Copenhagen winter cyclists

In Copenhagen, 70 percent of cyclists continue to bike in winter.

Within Vancouver, cycling for transportation has grown slowly over the past 20 years to a respectable level within North America. To create a step change and cause a new wave of major cycling growth there will need to be changes in thinking towards cycling infrastructure design with trends towards the European approach.

Hear more on techniques from other cities within North America and Europe which should be brought to this region to help spur that next stage of growth. Speakers include: Jack Becker, Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition; Dr. Hans Groen, Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition, and Gordon Price, The SFU City Program.

Co-sponsored by the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition and the Simon Fraser University City Program with financial support from Translink – The Greater Vancouver Transportation Authority.
