Cool wheels

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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”

Echonetdaily is made possible by the support of all of our advertisers and is brought to you by this week's sponsors Vast Furniture & Homewares Ballina and Falls Festival Byron Bay.
