Cycling fights climate change: join us at the COP26 Global Day of Action

The COP26 global climate summit is a great opportunity to tell our national and local governments that cycling fights climate change – if they’re willing to invest and deliver to ensure cycling is accessible to all. This Saturday, Camcycle is joining towns and cities across the world, cycling groups across the UK and local climate activists to show Cambridge that cycling is a vital part of the climate solution.

Please join us as we ride along Mill Road and into the city centre to join the CambsCOP26 Coalition Global Day of Action.

We’ll be meeting from 11am at Romsey Recreation Ground to arrange flags and banners (you could call for Space for Cycling, Zero Carbon Streets, download a flag of the above image or bring your own creative messages). Then, we’ll depart promptly at noon to ride up Mill Road and into the city centre where we’ll join the back of the CambsCOP26 climate march which leaves Great St Mary’s at 1pm.

We’ll be riding up Mill Road and into the city centre – please bring banners and flags to share the cycling message!

The Camcycle stall bike will be at the Climate Fair on Parker’s Piece at 2pm and at 3pm we’ll use our bicycle bells to join the national sounding of the climate alarm.

All are welcome, please join us whenever and for as long as you can!

Please note that there may be large numbers involved in this event, particularly in the city centre. As Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is a Covid-19 Enhanced Response Area, CambsCOP26 Coalition organisers recommend that you take a lateral flow test before coming to the event, wear a face covering, keep an appropriate distance from others and bring hand sanitiser with you. Please keep yourself and others safe.
