Global cycling conference: Velo-city 2019 in Dublin

Dublin is hosting this year’s Velo-city conference and with it over 1,000 experts and activists helping cycle traffic to achieve the significance and attention it deserves. From 25 to 29 June the summit of the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) will offer a diversified expert programme. Cycle Competence Austria is contributing to that. Yesterday it was officially announced that the next Velo-city Conference 2020 will be close to Austria in Ljubljana, as Mexico City has withdrawn its place.

The Velo-city conference which had taken place in Vienna in 2013 is the world’s largest conference on cycle traffic. The platform CycleCompetence Austria will have a presentation booth, offer a range of presentations and also provide the main price for the conference raffle: A folding bike from our CycleCompetence member VELLO. On our Twitter channel @CycleCompetence we will be offering continuous updates from the conference.
