Stephen Yarwood


Lord Mayor of Adelaide, Australia

The youngest Lord Mayor in Adelaide’s history, Stephen Yarwood has dedicated his professional life to developing better cities. He is working to make Adelaide a modern, vibrant and sustainable place to do business, live and enjoy life.

Stephen regards cycling as integral to Adelaide’s ambition to be a world-class city. Adelaide is pioneering the resurgence of cycling in Australia, due in no small part to the outstanding success of hosting the Tour Down Under, a UCI WorldTour professional race.

Stephen believes Adelaide is well on its way to becoming the best cycling city in the Southern Hemisphere, with its Mediterranean climate, extensive park lands and wide, flat roads. In addition, Adelaide is currently rolling out its biggest ever Bicycle Action Plan.

Stephen is proud that Adelaide has been chosen host of Velo-City Global 2014 and encourages you to come ‘Down Under’ for this event.
