Rural Cycling Focus
Inspired by the themes of community well-being, capacity and connectivity, conference participants will discuss common challenges, exchange good practices, share community-based success stories and apply lessons learned. Decision-makers, planners, advocates and citizens will be encouraged to view rural communities as strategic meet-me points – first mile investments - in the development of seamless rural/urban cycling networks.
Conference presentations will highlight activities that increase, improve or enhance rural cycling experiences and support links between community-based requirements and regional pedestrian and cycling master plans. Specifically, Velo Village participants will collaboratively engage the Salish Sea Statements on Cycling & Rural Mobility, a solutions road-map for interfacing city and rural cycling interests and investments. » Read more: Velo Village 2012 (Salt Spring Island)
