This Sunday, December 6, Kunming will be one of many cities around the world where people will ride bicycles to show their solidarity with the environmental movement in the runup to global climate change summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, which begins the following day.

The ride will be roughly 35 kilometers of essentially flat road. Participants will head out westwards along Renmin Xi Lu, then turn southwards toward Dianchi Lake, before crossing a causeway to the Haigeng area and joining Dianchi Lu to head back into town. The route returns riders to Kunming Stadium after roughly 2.5 hours. Google Earth users can download a KMZ file here.
In addition to the Kunming ride, there will be Ride Planet Earth events on Sunday in Melbourne, Ho Chi Minh City, Shanghai, Manila, Belgrade, Barcelona, London, Milan, Paris, New York City, Cairo and other major cities around the world.
Riders interested in participating are encouraged to bring their own bikes and helmets. If you don't have a bicycle, there will be a limited number available on loan.© Copyright 2005-2020 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
