I think this might be of interest to some:
Velo-city Global is the world’s premier international cycling planning conference. The four day event offers delegates from around the world a chance to share best practices for creating and sustaining cycling-friendly cities, where bicycles are valued as part of daily transport and recreation.
Rode the Golden Flandrian event the other weekend and couldn't believe I was the only UK rider in evidence. It's one of the most stunning events I've ever done, but pretty low-key, only 124 starters. It's not exactly a sportive - no marshals just a permanently signed route.
wanted to introduce you all to our wonderful charity cycle event planned for next August 2011.
The Big Life Ride is a 12 hour bike relay and our aim is to raise £1 million pounds for our charities:
Cancer Research UK
Macmillan Cancer Support
Rainbow's Children's Hospice
