The core program runs over two consecutive days on Thursday February 11 and Friday 12, 2021.  Participants can also join a pre-conference session starting earlier in the week. 


The congress will highlight four Winter Cycling themes:

  • Changing Gears - politics, advocacy and municipal policy, gender, race, climate and social justice
  • Keeping the Wheels Turning - urban planning and design, equipment, how-to’s, maintenance and operation
  • Pedalling for the Future - social, financial, physical and mental health, psychology, community building business, marketing or communications
  • For the Love of Winter - Art - No two snowflakes are alike, and this is a conference unlike any other. Winter is magic. Share your gift. Tell a story.
The main congress theme, Viva La Bike Boom!, brings attention to the recent global boom in bicycle sales and reflects the variety of topics in the congress programme.
