A strong and inspiring duo!

Cécile Barbier-Gondras

Signal processing engineer and Physical Sciences teacher:

For me, cycling is the most efficient and above all the most pleasant way to travel. It makes me smile. I’m on my bike every day. Having the satisfaction of doing things yourself, even small things, of finding solutions to overcome a problem, also makes me smile. I need to be with people for whom the possible is always in sight. “Otherwise, I suffocate…

I think recumbent bikes are the best way to get around, happily, without straining the body. I added a small motor and a solar panel to my bike, and then I discovered the Sun Trip. The Sun Trip brings together people who try, with humility and determination, to create the vehicle of their dreams. They travel incredible distances in incredible conditions and meet incredible people because they have the friendship to compete.

There are ideas that cannot be forgotten. You have to trust them. The Sun Trip embodies the idea that clean, low-noise, safe mobility that respects the environment and the pace of life is possible.

Victor-Emmanuel Gondras

Signal processing engineer and R&D manager for Total Renewable Energies.

He is my partner in my solar bike dream. First, by attaching a panel to a trailer base, completely reworked for its new use, and hooked up to his 250 W motorised upright bike. Then, seduced by the recumbent bike, he reassembled it to equip his Streetmachine with a double adjustable panel.

Passionate about his work, he likes to create technical solutions with rigour and efficiency for a solar electric energy production adapted to various situations.

Convinced that mobility can become clean and that light, electric and solar-powered vehicles can be developed, profitable and mass-produced, he has great ideas in mind, which are being built serenely and solidly.
