City to Velo-city 2011

Thanks to all our donors and helpers who made our fundraising for this trip such a great success!  With the donations, auction, raffle, T-shirt and beer sales we raised over $3,000!

Velo-city_trip_logo_smallStarting in Amsterdam, we met the advocates and government officials who helped make this city the top-ranked bicycle city of the world with nearly fifty percent of all trips made by bicycle. We then traveled to Sevilla, Spain to participate in the international Velo-city ConfeVelo-city_2011rence. 

The location of Sevilla for this longstanding conference series was particularly inspiring because just three years ago this city had virtually no people bicycling, much like Prescott. But after three years of successful bicycle initiatives, they now enjoy six percent of all trips made by bicycle—one of the most impressive leaps of any city in the world.

Both of these themes were  particularly beneficial for the ambassadors and their work to makIMG_5023e Prescott more bicycle friendly. Read more about the course and our fundraising efforts in this Daily Courier article, the local Prescott newspaper.

Prescott ambassadors who qualified for these scholarships were responsible for booking their own flights and lodging and registering for the conference in order to request a reimbursement from this fund. We also worked with our partners in the U.S. and Europe to lower some of these costs.
