The SunPedal Ride is an outreach project started by Sushil Reddy in 2016. The idea is to have conversations about clean energy and sustainable mobility via endurance journeys undertaken on zero tail-pipe emission vehicles. Each edition of The SunPedal Ride is a new challenge which is executed by a team and supported by a group of sponsors/partners to spread the message via public interactions. A medium of a zero tail-pipe emissions vehicle is used in each edition of The SunPedal Ride.
There is an urgent need to combat climate change by shifting towards a sustainable means of living and The SunPedal Ride project is an attempt to inspire people to change their individual lifestyle to adopt a more sustainable one.
Sushil Reddy is an IIT Bombay alumnus from the Department of Energy Science and Engineering and an HEC Paris Alumnus from the MSc Program in Sustainability and Social Innovation. Sushil has a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records for the longest journey on an ebike.
