Join Me On Sunday – Wherever You Are

This Sunday I’ll be dashing around the streets of Yerevan on my bike, furiously trying to film a bicycle demonstration that I’ve been organising for the last few weeks, together with a group of local cyclists, as part of the Ride Planet Earth project.

Kim Ngyuen’s been cycling from Australia and is poised to arrive in Copenhagen for a couple of weeks of demonstrations during the COP15 UN climate summit, during which he’s planning to air footage from rides in cities all over the world.

Copenhagen looks set to be packed out with pressure groups and activists from all over the world. A reminder of the priorities of the world’s citizens could go a long way here.

In the unlikely event that you find yourself in Yerevan this weekend, you’re invited to join me and the rest of Yerevan’s cycling community (small, but growing!). If you don’t have a bike, we have procured a number which can be borrowed on a first-come, first-served basis. View a Google Map of the proposed route.

After 15 months on the road, Kim took time out a few days ago to record this final call to action:

Participate Now!

Even if you’re not in Armenia, there’s almost definitely a Ride Planet Earth bike ride happening in your area on Sunday, from Edinburgh to East Timor.  Find out more and get in touch at these links. If you care about this planet, and you haven’t fallen for the denialists’ so-called arguments, get on your bike and make a statement to COP15 – as well as meeting new people and getting a good bit of exercise!
