« This is the 11th Veloforum in Ukraine, which we have organized together with our local partners. Each Veloforum provides representatives of local authorities, businesses and the NGO sector with an opportunity to study, to meet each other and to unite, so that they can make the bicycle a safe and convenient means of transportation, and Ukrainian cities — comfortable for their citizens. This is our contribution into the transportation policy, civil society development and sustainable local development», — U-Cycle director Anastasiia Makarenko
