We’re Pedalling on COP26 for the Global Day of Action on November 6th

The UN Climate Conference is the world’s last best chance to avert a climate catastrophe and we’re joining with other groups for the Global Day of Action for Climate Justice on November 6th.  We will join the Cycling Bloc (sustainable transport) at the rear of the march, assembling on Kelvin Way from where we will walk our bikes sending out the message that ‘This machine fights climate change’.

Here’s how you can get involved:

  • If you’re in Glasgow, join one of our feeder rides from various corners of the city organised by OnBikes, Friends of Bearsway, Glasgow Southside Women’s Road Cycling, Cycling UK Glasgow and more.
  • If you’re in Edinburgh or along the route, join the mass demo ride from Edinburgh on the day, jointly organised with Critical Mass Edinburgh (you can sign up here). There’s also an option for a quicker paced ride to be sure you’ll get to the march in time for the start (the Critical Mass ride is a demo in its own right).
  • If you’re further afield, you could Pedal on COP from your town or city – we’ve got feeder rides in the works from all corners of Scotland (coming by bus or train is fine too!)
  • If you can’t make it to Glasgow for that day, join in local demonstrations or organise your own – you can find a list of local hubs here.

There has never been a more urgent or important time to mobilise. This day needs to be massive across Glasgow, Scotland, and the world. So, please join us, any way you can!
