«What do you love, hate, and hope for?»

The Women's Off-Road Cycling Congress launches in Phoenix on Tuesday, February 12th thanks to an amazing partnership with Pivot Cycles!

The Women's Off-Road Cycling Congress (WÖRCC) opens an authentic dialogue between women of all experience levels. The WÖRCC initiative is creating the most robust collective voice for female off-road cyclists. We are the antidote to cycling industry «ladies' nights»; an interactive, meet-up style event inviting all women to join the conversation, create community, and inspire adventure. Bring your stories and experiences: they are the essential ingredients of a report that will convey to the off-road cycling industry where our true values lie.

When: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 | 6:30 — 9:00 pm

Where: Tempe, Arizona: Specific site TBD

Become a part of our Congress. We're 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 dragged around by “the guys”
Dreamers still on skinny tires
Bikepackers
Seasoned gravel road adventurers
