EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Great Turnout for First Biker Belles Ride

Inaugural women’s ride in Sturgis a success


About 100 female riders showed up to participate in the first Biker Belles ride, an all-women ride (men could ride in the back) taking place during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in August. WRN Editor Genevieve Schmitt participated in and covered the ride. Below is the video she shot and edited.              

Thank you to the following corporate sponsors who made this first Biker Belles ride a success: the Buffalo Chip, Interstate Battery, Pepsi, Knology, Deadwood Chamber, and Bic 4 Good.

And a big thank you to these companies that donated items to the fashion show to raise additional money for the charities: Icon, Riders Wraps, Team Diva, Power Trip, and Victory.

I am so proud to say that I was one of the fortunate women who was able to ride in this charity event. My husband and I planned the trip to Sturgis for over a year. We rode 23 days total from Perry, Georgia, to Sturgis then home via Vegas and the Grand Canyon. More than 6,300 miles put on our bikes and some of the most breathtaking scenery in the U.S.A. will always be memories we will cherish, but the ride with the Biker Belles was truly the highlight of my once in a lifetime trip.

Thanks to Meg, Laura, Woody and all of the other sisters and brothers that planned such a wonderful and unforgettable ride. I can't imagine how I could ever work it out to attend this event in 2012 but I dream of riding with my sisters through the beautiful mountains just one more time. You have to go and support this charitable event. You go girls!
