During the last several years St. Petersburg has been actively developing its cycling infrastructure and the number of cyclists is growing fast.

Participation in the congress will be of interest for both those engaged directly with cycling and those who engage with it through other realms. In 2018 more than 700 participants took part in the cycling congress, among which were policymakers of federal, provincial and local levels, representatives of city administrations, leaders of NGOs, employees of design, planning, engineering and transport organizations, professional and technicians responsible for planning, implementation and maintenance of cycling infrastructure, business community.

The International Cycling Congress was initiated by the Russian cycling advocacy project Let’s bike it! in 2016 and took place in Moscow for the first three years. During this time it has become one of the largest cycling congresses in the world and a popular platform for exchanging experience on promoting cycling and building a convenient and safe cycling infrastructure in the Russian cities.

Saint Petersburg was granted the right to host the international cycling congress in 2019 as a result of an open competition. Joint bid was submitted by the civic project Velosipedization of St. Petersburg and St. Petersburg Bicycle Society under support of Saint Petersburg Committee on Transport Infrastructure Development.
