Biannual means occuring twice a year.

Your later post suggests you are intending for a conference once every two years.

If you do decide to put a motion forward please be clear about the intended frequency of 'Bikesafe' events.
It's got nothing to do with vorsprung durch technic you know ...

Well spotted Gaz

Every two years, Biennial

I will edit some previous posts in case people are confused. The intention is a conference with research papers, perhaps similar to Velo City but much smaller and with close connections to the UK situation and problems. Sustrans or BC may wish to be partners for some events, some universities may be able to host the conference.

I wonder how the second proposal differs from the campaigning conferences organised by Cyclenation groups.

the motion would read;
The CTC provides (either alone or with others) a biennial (every two years) road safety 'Bikesafe' conference.

Reason:
This would allow for technical research papers on topics and presentation of information, together with discussions of how best to improve conditions for cycling. A publication of 'Bikesafe' conference papers could be published every two years. This would promote UK cycling related research and highlight issues where improvements could be made. This could be in addition to one day events that CTC already provide. Hopefully UK universities could be encouraged to become involved and provide suitable research. Cycling UK Right To Ride representatives should have access to the mini Velo type conference and contribute with their experience to the level of understanding required to advance the conditions for cycling
.

The above would encourage universities or others to provide research on cycling topics specific to the UK or in general. It would be more than key speakers and discussions, it would help promote and provide new research. So far it needs a seconder to proceed. Where the AGM will be held is still not provided.
