Support The Carbon Cycle – Dougal Wilson and friends’ 260 mile bike ride to the Copenhagen Climate Summit
Dougal, Lorraine and Lucy will set out from the Stop Climate Chaos demonstration in London on Saturday December 5th, and plan to arrive in Copenhagen seven days later, in time to attend the UN Climate Change Conference rally that happens towards the end of the seven-day Summit.
"We decided to try and raise cash for two charities - one which does sustainable stuff 'on the ground', and one which campaigns against the cause of climate change," Dougal explains.
Friends of the Earth are committed to the conservation, protection and improvement of the environment, and are campaigning to persuade governments, councils, businesses and individuals to reduce their CO2 emissions - "vital if we are to prevent runaway climate change," Dougal points out - while Re~Cycle: Bicycle Aid For Africa's mission is to collect secondhand bicycles and ship them to Africa, then distributing bikes and teach riders the skills to repair and maintain them. Their bikes also help health/AIDS workers reach remote villages and even provide an ambulance service in remote Namibia.
