8th Cycling and Society Research Group Symposium

Nicholas Oddy, organiser of this year’s Cycling and Society Research Group Symposium, has just announced the programme, which I’ve copied below. The Symposium takes place on Monday 5th September 2011, at Glasgow School of Art. (We also have a meeting the following day, which anyone interested in cycling research is welcome to attend.)

On Monday there will be ten presentations spanning a broad range of topics (though all of course in some way or another to do with cycling!).

The event is free, but registration is essential. To register, contact Nicholas (n dot oddy at gsa dot ac dot uk)

We’re a friendly bunch, and our annual gatherings are informal and relaxed. So whatever your background, it’d be great to see you there!
