The Sun Trip Movies

Here are collected all the official movies produced by the Sun Trip through the years, as well as a selection of movies directed by participants themselves.


Official Movies


These movies retrace the history of the Sun Trip adventure from its beginnings as the first great solar bike adventure between France and Japan in 2010, then the first solar bike rally from France to Kazakhstan in 2013, the Expo to Expo loop Milan-Antalya-Milan (Italy-Turkey) in 2015, the New Silk Roads from Lyon to Canton in 2018 but also with two teasers for the regional Sun Trip Tour events. We display then here in reverse chronological order.

Sun Trip Tour 2019

In 2019, the second Sun Trip Tour Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes was a great success. The sun shone 14 days out of 15. There was a record number of participants: more than 50 took the start. The event involved a dozen communities and nearly ten partners, most notably EDF and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region.

The Sun Trip Lyon-Canton 2018

Sun Trip Tour 2019

No official movie that year.

The Sun Trip 2015

This movie combines emotion, humor, and performance bouncing between adventurers and countries all along the 2015 Milan-Antalya-Milan 7,000km course.

In 52 minutes, with English subtitles, it will take you (back) into the atmosphere of an uncommon and unique adventure where solar energy allows Mankind to experience the world differently.

The Sun Trip 2013

On June 15, 2013, 31 men and women from very diverse backgrounds and age groups took the start of the first Sun Trip event, an eco-adventure for solar bikes between Savoy, France and Astana, Kazakhstan, where participants are free to decide their own course. This movie takes us back to the racing atmosphere and allows us to grasp the unprecedented human epic on the Central Asian steppes. In joy and in suffering, from laughter to tears, adventurers give a face to solar mobility and build the myth of an event that is only hoping to grow.

France-Japon 2010 – Sur la route du soleil levant

This solo adventure set the ground idea for the Sun Trip solar bike rally that was launched less than 2 years later. It is while riding solo in the Central Asian deserts that the idea of a collective project was born.
