Hitting the Trail

Not only has the number of female motorcyclists increased to 14%, but women’s interest in dirt and ADV riding has seen growth as well. Some of the most notable adventure riders in the world are women (like Lisa Thomas, Sherri Jo Wilkins, and Ailsa Clickenger, to name a few), signifying the “fairer ” is not afraid to get dirty. For all the ladies out there who ride ADV already, are interested in riding ADV, or anyone who knows a woman interested in riding ADV, a new online community has sprung up, titled SheADV.

The website and Facebook page provide excellent information about riding groups, routes, gear, fitness, and fellow female ADV riders. So far, their most popular sections are “Meet the Riders” and “Event Calendar,” which give women relatable role models for ADV riding, and opportunities to meet other riders in person. Similar to other ladies-only groups and events , SheADV provides an online community for women to find the unique camaraderie and sisterhood in the ADV world.

Out in the Wild

ADV riding provides excellent opportunities for motorcyclists to explore the backcountry on two wheels.

Touratech is proud to sponsor the new SheADV group, viewing it as an excellent opportunity to increase interest in adventure motorcycling and give back to the riding community. Anyone in support of women riding ADV bikes is welcome to visit to join the community and help enhance the adventure motorcycling world at large. Ride on, ladies!
