2015 Conference Attendee Information

Posted on August 12, 2015 by Courtney Barnes

Dear Registrant,


We look forward to seeing you at the upcoming Medicine of Cycling Conference on August 14-16, 2015 at the USA Cycling Headquarters in Colorado Springs, CO.  The course is rapidly approaching and we wanted to take just a moment to provide some additional information before your journey to Colorado Springs.

Conference Location

The entire conference will be held at USA Cycling Headquarters at 210 USA Cycling Point, Colorado Springs, CO 80909. You can choose to ride, drive, or walk between Hyatt House and USA Cycling; it’s only 5-minute walk. Hyatt House has complimentary breakfast near the main entrance to the hotel. Our group is often the largest and most gregarious, so join us and fellow course participants before heading over to USA Cycling for the lectures. Lunch and snacks will be provided onsite at USA Cycling on Friday and Saturday.

Presentations and Handouts

This is a greener” conference, which means presentations will be online and available for you to view on your personal computer or mobile device along with the presenters if you choose. Some of the presenters will have their presentations or syllabus outlines online ahead of the conference; participants will be able to view these at http://www.ucsfcme.com/cycling/***** starting Monday evening, August 10.

Evaluation and CE Certificates

This year’s course evaluation will also be online and a link to the survey will be available on the day of the course on the presentation page above. Complete your daily evaluations of the speakers or sessions online, and then complete an overall evaluation for the course. The surveys will work on a smartphone, however a laptop or an iPad is easier to use. Once you complete the overall course evaluation, your CE/CME certificate will be e-mailed to you.
