The 2014 Winnipeg Winter Cycling Congress Team has received interest from more than 50 speakers throughout Canada, the United States, Finland, and Denmark! Therefore, the congress has been extended from a two-day to a three-day conference.
A pre-conference workshop facilitated by Urban Systems on Bicycle Infrastructure will be held on February 11, 2014. This 1 day course is designed to assist design professionals in developing awareness and understanding of the unique issues and needs of cyclists and will equip participants with the design skills needed to deal with diverse, complex issues that arise around the selection, design and implementation of cycling infrastructure. The course considers the wide variety of contexts in which cycling infrastructure is implemented throughout Canada, including rural, suburban and urban communities. The course will have a specific emphasis throughout the curriculum on planning, designing, and maintaining bicycle facilities in Winter Cities.
Register now, this course is being offered at a special rate to commemorate the Winter Cycling Congress.
