As part of the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling 2013 there were a number of talks about different aspects of the bicycle and cycling (see below). We plan to have an equally inspiring range of talks in 2014.
Mikael Colville-Andersen, Copenhagen’s bicycle ambassador, will be talked about “Bicycle Culture by Design” – Considering Design as a Place Making Solution for Liveable Cities. This talk was sponsored by Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op. Photos here and here.
Mark Beaumont, Broadcaster, Adventurer, Author and Speaker, talked about his cycling and other adventures, at the The Queen’s Hall. This talk was sponsored by Alpine Bikes.

Juliana Buhring The Fastest Woman to Cycle the World, will be gave a talk about setting the first women’s world record for fastest circumnavigation of the world by bicycle, which she achieved just 152 days finishing in December last year. This talk was sponsored by Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op.
