Germany welcomed us with rain and with roads full of climbs and descents.

But neither the weather nor the 1,150 m accumulated height could prevent us from bringing our Manifesto to the highest authorities of COP23, which opens its doors officially tomorrow.

At Bula Zone the numerous participants picking up their credentials have witnessed the arrival of our team, nineteen cyclists, among them Inia Seruiratu, Fiji’s High-level Climate Champion, Jochen Flasbarth, State Secretary at Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety and Patricia Espinosa, Secretary General of the UN Framework Convention on Climante Change.

Today we have reached the almost 800 km of our journey for awareness and action against climate change. The Executive Secretary’s words, who joined the end of the leg and welcomed the cyclists at the entrance to COP23, could not be more appropriate.

“It is amazing to see so many people coming from Paris using low-emission electric bicycles. As the UN Climate Change process moves from Paris to Bonn and into the future, this should inspire us all to seek a path forward where our emissions are reduced, we embrace the technology that enables this shift and we raise awareness for the need for a deep transformation of societies. We all need to be moving for climate now – further, faster, together”
