Past event
Velo-city Global is the world’s premier international cycling planning conference.

The four day event offers delegates from around the world a chance to share best practices for creating and sustaining cycling-friendly cities, where bicycles are valued as part of daily transport and recreation.

The conference theme Cities in Motion will spotlight communities that are enabling and encouraging people of all ages to choose cycling as a daily form of active transportation and recreation.

We encourage all cities and regions around the world - small, medium and large - to share how they are creating healthy, livable, inclusive, vibrant green communities through cycling and enhancements to the built environment that are both supportive of and enabled by embracing cycling as an integral component of combined, sustainable and smart mobility.
