Motorcycling Western Australia’s Women’s committee recently held its first event of the year, a ‘Girls day out’ ride day at Chidlow. Despite the unseasonably warm weather, 46 women and girls come along for a great day of riding and catching up.
It was great to see so many new riders come along for the day and to see them mastering the track over the day. A big thanks to MWA Women’s committee members Jess Boujos and Cheslea Blakers who offered their coaching skills during the day, much appreciated.
MWA Women’s committee is working hard behind the scenes to continue to promote women’s participation in motorcycling and these non competitive events are certainly a favourite with the riders. Creating an environment where new riders can come along and be supported to have a go and to ride alongside like minded women and girls is great and also adds to the fun for the day.
The event is also a great opportunity for those who are more experienced to have a fun day out dong what they love, there are so many women and girls who are willing to support each other, to provide advice and information to others which is fantastic to see and to be part of.
The growth of women’s participation in Motorcycling in Western Australia is certainly creating awareness with 2017 being the first year ever that the iconic Manjimup 15000 is offering a dedicated women’s class, with amazing prize money being available! Make sure you come along and support the event and many others now being offered for the women and girls.
We hope those who participated enjoyed the day, we are busy planning the next non completion event, at a different location. Information will be posted on Motorcycling WA Women’s facebook page and Motorcycling WA Women’s website soon.
