Prologue Lyon-Brussels

Association du Sun Trip Association du Sun Trip

It will be the longest prologue ever organised on a Sun Trip, with a course of more than 1000 km, planned over 12 days between Lyon, Frankfurt and Brussels.

This prologue, organize by the Sun Trip association members, will be an event within the event, open both to the participants of the Sun Trip Europe but also to all those who wish to come and taste (or re-taste) the pleasure of a trip on a solar bike. The prologue is carried by the Sun Trip association and its active members.

It is also an excellent opportunity to come and experience the atmosphere of a great start to The Sun Trip.


We will meet at the Lyon base camp on Saturday 29th May.
A first public meeting will be held in the city centre on Sunday 30 May, in the form of an aperitif.
The day on Monday will be dedicated to exchanges between participants, cycling fans and young people.
The start of the prologue will be organised on Tuesday 1 June (10 am – 1 pm).
The passage to Frankfurt is scheduled for 8 June.
The arrival in Brussels is scheduled for 12 June, to have time to meet up with the Sun Trip Europe group.

The routes

The route of the prologue proposes stages of about 100km, with a welcome every evening and the monitoring of a small technical team. The stage in Frankfurt will be the opportunity to meet several participants of the Sun Trip Europe during a media event organised with the city.

We will soon be presenting all the stage points (campsite or gîte). Mutual help and conviviality will be the key words of the prologue.
