Bidding for the ECF’s Velo-City 2020 cycling conference opens

Cities are now welcomed to bid for the 2020 installment of the ECF-organised Velo-City cycling conference – an annual meet of experts, representatives of associations, institutions, policy-makers and social agents, universities and companies.

Designed to offer a platform for best practice knowledge sharing prior conferences have helped deliver creative solutions to growing cycling’s modal share, from innovation, behavior-change programs, broad alliances- and any proposal that answers the question: What makes people adopt cycling in their everyday life?

The next host cities of the biggest global cycling summit should: 

  • Aim to be a global leader in sustainable mobility. We are not only interested in existing cycling conditions; we are looking for the vision and the commitment to improve cycling for everyone.
  • Share best practices with the international cycling community and raise awareness to their own citizens.
  • Aspire to build a long-term strategy for cycling. All former Velo-city host cities see a real increase in cycling figures.

What does the city gain?

  • Global visibility as a sustainable development leader.
  • Economic boost by the participation of the international cycling community.
  • Citizen engagement in cycling through sessions and events.
