From 6-8 February the Winter Cycling Congress 2019 took place in Calgary, Canada.
During these days one of our newest members, Office for bicycle promotion | triple Joy, hosted a workshop about bicycle encouragement and community building, with examples from the Netherlands. Calgary was in its peak of winter weather, where due to the -28 degrees Celsius, some bike activities even had to be cancelled due to safety issues. The days on which cycling was possible, the differences were quite noticeable compared to the Dutch "soft" winter. Nevertheless, our Dutch culture of cycling was praised during one of the several workshops that were organized. Next year, the Winter Cycling Congress will take place in Joensuu, Finland.
