Tomorrow kicks off Velo-city Global.
The 4-day conference has a packed schedule with lectures and workshops covering topics from the theoretical to more how-to sessions (e.g. building cycling advocacy capacity). It also has an extensive line up of exhibits: bike manufacturers; bike-related products, services and accessories, and cities promoting their bike friendliness.
For students the entire conference runs about $530 (meals included). If you're not in school though, the cost is almost $400/day.
If you miss it this year, in 2013 it'll be held in Vienna, Austria from June 11th-14th, perfect for an early summer getaway.
By the way, if you're in Vancouver and wondering how to get around by bike, try Ride the City - Vancouver.
(Ride the City is based on Open Street Map and is available in 39 cities worldwide.)
