Riding into the Sunset

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 panel discussions to build confidence and community.

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

Events will open Friday evening with a welcome reception and panel discussion. On Saturday, we will gather on the Momentary Green where participants will experience different coaching styles through two workshops: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. After a full day, we will close the summit with a sunset toast.

A Few Words

About the Event Organizer​

Women of OZ is an inclusive, non-profit organization run by a board of women leaders in Northwest Arkansas who aim to lower the barrier of entry for women mountain bikers. We create a welcoming and non-intimidating environment for all women regardless of background or skill level.

First and foremost, we have built a community of women. We come from all backgrounds, race, beliefs, workforce, lifestyles, and experiences. But we have one thing in common….There is no judgment, we welcome all.  Let's Ride Together.
