I was amazed and impressed to see many women riding massive Harleys when I attended the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
I think we are seeing the dawn of a new era of females riding bikes, seeking freedom and self-determination. Hopefully Hollywood will recognise this with more iconic women in motorcycle movies.
Meanwhile, on International Women’s Day, let’s remember some of the pioneers of motorcycling as well as some of today’s female riders like these French women who crossed the Himalayas. Their video is in three parts.
Check out the many stories below about how women are making their mark in our favourite recreation.
