Velo-city is ECF’s annual global summit on cycling. Velo-city is an ECF brand. The Velo-city conference series serves as the major global platform for the exchange of visions, knowledge, expertise skills and good practice on cycling as part of daily transport and recreation and on cycling related policies. More specifically, Velo-city promotes the integration of urban cycle planning into all the relevant public policy sectors, including transport planning, land development, public health, education, environment, economy, energy and human rights.
ECF selects host cities for the Velo-city conferences and co-hosts the events.

ECF’s mission is: ‘More people cycling, more often!’ by dissemination, capacity building, networking and stimulating the development of cycling, building capacity for advocacy at the international level, education and training, organizing events and running networks.
