BRECK | Aug 14-17, 2023

Sonya Looney, WCS Founder


Who is the WCS for?

We’re here to elevate women. Period and full stop. This includes anyone who identifies as a woman. Whether you’re new to cycling or if you’re a pro riders seeking professional development or an opportunity to give back, our goal is to provide something for everyone. 


How does the WCS differ?

While riding is a part of the WCS, we place our focus on collaboration. So many of us have something we wish we could do, but don’t think we can. The goal here is implemention – providing you with the tools to put what you learn into action as you tackle your next big thing.

We’re gathering and assembling this incredible group of women to illustrate that growth is healthy, sustainable and learnable. You’ll receive the tools to help you thrive, from female role models who can boost your momentum.

Riding is part of our event, but the WCS is also a powerful personal and cycling development conference. Our own growth curve will soon include a bike industry “think-tank” component. This element is designed to ideate and forge expanded women’s community activations, greater financial support for women, more female-centered marketing, and in the end, better products.


Where did this idea come from?

Sonya Looney is a mother of two, a World Champion and a 4x USA National Champion Mountain Biker. She’s tackled and won the world’s hardest endurance mountain bike races. In doing so, she’s faced and overcome many of the common fears that hold riders back, learning skills along the way to be resilient, optimistic, and mentally tough for sustainable excellence.

Sonya’s transformational journey from a young bike racer aspiring to perform on the world’s stage to a veteran professional athlete, speaker, and performance coach has included ups, downs and detours. By stressing the importance of always learning, she hopes to use her life experiences to help others lead fulfilling lives on and off the bike.

Sharing her experiences and providing inspiration through her podcast, Sonya’s coaching and insights alters her listeners perceptions of their own capabilities. She amplifies other women in order to learn and grow together, and to find our best.

Sonya’s believes in the power of community; that her story, along with those of the other attendees of the Women’s Cycling Summit, can help others transform inspiration into activation.
