WHAT ARE MEMBERS
HAVE TO SAY ABOUT US
I highly recommend Sunshine Cycles as a way of seeing Byron, the beaches, lighthouse and beating the traffic jams. Don't forget to include Skinners Shoot road past the arts factory as a lovely peaceful ride. There are lots of safe bike paths for families. No parking fees!! Good for the planet and good for your body. Go for it!
GREAT WAY TO EXPLORE THE HINTERLAND
We hired for two half days going to Newrybar and the lighthouse. Fantastic to use and meant we could cover heaps more. Riding through the mountains was a real highlight. Great service and bikes. Will definitely do it again
SUCH A FUN DAY OUT
Such a good way to spend the day exploring Byron! Can easily get to the lighthouse and all the surrounding beaches without needing to worry about battery life. Check in/out was super easy with the lock up being remote. 5 Stars, highly recommend it!
BRILLIANT DAY - WELL WORTH IT
We hired the vintage bikes, you can get a solar train from Byron out to the place. It looks closed but is all managed remotely. We then went up to the lighthouse and the beaches and then to the farm for lunch. A brilliant day, such a good way to see Byron and there is lots of bike paths you can take so you don't need to cycle on the road.
Great service, super friendly to talk to! Bikes were excellent! Super fun and easy to get around and explore Byron!! Would 10/10 recommend and will definitely use again!
BY THE FUN
We’d love to hear from any local organisation keen to work with us to create a happier, healthier, and more sustainable community.
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
