The Sun Trip on the Tour de France 2023!

04.02.2023 - The Sun Trip
The Sun Trip The Sun Trip


On the 9th, 11th and 12th of July 2023, The Sun Trip will be back on the Tour de France’s roads with a new concept of “solar caravan”, to promote our smart ideas!

This event, imagined with the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region on 3 stages of the 2023 Tour, is a continuation of our Brittany experience in 2021, where the participants of the Breizh Sun Trip were able to ride at the end of the Pontivy stage (archive images below).

Here are more details on this new project:

  • About 15 experienced or novice participants will make up this group. There are still a few places left to be part of it.
  • Distance per day: between 50 and 150 km.
  • The idea is both to live a unique experience, but also to have a useful role to talk about new mobilities, before the race and the caravan of the Tour!

Summary of the program:

July 8: Meeting point at mid-day, in a campsite near Clermont-Ferrand
July 9: Operation on the last 30 km of the stage of the Tour de France and specifically on the top of the Puy de Dôme, quite early in the day, with the objective of a media highlight on a national media. Then back to the same campsite.
July 10: Reflection around a walk in margin of the Tour de France (break day). Place for the night to be confirmed soon.
July 11: Access to the starting village, then departure from Vulcania before the advertising caravan, then we will have a route indicated to join the last 30 km of the road of the Tour, until the arrival in Issoire. Accommodation solution closer to Clermont.
July 12: Access to the starting village, then departure from Clermont Ferrand. We will have thereafter a route indicated to join the last 30 km of the road of the Tour until the arrival in Moulins. We are looking for the best accommodation solution to finish the project.
July 13: end or free return to your vehicles in Clermont Ferrand
