Welcome to this year’s adventure in which the four Climate Visioneers from the South West who Pedalled to Paris in 2015, and who became the three who carried On to Bonn in 2017 and then the two who did a Big Ride for Palestine in 2018 are all getting together and back on the road to join the Extinction Rebellion in London in April.
But this time there are more riders – collectively the Rebel Riders of the Ecopocalypse. Euan, Roger and Ewan set off from Falmouth on 8th April. We pick up a couple more (to be confirmed) as we travel through Cornwall and then join with Ricky in Barnstaple. On to Taunton where Marguerite and others are joining the growing band, and thence to Frome over in the East of the South West to collect some more before the final stages to London.
Arriving in the big city on the evening of Sunday 14th April we will be there as events unfold from 15th April – this could be a big one, part of an international movement of direct action targeting our failed political class and the exploitative extractive destructive system that controls them.
We call for nothing less than a reversal of current priorities – global consumerism is killing us all (and us includes all living things, not just humans) and must be urgently stopped.
As our personal pilgrimages into the heart of the beast unfold we will endeavour to tell our stories here.
