The Winter Cycling Congress, initiated by the Winter Cycling Federation, takes place annually since the year 2013. It gathers hundreds of experts from every corner of the globe to discuss the opportunities for the cycling mobility in the cold climate cities as well as building and supporting year-round cycling infrastructure and promoting cycling culture in the northern countries. The last-year congress took place in Montreal, Canada, and attracted more than 400 participants. Moscow was chosen to be the next host city among various applications submitted. The application was submitted by the Russian cycling advocacy project Let's bike it! and backed by various NGOs and governmental organisations, including the Ministry of Transport of Russia.
The 6-th Winter Cycling Congress will take place in Moscow in February 2018. The official website — www.wcc2018.ru
