The industry-leading adaptive recreation organization invites mountain biking enthusiasts, professionals and novices to summit catered to women with a diverse lineup of discussions and group rides
PARK CITY, UTAH (July 7, 2021) – Today, the National Ability Center, a leading non-profit organization that provides world-class adaptive recreation and outdoor adventures for individuals and families of differing abilities, announced its inaugural women’s mountain biking summit, Outspokin’, which will be held August 19, 2021 from 9:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the NAC’s Park City campus. The summit will feature an array of seminars led by voices in the mountain biking community, group rides and meet & greet out. Registration begins at 8:45 a.m with the keynote speaker kicking off the event at 9:30 a.m. and concludes with a send-off dinner and drinks at 6:00 p.m.
“Women are making their presence known in the bike industry and we want to rally all the stoke in one place and learn from one another. The National Ability Center mission is centered on building an inclusive space and advocate for all people in the outdoors. That is why it is our pleasure and privilege to create a space for women of all abilities to come together over one passion: mountain biking,” said Adventure and Recreation Senior Program Manager, Steph Meyer. “The beauty of this event is that it is created to bring women together from many corners of the industry. From women who work in or around the mountain biking world looking for networking opportunities or students seeking to enter the industry to female veterans and female adaptive athletes or anyone who just enjoys the ride — there is value for everyone to collaborate.”
Session topics include mountain biking camps and clinics, coaching/instructing, biking after babies and with kids, adaptive mountain biking, women in MTB leadership and more. Group rides will be offered during the afternoon, allowing attendees to network and socialize with some of their mountain biking peers and industry leaders while on the beautiful, scenic local trails. Some of the rides are hosted by Little Bellas, Women in the Mountains, Women MTB, and POC.
