You may be aware that the international Velo-city conference, the largest bicycle related conference in the world, was held in Dublin this June. The conference, which took place over 4 full days with nearly 1,400 delegates, ranged across many topics, from bicycle safety, cycling infrastructure, bicycle innovations, the social and cultural changes driven by cycling on a global scale, technology, health, behavioural change, urban and infrastructure policies, to mobility and transport generally. It was a very successful conference both in local and global terms.
