who is committed to being there, and others who are recommending you attend this important event
Andy Clarke, president of the League of American Bicyclists, a veteran of 11 previous Velo City conferences, is part of conference organizing team and will be the master of ceremonies in Copenhagen.

Sam Adams, Mayor of Portland, Ore. is encouraging a strong delegation from his city to attend – to continue learning the intricate details of bikeway design and catch more of Copenhagen’s cycling culture.
Daniel “Scotty” Murdoch is a New York-based partner in the prestigious Patton Boggs law firm and a frequent visitor to Copenhagen – he especially wants you all to explore the beautiful countryside and smaller towns of Denmark that are tailor-made for bike touring.
Cara Seiderman, bicycle program manager for the city of Cambridge, Mass. also has first-hand experience living in the city and has used that inspiration to good effect in Cambridge – you’ll want to stick close to her on any of the local tours; she knows a word or two of Danish.
Eric Gilliland, executive director of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association has already committed to being in Copenhagen so he can compare one national capital city to another… DC had better shape up before his return!
