What We Learned at the Winter Cycling Congress in Winnipeg
Last month five of us who are members of both OCBC and Bike Cleveland took a road trip to Winnipeg to attend the 2nd International Winter Cycling Congress, and check out some serious snow riding. We had a blast, learned a lot, and took lots of pictures (see some of them on a Tumbler blog here). But we figured we should do a bit more to share our experience with the folks back home, so we are inviting some local governmental decision makers and the public to join us for a slideshow and a brief recap of our conference presentations and what we learned there -- both in the formal sessions, and riding around in the snow with our Canadian hosts, visiting some of Winnipeg's many bike co-ops, cultural institutions, and swinging hot-spots.
As hosts for this Bike Cleveland Social event, OCBC will be serving tamales and beer -- so as usual the event is free, but donations are welcome, and
pot-luck that goes with tamales will be appreciated! If the Ides of March brings snow, we'll also have studded tires and
Bike-Skis to test ride -- and, in any case, some cool winter accessories at end-of-winter
sale prices if you don't win any in the raffle!
If you plan to attend, please join the event that Bike Cleveland created, so we know how many tamales to steam.
Think Snow, one last time!
We'd like to thank everyone who helped put on the Expo! We had over 100+ people in attendance and raised over $1800!
