We've been so busy organising our quiz night that was held last Friday night, and was a raging sucess, that we've missed out on relaying the news that the first of the keynote speakers at the Velo-City conference to be held in Adelaide next May were announnced.
Janette Sadik-Khan, New York City's Department of Transportation Commissioner; placemaking expert, Ethan Kent, Vice President, Project for Public Spaces (PPS) and blogger, Mikael Colville-Anderson, CEO of Copenhagenize. Three speakers that are well known experts on the subject of urban cycling but will be also be interesting to hear their take on Adelaide.
Adelaide Lord Mayor and conference host, Stephen Yarwood said, "The three speakers have brought about significant change in cities throughout the world, including converting some of the busiest parts of New York City to pedestrian and cyclist zones, building the cycling culture that Copenhagen is now famous for, and working to support Placemaking projects and organisations around the world."
