Title: Cycling for Libraries is a politically and economically independent international unconference bringing together librarians, library lovers and bicycles to engage in library advocacy across borders.   Since 2011, participants have sought to raise the profile of libraries by public visibility outside of the confines of the library walls. Each year a week is spent cycling and visiting a range of different localities and libraries.  Last year Phil Segall joined 100 international colleagues from over 20 countries on a 400km route Amsterdam to Brussels and will be sharing share his experiences at this Informal.

When not cycling and networking with international colleagues Phil works  as an Information Assistant at Kingston University.
