CIE is delighted to announce three important events taking place in June. These events are all about what's next in terms of recovery, new developments and industry growth. 


Event: Bikesharing in the aftermath of COVID-19: A new pillar of public transport? Date & time: 11 June 2020, 14:00 CET. Registration: here.

On Thursday, June 11th, we are holding a webinar on the future of bike share schemes and business models post-COVID, in partnership with POLIS. They are the leading network of European cities and regions working together to develop innovative technologies and policies for local transport. 

Our CEO, Kevin Mayne, and two member bike share companies - Pietro Peyron, International Business Development Manager at nextbike, and Alexander H. Frederiksen, Chief of Sales & Partnerships at Donkey Republic - will discuss, on a panel alongside transport officials from Madrid and Brussels: 

  • the impact of the pandemic on different bike share schemes
  • different & new public-private partnerships between cities & companies 
  • pros and cons of commercial vs. public schemes
  • new business models (bike share as a 4th pillar of public transport, smart subsidies, ...)

This webinar is exclusively for CIE and POLIS members.


Event: Mountain Biking in the post-COVID era. Date & time: 18 June 2020, 15:00 - 16:30 CET. Registration: here.

On Thursday, June 18th, IMBA Europe is hosting an online summit on mountain biking in the post-COVID era. The Mountain Bike segment is a major part of the cycling industry in Europe, but it is hardly mentioned in the current discussions about cycling recovery. We need to change that and give MTB a voice. That’s why CIE is working with IMBA Europe to create this dedicated summit just for mountain biking. This meeting is for everyone in the MTB sector – suppliers, brands, event managers and MTB centres. Please feel free to inform all your contacts in the MTB sector that this event is happening. 

The aim of the summit is to provide insights on how to unlock the potential of MTB during the COVID-19 reopening process and recovery planning. Leading experts and policy makers in the fields of adventure travel, MTB tourism & trail development, outdoor recreation and the cycling industry will discuss: 

  • how MTB tourism will look post-COVID
  • how MTB's economic potential & benefits to society can be unlocked during re-opening and recovery planning
  • where MTB fits in the EU Recovery Plan and Green Deal


Event: Cycling market data & business intelligence - where are we now? Date & time: 24 June 2020, 15:00 - 16:30 CEST. Registration: here.

On Wednesday, June 24th, CIE is hosting a webinar on cycling market data and business intelligence. This virtual event will bring attendees up to date with the latest position of the cycling industries during the post-COVID period with details of CIE's second Business Impact Survey.

It will also feature the launch of CIE’s newest Expert Group on Market Impact and Intelligence which will be a platform for companies to exchange expertise in market research, consumer behaviour and trends such as city data.

CIE will be joined by experts from other sectors such as cities and advocacy to understand how the industry can develop better market intelligence, combining expertise from multiple sources to better forecast where the growth sectors in cycling will be seen in the future.
