Ride Planet Earth (Manila)


Ride Planet Earth (Manila)
“Reduce
CO2 Emissions:
Start Cycle Change, Stop Climate Change”


  • On 6th December ’09 cyclists around the globe will take to the streets, demonstrating the capacity and willingness of ordinary people to take action against climate change.
  • The next day in Copenhagen, 7th December ’09 the COP15 negotiations begin. Ride Planet Earth aims to help convince the governments meeting there to take immediate action.
  • Participants can record video messages to send to the COP15, stating not only why action is necessary, but also what they will be doing about it personally, to show that if governments don’t take the lead, ordinary people will.


  • The event began as a solo bicycle journey by Kim Nguyen from Brisbane, Australia to Copenhagen, to collect messages from people already effected by climate change.
  • Over the course of the journey a movement developed such that there are now rides occuring on every continent bar Antarctica.

Global warming is the biggest threat the human race has ever faced.

It will affect every one of us, and our future children.

On Monday the 7th of December 2009, the world’s governments – including that of the Philippines – will meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, to decide what to do about it.

On Sunday the 6th of December, Manila will join major cities all over the world to let their governments know that the world is watching.

We will take to the streets on bicycles at 3:30pm, starting from Araneta Center Cubao, and we invite you to join us.

The meeting at Copenhagen will probably yield the most important environmental decision that will ever have been made. Let’s make sure it’s the right one!
