IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE DANISH EMBASSY, MAY 2009
Velorbis was proud to be involved with the COP15 Cycling Tour of Japan. As you know, we fully support urban sustainability initiatives and the push towards carbon-conscious transportation alternatives. Therefore we were exceptionally pleased to assist our friends at the Danish Embassy and the Dreams on Wheels exhibition by providing Velorbis bicycles to be used for the tour throughout the main cities of Japan.
Organized by the Embassy of Denmark in Tokyo and the Japan Cycling Association, the aim of the tour was to carry the message of sustainability and responsibility for the environment from Kyoto to Copenhagen, where a new framework will be established atCOP15; the forthcoming UN Climate Change Conference in December 2009.
At each location there were events and exhibitions focusing on cycling, sustainable development and climate change. Velorbis classic bicycles such as Churchill Balloon and Scrap Deluxe, and other leading Danish bike brands were on display.
