The Velo-city conferences are largely regarded as the world reference in terms of urban cycling policies. They are held every other year in Europe and will settle this year in Nantes, France, from June 2nd to June 5th 2015.

Our idea is to ride to Nantes and show up during the event with a lot of velomobiles. We put forward velomobile cause we believe that cycle infrastructures should be designed taking into account the constraints and the capabilities of velomobiles.

The program of the Velo-city Velomobile Tour is the following:
- together ride along the Loire river between Angers and Nantes on June 2nd (100 km flat)
- showing up in town at Nantes and joining the welcome drink around 6:00 PM on June 2nd
- big bicycle parade in Nantes on June 3rd where the organizers expect 1500 to 2000 cycling people.

Once in Nantes, we will also propose optional tours on June 3rd and 4th to visit the area.

So far 18 French, Swiss and English people said they would join. If you want to help us showing a lot of velomobiles (!), please register using the following form:

The event is free. Everybody has to care for his own route and accomodation.

FYI, once in Nantes, most people will stay at the camp site (http://www.nantes-camping.fr/en/)

Note: we will communicate on velomobiles but recumbents are welcome!
