Velo-city 2021


After an inspiring Velo-city conference in Dublin (Ireland), Lisbon (Portugal) will be the host of Velo-city 2021. Join the global cycling summit from 6-9 September 2021 and explore the theme "Cycle Diversity".

The conference 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.

About Velo-city
