Sustainability & cycle promotion on the agenda for second UCI Mobility & Bike City Forum

Building on the success of UCI’s inaugural Bike City Forum last year, the event is returning for a second time on 12th November, hosted in Paris City Hall.

This year the event will focus on several themes, including the UCI’s tools to promote Cycling for All and best practices in enhancing the impact of international cycling events on local mobility and tourism. Case studies of strategies implemented in Paris and France to promote cycling will also be shared, alongside tools to promote safe, active and sustainable cities.

The Forum will also discuss the ‘mobility mix’ of the future, a hot topic of discussion at the present moment with the potential rise of e-Scooters amongst other things.

An array of global leaders and experts from across the spectrum of cycling promotion have been assembled for the event, including keynote speakers Amanda Ngabirano of the World Cycling Alliance, and Philippe Crist representing the International Transport Forum/OECD.

They will be joined by speakers from a host of international organisations, including: Cycling Embassy of Denmark, the Bikeability Trust, the French Cycling Federation, British Cycling, PeopleForBikes and the International Transport Forum, among others.

The following day (13th November) is specifically for UCI Bike Cities and Regions, putting on workshops and visits of Paris’ cycling infrastructures.

The event is organised as part of UCI’s commitment to develop cycling across the globe as both a sport and everyday activity under its advocacy programme.
