Women’s Off-Road Cycling Congress

October 25, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Louisville

 

“As female off-road cyclists, what do we love, hate, and hope for?”

The Women’s Off-Road Cycling Congress (WÖRCC) opens an authentic dialogue between women of all experience levels. WÖRCC is an antidote to the cycling industry’s “ladies’ nights”. We are a meet-up style event inviting all women to join the conversation. During an interactive evening, all participants will take part in crafting our inaugural manifesto to the off-road cycling industry.

When: Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Where: Pearl Izumi World Headquarters; Louisville, CO

Our Congress is looking for representatives from every corner of female off-road cycling including:

– First-time mountain bikers
– Experienced racers
– Weekend warriors
– Moms missing the trail
– Pros who lead the way
– Newbies drug around by “the guys”
– Dreamers still on skinny tires
– Bikepackers
– Seasoned gravel road adventurers

Enjoy beautiful food from Pica’s Taqueria and cocktails by Suerte Tequila during a hosted reception, followed by the evening’s keynote presenters and fast-paced breakout sessions. Join us as a representative of the Women’s Off-Road Cycling Congress and add your voice to our statement. What do you love, hate, and hope for as a female off-road cyclist?
