In 2022, for the first time, Sun Trip was held in California. In this test run, participants rode a challenging tour through central California.

California is deeply concerned about climate change, so it seemed natural for us to bring the Sun Trip here.

In June 2023, the Sun Trip California will follow a 7 day, 650 mile course from Stanford Research Park to Los Angeles. The trip is limited to 20 participants.


Please enjoy this short film of the 2022 test edition. It will give you a sense of what the Sun Trip California is all about. Video by Oktay Ortabasi and Scott Saunders.
