WINTER CYCLING CONGRESS
February 8-10, 2017 | Montréal
After Oulu, Winnipeg, Leeuwarden and Minneapolis-Saint Paul, the 5th edition of the Winter Cycling Congress will be held in Montréal!
In 2017, the Winter Cycling Congress
will take place in one of North America’s most bicycle-friendly cities – at least while there is no snow on the ground. The event will bring together a variety of experts and stakeholders committed to encouraging winter cycling and active mobility and, in so doing, contributing to the year-round vitality of communities.
This edition of the Winter Cycling Congress
will be of interest to a wide range of individuals from Canada, the U.S. and Europe, including not only those engaged directly with cycling but also those who engage with it through the realms of urban design, engineering, and tourism. The congress will be a point of convergence for officials from different levels of government as well as professional and technicians responsible for planning, implementation and maintenance of cycling infrastructure. The congress is also for those more broadly interested in active mobility and its many benefits, whether it is from the point of view of public health, quality of life, economics, etc.

The organizing committee is seeking proposals from academics, stakeholders, practitioners and decision-makers who want to share their experiences, research and other initiatives with the 300 attendees of Winter Cycling Congress 2017
