Velo-city is the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF)’s annual global summit on cycling. Velo- city is an ECF brand. The Velo-city conference series serves as the major global platform for the exchange of visions, knowledge, expertise skills and good practice on cycling as part of daily transport, recreation and on cycling related policies. More specifically, Velo-city promotes the integration of urban cycle planning into all the relevant public policy sectors, including transport planning, land development, public health, education, environment, economy, energy and human rights. Situated at the crossroads of Eurovelo bike routes 6 and 1, two major cyclo-tourism routes, Nantes met four key objectives as it hosted the last Velo-city event from 2 to 5 June 2015:

  • Create a replicable model dedicated to regional cities
  • Build on the strengths and weaknesses of the Nantes experience and other French cities
  • Reach out to the world
  • Create a future inspired by cycling
