The COP26 summit will bring world powers together to protect the future of our planet in an attempt to bring climate change under control.
- We will provide a 'mainline' route from London to Glasgow, available on RidewithGPS from mid-October.
- Plan your own route to join the mainline route at one of the rendezvous points: London, Oxford, Burton-on-Trent, Holmfirth, Reeth, Haltwhistle, Moffat, or Glasgow.
- You will be able to upload your route to our RidewithGPS map (from mid-October onwards) so other local riders can connect to the mainline up to Glasgow.
- Ride at your own pace aiming to meet in Glasgow on the evening of Thursday 11th November 2021.
what's the point?
Riding to Glasgow won’t stop climate change any more than banging a saucepan on your doorstep stopped COVID-19. But it’s a statement of intent – a physical expression of our desire for strong leadership and an acknowledgement that we’re all in this together.
Once in Glasgow, we plan to join the peaceful marches that will be taking place in the city.
No prizes no support
Please note this is a reliability ride not a race or a sportive. This ride is unsupported and you are responsible for yourself and your equipment.
