Velo-City, the world's premier bicycle-planning conference, is making its way to Adelaide later on this month for the 2014 meeting.
Yes a bicycle planning conference here Down Under ... where peeps will be chatting about utility cycling, cycling for transport, shopping on bikes, picnic-ing on bikes ... hehehehehe
And Mikael, of Copenhagenize fame, is coming to deliver a keynote address ... and apparently to not ride a bicycle whilst here in Australia because if there's one thing he doesn't do it's ride a bicycle in a land of helmets!!! Funtimes!
Meanwhile I'm planning the opposite and intend to ride all round Adelaide.
Oh dear, it's kind of awkward though ...
Velo-City inevitably attracts a big global media spotlight and here we'll be, showing off our cycling wares to the world despite those wares having to include the daftness of Australian helmet laws, and the even more daftness of Australian meekness in the face of helmet compliance for over 20 years.
