May 31/12 20:48 pm - Invitation to the Founding Meeting of a National Cycling Organization

Invitation to the Founding Meeting of a National Cycling Organization at Velo-city conference, June 25, 2012

For the past three years cycling association leaders and professionals across Canada have been engaged in a consensus process leading to the formation of a National Cycling Organization to represent cycling activities such as commuting, touring and recreation.

The purpose of this not-for-profit and non-partisan organization includes working with federal and national agencies to advance a national cycling strategy and to develop new funding sources for infrastructure and programs – with local and regional groups – to significantly increase support for cycling organizations and initiatives throughout Canada.

Other potential services include sharing of information and expertise, co-ordinating local and regional proposals, increasing public cycling capacity and progressive policies and guidelines. On behalf of this new national group the British Columbia Cycling Coalition is hosting a halfday founding national meeting scheduled from

8:00 am to 12:00 pm, June 25, 2012, in the Port McNeil Room, 4th floor, North Tower of the Wall Centre, 1088 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC.

The meeting is in conjunction with the Velo-city 2012 international cycling conference.

Cycling advocates, experts and practitioners are invited to attend or call in. We are expecting representatives from cycling organizations, industry and government. Conference call-in capability will be provided – details to follow.

RSVP appreciated. Please go to gvcc.bc.ca

National Meeting Committee:

Richard Campbell
Jack Becker
Michael Haynes
Arne Elias
