Make your next ride first class

WHAT OUR RIDERS
HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US
The electric cafe racers are made from top of the range components. For us, it’s about style and 0% compromise on quality. Our electric cruisers go fast, last long and look damn stylish at the same time. We take the path less ridden over sand, rocks and roads. You can’t stop our fat wheel e-bikes, we’re coming in hot with the dawn.
Our vision is to get more people on solar-powered electric bikes
to offer a clean transport alternative and reduce the need for vehicles!
Our emission reduction targets
We hope to reduce carbon emissions in communities by over 15 tonnes of CO per pod each year.
We plan to have at 100 pods in service by 2024, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions by over 1,500 tonnes every year.
We expect that by 2029, Sunshine Cycles can have more than 1000 pods around the globe, which means directly reducing CO emissions from vehicular transport by 15,000 tonnes per year.
How do we work this out?
- 1 pod with 10 bikes used at 30kms per bike a day = 300kms per day
- At 250 riding days per year = 75,000kms per year, per pod
- Average of 10 litres per 100km for petrol vehicles = 7,500 litre fuel saving
- CO emissions from 1 litre of fuel = 2.1kg
- 7,500 litres of fuel produces 15,750kg of CO emissions
What Makes Us Tick?
Built on a vision of bringing the community together, encouraging a healthy lifestyle, and contributing to the electric vehicle movement, Sunshine Cycles are eliminating the toxic fumes in paradise, and beyond.
We would like to show our respect and acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we are based. The team at Sunshine Cycles respectfully acknowledge the Bunjalung, Midjumbil and Durumbil people who are the traditional custodians of the land on which we we work, live and play.
