I can't wait to go!
Hopefully the event is a go. Looking into it I see it was cancelled in 2023 due to low registration (the fee was nearly 600 Euros to attend as a two day conference). Host was supposed to be Karlstad, Sweden.
The event didn't happen in winter of 2022 understandably due to pandemic and in 2021 it was virtual. In 2024, for Edmonton, it is being planned as a 4 day event- wonder what that will mean in terms of registration fee.
Hopefully with a Canadian city as host again we can draw good interest from all the major cities across the Prairies along with Ontario/Quebec and the US winter cities where travel to here will be easier and less expensive.
I'm sure the Edmonton committee tasked with putting this on will do a great job.
The international Winter Cycling Congress has been held since 2013 in cities all over the world. It has been hosted by the cities of Oulu, Finland; Winnipeg, Canada; Leeuwarden, Netherlands; Minneapolis, USA; Montreal, Canada; Calgary, Canada; Moscow, Russia; and Joensuu, Finland.
