People Pedal Power Event

• Do you care about people, planet and the future?
• Do you want to hold our decision makers and big corporations to account, and ask them to create the change our climate desperately needs?
• Do you want our fossil-fuel guzzling transport system to be reformed?
• Can you cycle a few miles?

If so, lets get the powerful message of climate action and people power to the critical decision makers at COP26. Join the #ride2COP26, a movement of individuals travelling to COP26 purely powered by ourselves and our trusty two-wheeled-steeds.
Rain of shine (you really can’t trust the Great British weather!) the ride will be full of colour and joy as individuals come together to create collective change and climate action.

One mile or 50, anyone is welcome to join the movement as we wind our way towards Glasgow in the weeks leading up to COP26 (31st Oct-12th November 2021). Think of it like a ‘tag team’ – people joining the ride for a few miles as it passes their area!

Members of MCC will join the ride at Warrington, riding onwards to Lancaster. For information contact Don Thompson theroost95@btinternet.com

Active Travel Protest Liverpool

Saturday 25 September 2021
12 noon

In eight years, 1118 cyclists and pedestrians have been killed or seriously injured in Liverpool. That’s one cyclist or pedestrian per road kilometre. While some new cycle lanes have been installed, they have not created a coherent network, while the dismantling of the West Derby cycle lane sends the wrong message about who is given priority in road safety planning.

The protest is to commemorate those injured and killed and to demand safer travel.

This is how it works: cycle or walk from across the city towards the Pier Head. Meet friends on the way, become a group, and show that you are cycling or walking for a reason (feel free to decorate your bike or bring a poster). Wear a purple top. Bring bells. All meet at the Pier Head at 12 noon on 25 September.

Show the city that we exist, that we matter and that we want to be able to use the roads and pavements safely, and that there are many who would love to use active travel if only – if only active travel was safe. For us, for our kids, for the climate, for our future.

Riverside Drive Protest


Thursday 24th October at 3.30pm
At the pelican crossing between Priory Wood and the entrance to Festival Gardens

Liverpool Council has decided to push ahead with plans to construct a dual carriageway along the route of Jericho Lane, Riverside Drive and Sefton Street. LCC has declared a Climate Emergency, but building a road will lead to more car journeys and will generate more carbon emissions. Air pollution will worsen in the area around the road.

This LCC report from 2018 was not presented to the public at consulations in 2019: https://liverpool.greenparty.org.uk/news/2019/09/13/south-liverpool-road-plan/
