Pedal for Paris to galvanise the sport and physical activity sector to step up its work in tackling climate change

Pedal for Paris to galvanise the sport and physical activity sector to step up its work in tackling climate change

Ahead of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, Sport England chair Chris Boardman will take part in an eight-day bike ride from Manchester to Paris, to galvanise the sport and physical activity sector to step up its work in tackling climate change.

Starting at the National Cycling Centre in Manchester on 16 July and finishing in Paris on 23 July, Chris Boardman will be joined by multi-Olympic medallist and UK Sport chair Katherine Grainger and a host of other high-profile participants.

Pedal for Paris references not just the host city for this summer’s Olympics and Paralympics but also the Paris Agreement, the landmark international treaty on climate change signed in December 2015.

The aim of the ride is to urge greater action to limit global warming to well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, and encourage our sector to accelerate action in pursuit of this goal.

It follows the launch of Every Move, Sport England's ambitious strategy to promote environmental sustainability, including more than £40 million of new funding to promote green innovation and participation, and helping sport and physical activity organisations become more resilient to climate change.

Going for Green Pledge

To turn each revolution of the pedals into tangible action, on route, the group will gather commitments from community sports clubs and organisations in the form of Going for Green Pledges, commitments to become more environmentally sustainable.

Sport England is asking sport and physical activity organisations across the country to sign the Going for Green Pledge, committing to new ways to become more sustainable.

We are pleased to have signed the pledge, and as part of our commitment to supporting the sport and physical activity sector in Lincolnshire to become more environmentally sustainable we're encouraging clubs and sport and physical activity organisations in Lincolnshire to do the same.

The pledge asks organisations to commit to being environmentally sustainable by:

  • reducing energy and water usage
  • champion walking, cycling and lift sharing when travelling to activities
  • drastically reduce reliance on single use plastics
  • recycling waste and increasing the reuse of sports equipment and kit
  • boosting activity to nurture nature and wildlife.
