May 1/12 9:47 am - Velo-city Opens with Velo Village on Salt Spring Island


Posted by Editoress on 05/1/12
 

Velo Village is celebrating rural cycling on June 21-23. Salt Spring Island, located in the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver and Vancouver Island, will be bicycle heaven on earth - the most welcoming place on the planet to be on a bike.

There will be fun, games and a knowledge exchange. In addition to bicycle-themed performances, art exhibits, workshops, and a specially chartered bicycle-only ferry on June 23rd, Velo Village will host a one-day conference focused on cycling and rural mobility.

As an official Velo-City 2012 Global pre-conference event, Velo Village will be bending over backwards to welcome the European Cyclists' Federation (ECF), and other Velo-city conference delegates. Come early, and enjoy the natural beauty Vancouver and British Columbia has to offer. ECF Secretary General Dr. Bernhard Ensink is already familiar with Salt Spring Island.

For more information, and help with planning your travel, visit the Velo Village website.
