The Sun Trip, Solar Powered Bike race from Lyon to Canton

The Sun Trip is a solar powered bike race from Lyon, France to Canton in China. Some 12,000km. We caught up with them on the second day in Chambery. There are 40 bikes leaving Lyon, 3 piloted by women. They can use sun and pedal power alone. No sneaky overnight charges of mains electricity. There is no support but riders are tracked using the Spot GPS system.
