Each year, an expedition of bikes equipped with solar panels leaves Brussels and crosses around thirty countries, covering more than 10,000 km to encourage a debate on sustainable mobility.
The Sun Trip is an expedition of e-bikes equipped with solar panels travelling through Europe to generate a debate on the future of sustainable mobility.
'The Sun Trip' adventure aims to showcase new forms of mobility. Each participant is an ambassador of solar energy and eco-mobility, pedalling to prove their efficiency and humanist dimension. It also aims to convey the values of cycling: it’s about freedom and slow cruise, roaming overland and discovering the world and its inhabitants. Wheeling around, one gains cardio and muscle without consuming fuel or polluting.
This year’s edition, the fourth of this adventure, set off from Brussels on June 16th and crossed up to 28 countries, cycling more than 10,000 km, with stops along the way to disseminate and foster a debate on sustainable mobility on the continent. The finish line was the French city of Lyon.
The first participants of ‘The Sun Trip’ to make it to Lyon arrived on July 20th, while the last to cross the finish line did so on August 28th, brining this activist adventure for eco-mobility in Europe to a close.
