However the citizens are the ones to make the event vibrant and unforgettable, the citizens who are professionals from completely different fields united by their love to comfortable cities, bicycles and positive perception of winter. Previous congresses took place in Oulu, Finland (2013), Winnipeg, Canada (2014), Leeuwarden, Netherlands (2015), Minneapolis-St.Paul, USA (2016), Montréal, Canada (2017).
