Cycling Embassy of Denmark at the National Danish Cycling Conference

| May 30, 2016

logoTomorrow the annual National Danish Cycling Conference kicks off. This conference will be the 9th of its kind, and the biggest one to date, as more and more companies, municipalities, and organizations, join every year.

The conference ends Wednesday and the just two day long programme is packed with more than 30 events including talks, debates, and other bike rides. Members of the Cycling Embassy of Denmark are naturally strongly represented amongst both audience and speakers, as only seven of the presentations do not include members of the embassy.

You can read more about the conference here, and download the programmes here. Unfortunately these are only available in Danish, but we have translated the titles of the programme for non-Danish speakers below:
