Africa to Velo-city
One Street has been discussing various ways to ensure that more African-born bicycle advocacy leaders can attend the annual Velo-city conference in order to share their experiences at this important international gathering. Velo-city 2013 in Vienna was our first attempt and we hope that future Velo-city conferences will see even greater success. If you have ideas for making this happen, please contact us.
In 2011 and 2012 we called this program City to Velo-city and partnered with the European Cyclists’ Federation (ECF) to offer partial scholarships to the most committed bicycle advocates in Prescott, Arizona, One Street's home base. In the summer of 2012 we shifted the program to assist our African colleagues because their innovative and courageous expertise in bicycle initiatives will bring such great value to the conference.
