Velo-City Vienna 2013 to feature Mobycon consultant

Equal access to public space is an issue that has fascinated Angela van der Kloof since university where she studied education and human geography. In her experience, the bicycle is a tool for stimulating participation and integration in society and creating an environment that is social and accessible for all. Angela has been teaching immigrant women to cycle in her hometown of Tilburg, The Netherlands since the 1990s. She is the creator of a successful program entitled “Cycling Friends” in which enthusiastic cyclists support beginning cyclists by riding together. She will share the lessons learned through this experience during a podium speech at Velo-City 2013.

Velo-City Vienna: The Sound of Cycing Urban Cycling Cultures will take place June 11 through 14. This conference organized by the City of Vienna and the European Cyclists’ Federation http://www.ecf.com/ is a global communication and information platform aimed at addressing decision makers in order to improve the planning and provision of infrastructure for the everyday use of bicycles in urban environments.
