Ladies in Leather (LiL) is hosting their third annual parade and rally – and female unity within the freedom of the ride has never been stronger.
The description? That this event represents women from over 30 states, that they expect a turnout of all makes and models of bikes (yes, we’re looking at you, Kawasaki), and that they welcome all women, period.
When asked to explain the reason for LiL, the organization explains that “sure, we’re all women. But beneath the surface, it is so much more than that. We are wives, daughters, mothers, and sisters. We are caregivers, nurturers, and providers of endless love and affection. We are homemakers and business professionals. We are divorcees and retirees, and some of us are wandering women, just trying to find our place in this world.”
“We are all diverse – like a giant quilt woven with a million different fabrics. We share an unspoken bond with one another, and it is a feeling that can’t be taught or learned but must be experienced. This is why the LiL Parade and Rally is our weekend.”
“It is our time to forget about our jobs and duties as women and just enjoy something simpler. When we throw our legs over that bike, we become one entity. We are sisters in the wind – we are Lady Riders!”
