Ride the Change, a fun and social bike ride from London to Glasgow in aid of inspiring action to tackle the climate crisis ahead of COP26, will see a core group of about 70 cyclists riding from London to Glasgow over a week with an additional 40-50 cyclists expected on individual days.

None of the cyclists are professionals, just a group of ordinary people who are passionate about climate change and aim to inspire others by raising support with climate action pledges - promises from people around the UK to take action to address climate change - rather than cash donations. The ride will also work to actively highlight climate action solutions, projects and groups that exist along the route.

The event is a collaboration between Possible, Do Nation, Brake the Cycle/Adventure Uncovered, and Arup with headline sponsor Abel & Cole, silver sponsor Symprove and bronze sponsors, Cayley Coughtrie and AECOM. This is the biggest ever ride that Do Nation and Adventure Uncovered have ever organised and groups from the 

NHS, Arup, Unilever, Brompton, AECOM, C-Capture, Leap Eco, CRA, Anthesis, Abel & Cole and Lego will be joining on legs of the journey as well.

COP26 provides a golden opportunity for people and organisations all around the country to make a change and have their voice heard on the issue of climate change. As the ride builds a network of like-minded individuals along its route, it will aim to show leaders and communities around the country how achievable generating grassroots climate action is and how vital it will be for our futures.

Hermione Taylor, Founder at Do Nation, one of the organisers, said:

“We're thrilled to have helped in organising this ride. As the impacts of climate change become increasingly apparent around the world, COP26 needs to be a turning point where policymakers take action. But it’s vital that people know the power that’s in their hands too. From everyday actions like driving less, joining community actions like tree planting, making small changes to diet or even lobbying their local representative, everyone can do their bit in the battle against climate change, it’s just a question of when.”
