This December, the UN is holding an international climate change conference in Paris (COP21) in order to try to agree a legally binding commitment that will keep our planet from warming less than 2 degrees. Unfortunately, the hope of getting an effective legal binding agreement to protect our planet and its earthlings is looking bleak. We therefore must take the power into our own hands! In hundreds of thousands, people will mobilise in Paris to speak out, show solidarity with front line communities already affected by climate change, and take action to save the planet as we know it. We are going to do this on bikes. |
We will ride from London to Paris over five days. We will connect with other cyclists at each step of the ride, skill-share through workshops, form teams, and organise towards our time in Paris. As messengers we will carry stories of hope from our communities, and display them loud and clear at the COP. Ride with us for climate justice and a livable planet!

The ticket will also include some meals, although as these are being provided by the communities we're passing through we won't be able to tell you exactly how many meals will be covered until a couple of weeks before the event. We may also be able to provide accommodation in London and Paris. We're working on this now.
1) £125 (50% deposit) by Oct. 22nd
