2017 International Cycling Safety Conference

Safety for bicyclists means safety for all


September 21-22, 2017

Davis, California, USA - UC Davis Conference Center

About

The 6th annual International Cycling Safety Conference will be held for the first time outside of Europe in Davis, California, USA, the "Bicycling Capital of the United States". The conference will bring together a truly international group to discuss the most relevant topics on the safety of bicycling.

The conference began as a Dutch initiative of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment, TNO, Fietsberaad (Dutch center of expertise on bicycle policy), SWOV and Delft University of Technology.

Davis California is the preeminent cycling city in the USA. It was the first city in the USA to install bicycle lanes on city streets (in 1967), motivated by similar infrastructure in Holland (the image above shows the first bike lane). Davis has the highest cycling trip mode share in the country, at about 22% of trips by bicycle and there are more bicycle paths and lanes per capita in Davis than in any other US city. For 50 years, the city and university campus have insisted on bike friendly development, maintaining connectivity to the existing infrastructure.

The conference will promote maximal interaction between participants through topical social sessions and interactive presentations. All conference papers will be publicly available in an open access online repository. All papers submitted for the conference will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field and selected scientific papers from the conference will be published in a special issue of a scientific journal.

The conference will contain a number of social events. On provided loaner bicycles, the attendees will be able to tour the existing and planned bicycle infrastructure around the town and university. The conference dinner will be held at the US Bicycle Hall of Fame which includes a 19th Century bicycle history museum.

Additionally, we will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first bicycle lanes in the United States together with the City and the 200th anniversary of the invention of the bicycle with the rest of humanity.
