Cycling the academic way

Registrations are now open for the 2nd World Cycling Research Forum (WOCREF) to be held on 13/14-09-2012 in Enschede, The Netherlands.  The primary aim of WOCREF is encapsulated in its by-line 'Bringing Cycling Research to the World' and the Forum is an opportunity for those involved in research and projects into all aspects of cycling (utility, health, behaviour, social aspects, safety, engineering, advocacy etc) to present their work, add to the ever-growing body of cycling research, and to network with others involved and interested in research focused on cycling. Participants in WOCREF will hear of cycling work from around the world (Netherlands, Ireland, England, Italy, South Africa, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Singapore and the United States) and selected papers to be presented at the Forum will be published in the peer-reviewed journal Cycling Research International. This year’s WOCREF will be preceded on 12 September with a study tour of the bicycle infrastructure of Münster. The tour is to be led by Stephan Böhme of Stadt Münster who will give insights into the policies and planning that have made Münster such a cycle-friendly city. Velo Mondial endorses WOCREF.
