Velo-City Global 2012 Mayoral Interviews

By Sarah Ripplinger

Velo-city Global will run from June 26 to 29, 2012, and Momentum couldn’t be more excited to be in the host city!

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson.

The biannual conference brings together over 1,000 politicians, engineers, planners, architects, social marketers, academics, researchers, environmentalists and activists from around the globe to discuss the most current city biking issues.

This year’s conference is situated in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia – the first time that the global arm of the conference series will be held in a North American city.
