Amazing Cycle Pilgrimage from Truro to Glasgow
Amazing Cycle Pilgrimage from Truro to Glasgow to highlight why faith matters at COP26.
On leaving Truro Cathedral on 2 September, Green Christian member and Way of Life Companion Euan McPhee completed his 700 mile cycle ride to Glasgow on Friday 17 September. You can read his facebook account here
Throughout his journey Euan has been posting a Facebook blog of his cycle trip, complete with photos, calling into Cathedrals on his way to hand over our Why Faith Matters at COP26 flyer and picking up the various Dioceses’ environmental statements / policies to show COP26 delegates what churches have been committing to with regard to tacking the impact of climate change.
Among the many cathedrals he has called in on along the way to Glasgow have been Truro, Exeter, Wells, Bristol, Gloucester, Worcester, Lichfield, Chester, Liverpool, Carlisle, Manchester and Glasgow.
He arrived in Glasgow at 17.30 on Friday 17 September and wrote in his blog: “All in one piece – including my bike! Absolutely amazing – not a single puncture in 700 miles of riding! And fantastic weather; only two days with any rain, and not much at that. It didn’t even start raining in Glasgow until I had checked into my hostel! So, the journey is over, but the campaigning is really only about to begin in earnest. Thank you everyone for all your prayers and expressions of support! Now to hold our Government to account to commit to real change, year on year as we move to zero carbon asap.”
Euan has become somewhat of a veteran of COP cycle rides, having previously travelled to Paris (COP21) and Bonn (COP23).

Well done Euan, I am glad that I was not the only one on the road this year(summer) doing the same thing. It would be good to get in touch. Blessings on your lobbying. John Kime
