At this WÖRCC session, we will:

Create Community

Join us for locally inspired food and drink. WÖRCC is a meet-up – and a celebration of the season to come.

Unite Our Voices

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.

Inspire Adventure

Find camaraderie among women with shared passions, and renew – or discover – the sense of possibility for life where the pavement ends.

Speakers and Break Out Leaders

Engage with women cyclists who are making their mark in the off-road cycling industry.

Kristi Mohn

Keynote Speaker

Kristi is extremely proud of two things, her family and her hometown of Emporia, KS. Her background is peppered with traveling, teaching, and selling real estate, but in 2017 she made her mark on off-road cycling by founding the ``200 Women, 200 Miles`` campaign at the Dirty Kanza by campaigning to reserve 200 registrations for women. Despite selling out in less than five minutes, Kristi's campaign successfully increased women's participation from 10% to 25%. She truly loves to help create opportunities; for her family, for female cyclists, and for her hometown.

Elorie Slater

Shop 'Til You Drop: What, where, and how are female off-road cyclists are acquiring gear?

Elorie is owner of Sports Garage Cycling, the only independent bicycle retailer in Boulder, Colorado exclusively dedicated to off-road cycling. She rode her first singletrack in 2008, and has since pursued countless bicycle adventures. In 2017, Elorie founded the Women's Off-Road Cycling Congress with the simple goal of creating a better ``ladies' night`` at Sports Garage. She and her husband raise two teenage daughters in Boulder, and explore the world as a family as often as possible.
