Our Mission:

To unite all women motorcycle enthusiasts for recreation, education, mutual support, recognition, and to promote a positive image of women motorcyclists.   


We are women motorcyclists with a common bond of the love of the sport and are non-bike specific. Our focus is on safety. Chartered in March 2006, we plan short rides as well as overnighters and participate in area-wide non-profit charity and community events and rallies. We schedule one formal ride each month, generally on weekends. (Monitor this website for changes.)  We love spontaneous, informal weekday rides!   Be sure to get on our email list so you can be notified of an impending putt!
