What about women as cyclists at Velo-city 2017?
Benoit Beroud, Mobility Designed for All consultant at Mobiped, attended, the World Cycling Congress, which occurred in Nijmegen (Netherlands) last June. He shares his notes and comments with World Streets after reflection some inspiring thoughts about women and cycling in their day-to-day lives.
“First impression was given by pictures of the website, program (see above), and flyers of the conference: set of various women cycling. And it is not a misleading advertisement.”
Events: Getting ready for Taiwan 2017 Collaborative Mission

The ConferenceBike: Showing you other ways to look at your city.
On the assumption that your plans may not have you in Brussels on Monday in time to join the meeting, but that you are nonetheless interested to follow the event and what might come out of it, this is an invitation for you to join the event as an “auditor”. In this capacity, all you need to do is sign in here and let us know of your interest. You will then receive the latest version of the brainstorming piece as will be discussed during the peer review session, working notes and observations of the participants, and a copy of the final wrap up report about a week later with, hopefully, a certain number of followup steps or proposals. This will also give you an opportunity for comments and critical views which will be shared with the participants and other auditors (if we have your permssiion to do so).
