Velo Exchange is the key networking hub for delegates, exhibitors and sponsors at the Adelaide Convention Centre during Velo-city Global Adelaide 2014.
Morning and afternoon teas and lunches are served in Velo Exchange, with a program that includes presentations at each break time in the ‘think tank’. Exhibitors are located in Velo Exchange along with booths hosted by some of our key sponsors and partners. Dedicated networking areas and a special message board are there to help delegates connect with each other. Smart boards will display the latest conference photographs and outcomes from Learnshop sessions.

Building a picture of bicycle transport corridors from user generated travel data.
Like most car dominated cities, Adelaide’s road network is a sprawling series of arterial and non-arterial (quiet local streets) roads. The challenge for transport planners is getting accurate, real-time travel data that builds a picture of where bicycles are travelling, how often, for how long and potentially why. While there is ample technology (mobile apps) that allows users to log their rides, the challenge is more about how to recruit, engage and reward participants to contribute to a long term personal travel behaviour program.
This Think Tank sees to draw out the behaviour triggers that can be used to develop an effective engagement program that will be piloted in Adelaide.
Wheel Women Ride! Tina McCarthy
Hear how ‘Wheel Women’ has successfully generated behaviour change to get more women riding bikes. And be inspired by Tina McCarthy’s story…
'Wheel Women’ has been running for just over a year, and in that short space of time has managed to engage hundreds of women across Australia (and the world) with their approach. So what is it that they have done to change the way women feel about riding? What’s resonating with so many women to get them back on their bikes?
Tina McCarthy is a Level 1 AustCycle Coach and recipient of Cycling Victoria's Women of Change Award. In recognition of her work, Wheel Women has won the Department of Community Sport and Recreation’s Welcome & Inclusive Award. Tina had spent the best part of 25 years as a designer until Wheel Women took over her life. Realising the joys of cycling a little later in life Tina set about creating a place where all women feel welcome on their bikes after she realised that she was not alone in feeling a little intimidated by the 'cycling world'. She quit her design job, set up a riding group and is now coaching and engaging women across Australia in the joys and freedom a bike can bring.
