Cycling is becoming a serious business – continue to be part of the emerging cycling economy.
The Asia-Pacific Cycle Congress (APCC) is the southern hemisphere’s premier cycle planning and industry conference, bringing together key cycling experts, researchers and enthusiasts from around the world. Held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 13 to 16 September 2015, this year’s APCC focused on the growing opportunities to ride the ‘pedal-powered economy’.
This years APCC kicked off on 13 September Sunday, 2015, with a mass bicycle ride through Brisbane CBD as part of Bicycles Welcome Here, the APCC bicycle fringe festival.
