The pandemic situation has lead to changes in many plans, including postponement of the ICSC 2020 conference. To keep the spirit high and the community feeling warm, we organise an online event (webinar) that will take place on 5th November 2020, 15:00-17:00 CET (9:00-11:00 EST).

The topic of the webinar is...

Single bicycle crashes as a rising problem


The large majority of serious injuries among cyclists are due to single crashes and in a few countries the same applies to cyclist deaths. This special session will highlight the size of the problem, trends, existing data and knowledge and provide a discussion about why so little is known about causes and measures to address single-bicycle crashes.
