Riding into the Sunset
The WOZ Sunset Summit is our main fundraiser for the year. Our mission at Women of OZ is to break down barriers for women in cycling. One of the biggest hurdles is education, so we’re bringing together the top industry leaders and best coaches in the world for Sunset Summit – a weekend of rides, clinics, workshops, and discussions to build confidence and community. The weekend’s fundraising efforts go to support our programming throughout the year-to get more women on bikes and in turn help women find their community.

Limited additional experiences to boost your WOZ Sunset Summit Weekend:
All Are Welcome
We welcome all who identify as a woman as well as women of all backgrounds, lifestyles and skills, to join us. Spanish-speaking coaches and ASL interpreters will be available. If you need additional support, please let us know.
Where We Ride
In the land of OZ, the Ozark Mountains are our playground. Set in Bentonville, Arkansas, the Mountain Biking Capital of the World, we’ve scouted the best venues – indoors and out – for world-class skills and drills with informative programming. Our goal is that you take knowledge and inspiration home with you.
What We’re Planning
The event will begin Friday afternoon with a welcome reception. On Saturday and Sunday, we will gather on the Momentary Green where participants will experience different coaching styles through two clinics: one each morning. Saturday afternoon we'll offer afternoon bike excursions from some of our top coaches, a variety of fun and educational workshops then cocktails to follow on the rooftop deck of the Ledger with dinner and a keynote. The second annual Sunset Summit will end Sunday at noon.
2023 Coach Line Up
We’ve invited 34 of the leading female coaches in the world to Sunset Summit. Pioneers in the sport, these women have been chosen to bring what they do best to Bentonville with the intention of learning more about bikes, each other and ourselves.

2023 Event Schedule
WOZ Sunset Summit is your chance to connect, build your skills, have some fun, and raise money to get more women on mountain bikes. It doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or advanced, WOZ Sunset Summit is for you.
We kick off Friday with a check in at the WOZ Clubhouse at the Momentary, pick up your Specialized Bike rental additions and explore WOZ ReSet brought to you by Engel and Volkers (some incredible vendors, partners, and supporters) to bring your WOZ experience to the NEXT LEVEL. Take advantage of the special Blake Street Add On and get access to all of the amenities Blake Street has to offer starting Friday!
At 5:30, join us for a welcome at The Momentary North Courtyard and some incredible bites and bevi’s from Sunny’s and the Momentary. This is a great chance for you to get familiar with the Momentary and WOZ Clubhouse while making a few new friends.
Saturday you will start at The Momentary for a grab and go breakfast, meet up with your skills clinic group, a quick morning pep up followed by your 3 hour skills clinic. You’ll come back to the The Momentary for lunch before choosing two different workshops to attend. Maybe you want to go on a group ride? We have some great group rides you can add on, but hurry there are limited slots available for those rides.
Saturday evening you will head over to the Ledger for an epic Sunset Party to celebrate you. Sunset Party will feature Honorary Chair Amber Bynum, Vice President of Health and Wellness Sourcing at Walmart; Lea Davison, 2 time Olympian and founder of Little Bellas; dinner, dancing, and a special Sunset Toast from the rooftop. Additional tickets are available for the party, so invite your spouse, coworker, or friend to join.
Sunday morning, you will meet back at the Momentary for breakfast followed by your second skills clinic. When you get back, take one final stroll through the WOZ ReSet before it closes down for the day. Finish off Sunday by taking advantage of that Blake Street addition and taking a dip in the pool. No better way to enjoy your Sunday afternoon-post WOZ Sunset Summit.
