A ride that matters - join Kate's Climate Cycle in Norwich!
Beryl, powered by National Grid and Norfolk County Council, are excited to be supporting Climate Cycle, Kate Strong’s 3,000 mile climate cycle, on a bamboo bike, around Britain.
On 6th June, Kate Strong - world champion triathlete and climate activist - will be arriving in Norwich on the first leg of her cycle for the planet.
On her 3-month adventure, Kate will be visiting sustainable projects around the country aiming to inspire the nation into action around climate change. She will be talking with people, communities, organisations, charities and councils about what they’re doing to mitigate climate change.
We’re delighted that Kate is stopping at Norwich and is partnering with Berl, powered by National Grid and Norfolk County Council! Together we’ll be running activities, workshops and talks to support our shared mission of inspiring climate action.
