About the International Winter Cycling Congress

Winter Cycling Federation logga

The Winter Cycling Congress was founded by the Winter Cycling Federation. The congress was most recently arranged in Joensuu, Calgary and Montreal. This is the first time the congress will take place in Sweden. This annual event gathers experts from around the world together to discuss topics related to cycling in cities with colder climates.

Winter cycling for everyone

The WCF was founded in 2013 and held its first international congress the same year in Oulu, Finland. After this first gathering, it became clear that the WCF had identified an overwhelming need for more knowledge about winter cycling. It was decided that an annual congress concentrated on relevant issues was required.

The Winter Cycling Federation’s vision is “winter cycling for everyone” - a world where cycling all- year-round is understood as normal and practical, where cycling is a viable transportation option for people of all ages and abilities. The WCF’s mission is to create opportunities for inspiration, research and collaboration that help cities and countries around the world learn what it takes to develop, implement and maintain bicycle-focused transportation systems all-year-round.

Drawing upon inspiring examples from some of the premier cycling jurisdictions in the world, the Winter Cycling Congress (WCC) is now established as the main forum for sharing examples and good practices of winter cycling design, planning, policy, and implementation around the world. Its aim is to operate globally, since winter conditions are a reality for billions of people around the world.
