About Velo-city

Velo-city is widely considered as the premier worldwide annual cycling summit, serving as a global knowledge exchange platform.


It brings together all those who are involved in the policy, promotion and provision for cycling, active mobility and sustainable urban development. The aim of the conference is to influence decision makers in favour of more active and sustainable mobility and to inspire vibrant discussions between conference delegates.


Since the Velo-city series began in 1980, it has played a valuable part in promoting cycling as a sustainable and healthy means of transport for all. The conference exhibition showcases the latest innovations and joyful experiences one can only experience by bike!

Main theme

Cycle Diversity reveals itself in a variety of circumstances, political contexts, climates, natural or human-built environments with cyclists of all ages, backgrounds and genders, and with all types of bicycles, used for different purposes. 


We must take advantage of cycle diversity to address the inequities of our cities and mitigate their effects by increasing access to bicycle use for all.
