Published February 23, 2016

TAIPEI, Taiwan (BRAIN) — Josh Hon, the founder and team captain of Tern Bicycles, will deliver a talk on "Accelerating the Goal of Sustainable Transportation in Asia" at the Velo-city Global 2016 conference, behind this weekend and early next week in Taipei.  Hon's presentation will be next Tuesday. 

Hon said Tern, a Taipei-based folding bike brand, offers unique lessons for designing products that help urban transportation scale sustainably.

"Folding bikes amplify public transportation by extending the range of accessibility," says Hon. "When people commute intermodally, cities can be re-imagined. Whether that means parking spaces turned into parks, or lean yet efficient public transit networks, folding bikes catalyze innovative thinking about urban planning and governance. We're excited to meet with other transportation advocacy leaders, to share inspiration for building a sustainable future."

Tern has worked with government leaders and business people throughout the world to encourage sustainable transportation. 

Hon will participate in a Velo-city panel that also includes Claus Fleischer, the CEO of Bosch eBike Systems, and Han Wu, CEO of Design Capital 2016.

Other industry speakers at Velo-city include Armin Landgraf, the director of Pon Bicycle Group; Antony Lo, the chairman of Taiwan Bicycle Association and president of Giant Bicycle; John Burke, the president of Trek; and Robbert de Kock, the secretary general of the World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry. 

The Velo-city conference is being held immediatly prior to the Taipei Cycle Show, which opens next Wednesday.
