Critical Mass Summit's goal is to build a more inclusive trails, cycling, and active transportation community. This summit welcomes marginalized community members and existing stakeholders to engage in our region's built environment; we’re redefining who is a part of “the bubble” of decision and influence. With national and local voices leading the conversations, Trailblazers’ hope is that attendees walk away with the tools to positively impact the development of active transportation infrastructure and support building an inclusive culture.

Welcome to the Critical Mass Summit
Friday November 4-5


This year’s event has expanded to include all gender identities to deliberately bring existing stakeholders and decision-makers to the same room as the marginalized community to remove barriers to participation in the active transportation conversation. 

Critical Mass Summit is a two-day event hosted on Friday, November 4 based at Mt Sequoyah in Fayetteville, AR. Saturday, November 5 is available for full-weekend, in-person participants providing recreational opportunities around Northwest Arkansas concluded with the first Critical Mass Ride in Fayetteville. 

Participants may register for the full weekend in person and opt out of Saturday activities if unable to join us. Select "opt-out" during the registration process.

This summit is hosted by:


Trailblazers is a nonprofit formed in 2021 through the merger of NWA Trailblazers, an organization that has developed 300+ miles of multi-use trails, including the OZ Trails network, and BikeNWA, a bicycle advocacy and education-focused organization that has led the region in advocating for active transportation. Our core areas of work include trail development and maintenance, active transportation advocacy, and community education and outreach.
