Sunshine Cycles, an electric way to go

Traffic burning fossil fuels sucks, and a really cool way to get yourself out of the snarl is to get around on an electric bike. Plus, Luke’s range at Sunshine Cycles look pretty cool so you’ll look cool too!

Luke used to operate from the container parked near roundabout in Jonson St, but he’s found a new home now on Bayshore Dr next to the Sun Bistro, right near the solar train stop.

That’s perfect for people who want to catch the solar train, then try a fun, healthy zero-emissions way to explore the greater Byron area. A lot of locals hire bikes when visitors or friends come to town, as it’s a terrific way to show them around, Byron style.

Luke says popular trips are sunset tours up the lighthouse, riding up to Newrybar for lunch or some shopping (the bikes have 40km + range), Broken Head, The Farm, and Bangalow.
