WCC Coffee Outside event poster FINAL (1).png

No tickets required - just show up and enjoy coffee outside!


Opening the evening is Pekka Tahkola, Urban well-being engineer

Pekka, the Vice President of Winter Cycling Federation loves nature, especially a proper winter. And bikes. Be it cause or consequence, he resides in the winter cycling capital of the world: Oulu, Finland. Located almost at the Arctic Circle, the city enjoys long, snowy, harsh winters, which, even though you might think the opposite, when paired with world-famous maintenance make winter cycling just a normal everyday activity in the city. Apart from bicycles, he has a huge interest in transportation history, vintage pianos, adventures of all sorts, and ice cream. 

Please note the live podcast is free for registered Winter Cycling Congress delegates.

For community members there is a small entry fee of $25. $12 if you're a student!
