Last year's conference
The fifth conference, co-hosted by the Council and the Hackney Cycling Campaign and sponsored by Steer Davies Gleave, was held on 10 June 2016. Two hundred people from the cycling world attended the convention where speakers, some from as far as Oslo, Norway shared advice and expertise.
The theme of the conference was cycling's role in the future transport mix, and delegates heard about cycling's potential to help resolve global as well as local issues including congestion, road traffic casualties, public health, air quality and economic resilience, and debated how best to achieve positive outcomes.
Delegates were treated to free valet bike parking and tune up courtesy of Cycle Confident and Cyclehoop.

The fourth annual Hackney cycling conference, co-hosted by Hackney Council and the London Cycling Campaign, was held on Friday, 5 June 2015.
More than 200 people from the cycling world attended the convention where speakers, some from as far as Mexico and the USA, shared advice and expertise.
The conference explored the arguments for investing in cycling and infrastructure, the need to engage with decision-makers; the need for smart software to design a world where everyone can cycle; and the need to make cycling mainstream.
There were also two free film screenings and outside the Town Hall, passers-by were able to try out parent-and-child-friendly bikes, thanks to demonstrations from the Hackney Cycling Campaign and local retailers.
The event was sponsored by Steer Davies Gleave, L&Q, and Transport Initiatives.
