Velo-city 2013 Vienna
The City of Vienna was hosting the Velo-city 2013 conference from 11-14 June 2013! „The Sound of Cycling – Urban Cycling Cultures“ assembled more than 1400 delegates from all continents for the largest cycling-themed conference to date.
“We are very proud that Vienna has hosted the world’s biggest Velo-city with the highest number of conference participants ever. And we are equally delighted about the adoption of a memorandum on cycling promotion that was signed by mayors from all over Europe as well as by the next Velo-city host, Stephen Yarwood, Lord Mayor of Adelaide. As the politicians responsible, we are convinced that investments in cycling infrastructure improvement and awareness-raising campaigns to promote cycling are worthwhile, because they render our cities even more liveable. The international exchange of know-how, visions and ideas at Velo-city provides the perfect basis to attain this goal”
Maria Vassilakou, Deputy Mayor of Vienna, during the Velo-city 2013 closing ceremony at Vienna City Hall.
