MON­TREAL TO HOST THE 2017 WINTER CYCLING CONGRESS

Pedal Magazine - - Out In Front -

The 2017 Winter Cycling Congress, Con­grès sur le vélo d'hiver, will be held in Mon­treal from Feb. 8-10, 2017. Un­til re­cently, winter cycling was vir­tu­ally un­heard of out­side of a few coun­tries in northern Europe. But with cycling on the rise around the world, this form of ur­ban transportation is grow­ing in pop­u­lar­ity, not only in Europe, but also in some Cana­dian and U.S. cities known for their harsher winter con­di­tions.

In­fra­struc­ture, education and mul­ti­ple facets of the prac­tice of cycling in

winter (trans­port, leisure, tourism) and the ben­e­fits, im­pacts and out­comes of winter cycling will be the four main themes of the 2017 Winter Cycling Congress.

An ini­tia­tive of the Winter Cycling Fed­er­a­tion, pre­vi­ous events have been held in Oulu, Fin­land (2013); Win­nipeg, Man. (2014); Leeuwar­den, The Nether­lands (2015) and in St. Paul, Minn. (2016).
