Guinness World Record holder for riding a solar bike across India (7424 km)
I am Sushil Reddy, an IIT Bombay graduate from Mumbai, India. I work in the field of Solar Energy in India. There are exciting times ahead in the renewable energy sector in the developing countries.
I undertook a solar awareness trip called « The SunPedal Ride » in the summer of 2016 in which I rode a solar-powered electric bicycle across North West India in 79 days, covering 7424 kilometers. With a support team of three members, we interacted with more than 10.000 people throughout the journey via seminars, presentations and demonstrations in universities, NGOs and corporate companies. The aim was to raise awareness around the solar energy scenario in India and motivate people to use solar energy as much as possible while highlighting its benefits in terms of sustainability. This ride was also a Guinness World Record for the longest journey on a motorized bicycle.
It is an honor to be invited as the special guest for the Sun Trip Tour 2017 and interact with people from different countries. I am eagerly looking forward to the solar-powered adventure. I am very excited!
I am extremely grateful to my partners & sponsors who have supported me.
