Winter Cycling

A webinar on cycle road maintenance and mobility management strategies for promoting year-round cycling

The webinar was arranged on the 15th January 2020.

A webinar on winter cycling and its potential for improving public health as well as strategies to make year-round cycling more attractive and accessible in Central Baltic winters. The webinar covered: public health benefits of year-round active commuting by bicycle; experiences and results of two different sweep-salting initiatives in Finland and Sweden; and key learnings from a research project in Northern Sweden on how to promote children’s active school transports by bicycle in the wintertime, and how this initiative is now being scaled up and implemented in several different municipalities. At the end we had a brief discussion and time for questions.
