Back in 2014, our Founder, Chris Faith had been commuting on electric bikes for a few years and had a day job building great big solar panels for utility scale power. He wanted to do something with solar that was a little more personal. Something that people could see, feel and appreciate. Chris wanted the energy these small portable systems produced to move people and their stuff. Sunride Power was born.
We started Sunride with the crazy inspiration of riding a solar powered electric bike all the way across the United States, without plugging it into a wall charger. We've ridden thousands of miles on sunshine alone and our idea is manifesting.
We now operate out of two small production locations in Huntington Beach California and Berkeley California. In our humble opinion, two of the best places in the world to ride a solar powered electric bike!
