Cycling and Society Symposium 2012

The Cycling and Society Symposium has finished, and I am exhausted – but in a good way :) Eighty people (from academia, advocacy, policy and practice) came over the two days and we had a packed programme.

Discussions

Discussions over lunch and poster session, Monday

Lots of ideas, lots of networking, lots of debate over a day and a half (and an evening in the pub). Nineteen talks (and associated discussion), sixteen posters (ditto), and a Sunday afternoon ride. There was more of an international flavour this year, with contingents from (among other countries) Denmark and The Netherlands. (A moment that made me smile on the ride: when one of the participants, gazing at a ‘good example’ of cycle infrastructure, said tactfully ‘You know it is rather strange seeing this coming from The Netherlands’).

On the bike ride

Near Lock 7, Sunday afternoon bike ride.

Thanks to all participants, presenters, chairs, abstract reviewers, co-organisers, helpers on the day, etc… (people who came up at busy points and said ‘what can I do?’, you know who you are!)

poster discussion

Godwin explaining his poster to Trine

I plan, over the next month, to upload and link to files including pictures, audio recordings of talks and presentation files (subject to presenters’ agreement). Watch this space – and, if you’ve got any photos etc. from the event that you’d like me to share links to, let me know :)
