Velo-city Global, scheduled to take place June 26 to 29, 2012, in beautiful Vancouver, BC, is the world’s premier international cycling planning conference. The four-day event offers delegates from around the world a chance to share best practices for creating and sustaining cycling-friendly cities where bicycles are valued as part of daily transport and recreation.

The Velo-city Global conference unites politicians, engineers, planners, architects, social marketers, academics, researchers, environmentalists, advocates, educators and industry representatives. Delegates join forces and foster transnational collaboration. The event also draws experts from related areas, such as health, economics and the environment.

Published five times a year, Momentum Magazine focuses on cycling as transportation, providing a perfect complement for one of the key themes of Velo-city Global 2012: growing cycling transportation mode share globally. Momentum also highlights bike culture in North America while providing positive and solutions-based editorial coverage, including arts & culture, city and people profiles, style, food, current events and gear.

Velo-city Global 2012 is expected to host over 1,000 delegates from around the world. The conference will be held June 26 -29 at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Center Hotel, accessible by the new Hornby Street separated bike lane.
