The talented More Than Minutes joined us to capture the conference in a unique way – by illustrating it! Rather than a more traditional recording or note-taking, we wanted to bring Bikeability to life and reflect the wonderful, varied industry and discussions of the conference. We hope you love it as much as we do.

Take a look at the final illustration here.
