On the road of Sun Trip Tour 2017

After two bigger events on the roads of the world, the Sun Trip Company is launching a new concept for Summer 2017 in th French region of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes: the Sun Trip Tour.

The Sun Trip Tour does not intend to replace the original Sun Trip Rally concept (which should be back within the next few years), but rather to make it a more accessible adventure. It aims to allow as many people as possible to get a taste of the Sun Trip while promoting solar bicycle travel.


The Sun Trip Tour will take place in July 2017 (8 to 21). It will be open to all types of solar cycles (as long as they respect some basic technical regulations – to be announced soon).

This adventure will take you to Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes in some of the most beautiful landscapes of France, from the Forez mountains to the Col de l’Iseran (highest paved pass in Europe) through Ardeche, Vercors and Chartreuse mountains while swinging by in two neighboring countries, Switzerland and Italy.


The Sun Trip Tour is a two weeks event bringing up to 50 solar cycles together. Every other day, collective stop-overs will be organised in our partner cities to host participants. It won’t be a race!

Between the partner cities, participants will be free to choose their course, their pace and the place where they wish to stop for the night. Participants making the best use of their solar recharge will get rewarded through an optional challenge.

Each collective activity will provide participants with dinner, French breakfast (tea, coffee, and croissants), and accommodation (either a secure camping site, a refuge, a convent or a hotel). These are meant to be festive events that allows unforgettable life experiences. Discover the provisional stop-over map below.

These activities will also be local entertainment opportunities for our partner cities featuring a “Sun Trip Village”, musical performances and “Sun Trip Soirées” including movie screenings and lectures. In this adventure, participants are more than travellers: they are ambassadors for solar mobility.


La Sun TravelThanks to our partner Solar Systems Moov, the Sun Trip Tour will provide an opportunity for people without solar cycles to purchase “la Sun Travel” trailer www.lasuntravel.com. La Sun Travel can either be adapted on a compatible electric cycle or be installed along with an engine to convert your normal bike into a solar one.

Details regarding “la Sun Travel” trailer will be released shortly.

The Sun Trip Tour 2017 is an unprecedented event aiming at keeping alive the spirit of the Sun Trip rally while opening the experience to the masses.

From today on, you can reserve your spot with our joyful pack of solar cycles!
