Some key projects of the ECF
Velo-city is the premier international cycling planning conference series. The event is designed to encourage cycling as part of daily transport and recreation.
The event traditionally attracts around 1,000 delegates and brings together those involved in policy, promotion and provision of cycling facilities and programs. Engineers, planners, architects, social marketers, academic researchers, environmentalists and industry representatives join forces with government at all levels ranging from municipal politicians, policy makers and educators in knowledge sharing and building effective trans-national partnerships to deliver benefits worldwide.

Running until May 2014 and involving 15 countries, the EU-funded project CycleLogistics aimed to reduce energy used in urban freight transport by replacing unnecessary motorised vehicles with bikes for intra-urban delivery and goods transport in Europe. The project has helped establish the European Cycle Logistics Federation after recognising a demand for such an organisation.
Information about the project is available at www.cyclelogistics.eu and about the federation https://federation.cyclelogistics.eu.
