreamed of traveling to Paris to the Eiffel Tower in a small group on his old Velosolex! He even found like-minded people: Ernst “Aschi” from Hettiswil and Monika and Hansueli from Bolligen. In a roundabout way, Katrin and Noldi from Rekingen in Aargau joined us, who had never sat on a Solex before!

Solexer of the month: Andy

I'm Andy, forty-two, from the region of Solothurn. I've been working on motorcycles for over 30 years now. The Solex have always impressed me, so I finally bought one in the summer of '22, cheap and in poor condition. I had no idea either, but I'm enjoying it more and more and the ugly duckling has become a beautiful swan. I definitely need it once every week, even if it's just to get fresh croissants in the village. People really enjoy it! Kind regards, Andy
