After a long reflection phase taking into account the evolution of the global Covid19 pandemic in countries where the Sun Trip adventurers would be passing, the organizers have decided to postpone the second Lyon-Guangzhou Sun Trip. While the official departure was scheduled on May 30, 2020, it has now been delayed to 2021.
In recent weeks, we were still hoping to maintain the Sun Trip 2020 adventure in a world emerging stronger from the crisis, but today this challenge carries too much uncertainty.
We examined the option to simply postpone the departure date by a few months, but many participants would not have been able to make it. Such a long challenge requires a lot of sacrifices to put in a yearly schedule and all were prepared for an early summer departure.
Firstly, we’d like to thank our participants for their understanding. In this period of crisis, their attitude was exemplary. Believe us, the current group is simply fantastic and no doubt they will soon inspire all over the world!
We would also like to thank all our partners from both the public or the private sector for their continuous trust and support on the Lyon-Canton Sun Trip project. Their commitment will allow the event to make it through this tricky year!
Therefore, make it a date for 2021 : The Return of the Sun Trip! We’ll be back with our massive Lyon-Canton adventure.
Please note that the Frankfort-Lyon prologue is also postponed to 2021. Initially scheduled for late April 2020, the “Pirineos Sun Trip” is also postponed to an indefinite date.
