We are the Idaho Gems

The Idaho Chapter of Women on Wheels and we are excited to have you join us! Please note DETAILS FOR JUNE 23RD MEETING BELOW! ALSO – LEARN ABOUT USING THE MEETUP APP ON YOUR PHONE – ALL OUR EVENTS AND RIDES ARE THERE!

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!

Idaho Gems is now using an app called Meetup. It is for your phone only. All of our rides and meetings will be there (including impromptu) and we are requesting that you use the app let us know whether or not you will be participating in a ride – you do it right in the app!

In this way, we can plan for how many group leaders we will need and what the interest level is in the ride. Our goal is safety and fun! So please help us by downloading and using the app.

The app is available in the app story for Android or iPhone. After you download just do a search for Women on Wheels Idaho Gems. It should be pop up as the first one on the list. Just click or touch it with your finger and you will become a member of the group! If you have questions, please call one of the nice ladies above and they will help you with it. Thanks so much for helping us help you!
