Love camping but don’t like using a car to get into the great wide open?
This can be a sticking point for those seeking a green, back-to-nature experience:
Unless you are backpack-trekking with a bare-bones pup tent, getting all the camping paraphernalia you need for a comfortable trip into the wild can be nigh on impossible without burning gas.
A Danish company has just come up with a plausible, neatly designed answer to this problem: a travel trailer light enough to haul behind a bike.
The Wide Path Camper could help reshape the future of camping.
It weighs just 40 kilos (88 lbs.) unloaded, so pulling it behind your bike it may give you chunky calves but will hardly snap your hamstrings.
And it turns out to be pretty roomy when folded out from its travel mode.
Courtesy of a projecting metal nose, the Wide Path extends far enough to make space for two face-to-face sofas and a pull-down table, all within a shell that’s far warmer and more weatherproof than the average tent.
The sofas flatten at night to form a double bed large enough to sleep two people.
If you want to make the whole package greener still, the Wide Path comes with an optional solar cell for charging devices.
