Velo-city Global is the world’s premier international cycling conference. Delegates from around the world have the opportunity to share best practices for creating and sustaining cycling-friendly cities where bicycles are valued as part of daily transport and recreation.
In 2014 Velo-city Global is coming to Adelaide! Did you know that Adelaide is ranked in world’s top 10 cities to visit by Lonely Planet in 2014?
Keynote speakers at Velo-city Global 2014 Adelaide will include those who have successfully transformed some of the world’s biggest cities including New York Transport Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan, Copenhagenize CEO Mikael Colville-Anderson and Ethan Kent, Vice President, Project for Public Spaces.
The conference has an anticipated attendance of around 800 international and local delegates from a range of industries including health & fitness, tourism, local government, recreation, transport, sustainability, and engineering.
In addition to the conference, Velo-fringe is Adelaide’s newest festival. Held from 18-30 May 2014, in the lead up to the Velo-city Global Conference, it will be a celebration of bikes and cycling.
If you’ve got an idea for a bike-related event – a ride, a tour, a talk, an exhibit, a debate, etc – you can take part, simple as that. There is a small registration fee and that gets you a listing on the Velo-fringe website and in the programme, plus assistance in finding a venue if you need it. It’s a great opportunity to spread the good news about cycling.
