Now that we’re recovered from our jet lag, let’s follow up on our previous Velo-City Global blogging, by presenting some of the other good coverage of the event that’s out there. Our good friend, prolific blogger, and cycling ambassador to Copenhagen, Mikael Colville-Andersen, commented the Friday of the conference that he hadn’t even had a chance to check his email all week, let alone blog.
Excuses aside, we tried to document many of the activities by camera. Check out our Flickr page to see some of the sights.
New(ish) bloggers on the block Community Powered Cycling did a good job of highlighting many of the main plenary speakers of the week including John Whitelegg, Jan Gehl, Gil Penalosa, Connie Hedegaard, Mikael Colville-Anderson and my personal favorite, Vandana Shiva.
The exclamation point on the end of the Velo City Global coverage has to be the StreetFilms video Cycling Copenhagen, Through North American Eyes. Let the scenes of Copenhagen cycling and the enthusiasm of advocacy and city leaders from around the U.S and Canada inspire you to get out and enjoy cycling this weekend.
