Winnipeg Winter Cycling Congress, February 12-14, 2014
Winter is here but that doesn’t mean we have to put our bikes away. In order to encourage more active transportation during the cold months, the International Winter Cycling Congress will be held in Winnipeg, Canada. Infrastructure issues will be discussed as well as the psychological barrier associated with riding a bike when the temperature dips below zero.
To help cities think about effective planning that supports cycling year round, Mobycon consultants will be leading a workshop during the conference. Senior Consultant Angela van der Kloof and North American Consultant Mary Hudson Embry will host an interactive session in which design and bicycle network planning will be addressed. Of course, infrastructure is only one barrier to cycling. Not everyone grows up riding a bike. Angela has many years of experience teaching cycling to adults who immigrated to The Netherlands. During the conference, Angela will lead a Dutch style workshop directed at new riders from Winnipeg’s immigrant community.
It is not too late to sign up for the conference. We hope to see you there!
