Is This Summit For Me?

This event is designed for women* (cis and trans), including women of color and the non-binary community. Intentionally built for women who normally don’t have the ability to participate in conversations and decision-making around these topics in events. Summit attendees are not required to have a cycling background, but are encouraged to have an interest in social change, active transportation, nonprofits, community groups or grassroot organizations that are making positive change within their community.

*The Critical Mass Summit team is conscious of the ever-evolving language around gender and identity. The Summit team uses woman/en to refer to anyone who identifies as female, regardless of sex assigned at birth, gender expression or gender identity. The goal is to create a space that is inclusive, respectful and welcoming of the trans, cis and non-binary communities.
