Velo-city Global 2012
25 July 2012
Lord Mayor Stephen Yarwood returns from the world’s premier cycling planning conference, inspired about Adelaide’s cycling future.
Velo-city Global, held in Vancouver, Canada, last month brought together politicians, government planners and academics to discuss best practice for creating and sustaining cycling-friendly cities.
Stephen’s keynote speech focused on the City of Adelaide’s integrated approach to transport planning, which aims to make cycling an attractive option for travelling into and around the city.
“City transport should be about choice and sustainability,” Stephen said.
