Event Details

What is  Velo-City?

The European Cycling Federation organises a Velo-City conference every year for professionals active in the bicycle advocacy world. Every second year, the event takes place outside Europe. This year, about 800 professionals met in Vancouver. They talked cycling advocacy, cycling safety, bike share problems and a lot more. 


Who participated?

Several people from the Ottawa area participated in Velo-City, either as a speaker or as a participant only.

Citizens for Safe Cycling found Robert Greenwood and Colin Simpson of the city of Ottawa, Jamie Stuckless of Green Communities Canada, Pascale Laliberté of the National Capital Commission and Catherine Henry of MP Olivia Chow's Office willing to talk about their experiences, what they liked and didn't like, what they learned and which ideas they took back home to Ottawa.


Why an event in Ottawa?

It is a great opportunity to get together to listen to new ideas that were presented in Vancouver and to socialise with cycling leaders in our community who will share their knowledge with us.


Where do we meet?

We will meet at Causeway Work Centre in Hintonburg, where we rent our office space. If the weather is nice we'll sit outside, if the weather doesn't cooperate, we'll meet in the building's cafeteria. We'll take care of some snacks and juice.
