The Sun Trip The Solar Bike Adventure
Adventurers on solar bikes choosing their course through Eurasia. Inspired by unassisted yacht races around the world, the Sun Trip is writing a new page in the world of overland adventures.

The Sun Trip is a showcase for new forms of mobility. Each adventurer is an ambassador of solar energy and eco-mobility, proving their efficiency and their humanist dimension.

Sun Trip Association

The association builds connections between Sun Trip participants and all their friends. Working closely with the Sun Trip Company, its mission is to help design and run events, most notably by supervising volunteer work.

Its Board of Directors and Bureau are largely made up of former Suntrippers, who wish to pursue their involvement and keep the spirit of the Sun Trip alive.


Our Ambitions

  • to act as guardians of the Sun Trip values, in particular with a group of active members systematically consulted by the Sun Trip Company on the direction taken;
  • to be active in the organization of Sun Trip and Sun Trip Tour events, in particular by supervising and coordinating volunteers.
  • to foster initiatives by raising awareness for a general audience or by organizing regional events under the Sun Trip banner such as the “Corsica Sun Trip” or the “Pirineos Sun Trip”.
  • to cooperate with the Lyon-Canton Sun Trip founding partners – Lyon city, the Greater Lyon, Only Lyon and the New Franco-Chinese Institute – the boost the international impacts of the Sun Trip.
  • to associate with the Chinese community of Lyon in order to carry out actions of Franco-Chinese cultural influence around the Sun Trip Lyon-Canton project.
  • to raise awareness on ecomobility, especially for young people and school pupils.
  • to gather participants alumni and showcase renewable energies through adventure and travel and foster research and development around electro-solar mobility, pushing oneself to the limits, accessibility as well as friendship among peoples through the promotion of the Sun Trip adventure and its values.
  • to maintain links with other associations promoting new mobility, in particular the Vecolo association involved since 2017 with the Sun Trip for technical support.
  • d’intégrer la dynamique du Sun Trip dans celle impulsée à l’internationale par la ville de Lyon, la métropole du Grand Lyon, Only Lyon ou encore le Nouvel Institut Franco-Chinois, partenaires fondateurs du Sun Trip Lyon-Canton.
