Bike Calgary is pleased to announce that Calgary has been awarded the 2019 Winter Cycling Congress to be held in February, 2019. The conference, which is coming to Canada for the third time, will bring 400 to 500 delegates from around the world to Calgary and area. The main goal of the conference is to create opportunities to help cities around the world learn what it takes to develop, implement, and maintain bicycle-focused transportation systems year round.
Bike Calgary was pleased to support the bid, partnering with the Town of Banff, the Town of Canmore, the City of Calgary, and the University of Calgary.
Bike Calgary is a non-profit cycling advocacy group with over 2,900 members. For the past 5 years, Bike Calgary has hosted Winter Bike to Work Day with the support of local partners. We continue to provide feedback and work with the Transportation Planning Department, Parks and Roads to advocate for improved snow clearing and route maintenance in Calgary. Many of our members will participate and be involved in the organization of the conference.
