Description

"What do you love, hate, and hope for?"


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: Thursday, January 17, 2019 | 6:30 - 9:00 pm

Where: Pearl Izumi World Headquarters | 101 S. Taylor Avenue; Louisvile, CO 80027

  • Weekend warriors

  • Moms missing the trail

  • Pros who lead the way

  • Newbies dragged around by “the guys”
