"Showing how cycling can be a future maker"

Bernhard Ensink, Secretary-General of the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF)

Today Velo-city 2015, the world summit on cycling, kicks off in Nantes. What is it about?
The motto of this year’s Velo-city conference is “Cycling: Future Maker”. Cycling is without a doubt going to play a role in the future of transportation and our society in general.
