Your preparation for the Cycle Highway Academy

Every participant is invited to send video footage of 1-2 km of ‘their’ cycle highway (where quality/maturity is high… or very low, as contrast. “challenges” and “benchmarks”) including gpx track. This footage will be used during the academy to increase the level of interactivity.
Please bring warm and appropriate clothing for the cycle excursion and an umbrella as fallback.
