Congresses are held every year. The first one was held in the winter cycling mecca of Oulu, Finland in February 2013.  Subsequent conferences have been held yearly ever since. They are always inspiring, always educational and, very very fun.


THE PROCESS FOR SELECTING THE 2022 CONGRESS CITY IS UNDERWAY! .
If you would love to see the congress in your city, we would too. Here are steps you can take:

1. Read the guidelines, build support and start crafting a conference!
2. Submit a draft proposal for review. Applicants have the option of submitting a draft proposal early for feedback. The selection committee will provide what we hope is helpful feedback. It is not necessary to submit a draft proposal, but is recommended. Deadline to submit a draft proposal is October 31st, 2019.
3. Submit your formal proposal. The application deadline is December 31st, 2019.  
4. Once applications are reviewed and the choice is made (usually within 1-2 weeks), the winning 2022 host city will be contacted and informed of the decision.
5. Sign the official MOU, Memorandum of Understanding.
6. Preparations begin, and the public announcement is made in the 2021 Winter Cycling Congress
