On 13 June, the group will pass by the Grand Place in Brussels at 12 noon to take a photo at the end of the prologue, then the participants will go to the Place du Luxembourg in Ixelles (2pm-3.30pm).
The official start of the Sun Trip Europe will take place on 16 June at midday, with a meeting open to the public at 1pm on Place Fernand Cocq in Ixelles.


The main lines of the route

“Let’s make Europe an adventure again” is the bet we are proposing to the participants of this 4th edition of The Sun Trip adventure. This European project is not a backup plan, it is simply the project that the Sun Trip needed to relaunch itself on an international scale.

The Sun Trip Europe route will feature approximately 5 checkpoints, combining major European cities and high mountain locations. Between each checkpoint, participants are free to set their own course and must ride without assistance. It is specified that participants will not be able to ride at night.

It is specified that checkpoint #1 was initially planned in Stockholm (Sweden) but that it was decided on 26 April 2021 to change for Riga (Latvia), in order to avoid mandatory ferry crossing.

Passage through Sweden remains possible and all sea connections to the Baltic countries will be allowed.


The partners

We are proud to have mobilised more than 15 partners for this European project, private and institutional partners, both loyal and new to the adventure. In the context of the current crisis, their support is a real sign of commitment to the values of the Sun Trip. Thank you for your support!

The context did not help! We have obviously lost many non-European prescripts. But the group remains dense, composed of nearly participants, as for the start of the Sun Trip 2018. Thank you for your trust and good luck to all.

    Hello good morning!
    Is Sun trep organization as well expected in 2022 ? If yes, is there any information already available?
    Is it also in Europe or could it be elsewhere?
    And is it possible to know the arrival date in Porto this year (Portugal)?
    Maybe it’s possible for a Portuguese team to participate.
    thank you
