RIDING TO EMPOWER WOMEN THROUGH EDUCATION

S.T.R.O.N.G. Women Ride ... To Leave Their Mark On The World

One woman can make a difference, but women working together can change the world.

~ Johanna Crawford, Web of Benefit

The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.

Pablo Picasso

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.

The Mission of the Women’s Motorcycle Summit™ is Empowering Women Through Education.™
When women register for the Women’s Motorcycle Summit,  first & foremost, they are signing up for a Transformational 6.5 day Adventure perfectly designed for All Women, All Ages, All Skill Levels & Riding All Bikes aimed at providing you and your team with a platform to power up both your motorcycle … and life skills.

History of Women’s Motorcycle Summit

Over the last four years, the Steel Horse Sisterhood’s Women’s Motorcycle Summit has inspired and encouraged women to grow their skills and thrive while celebrating women and motorcycling.
Previous Colorado Summits have been located in Denver, Loveland, 2 years in Ouray and now, in 2018 the Summit has found it’s home in Silverton, and Durango, Colorado.

Start Your Engines, Ladies. Mount up.
It’s going to be a Wild Ride.

Truly jaw-dropping demonstrations of the natural, rugged beauty of the San Juan Mountains will be revealed each day of the 2018 Women’s Motorcycle Summit™.  Experiences will play a huge role as your story continues to unfold.
Equally jaw-dropping? Exceeding the $50,000 fundraising goal set for our inaugural Peer – To-Peer Fundraising Effort.

Explaining the Event

SUMMIT ~ Refers, literally, to the topmost point of a hill or similar elevation and, figuratively, to the highest attainable level, as of achievement.

Imagine, 6 ½ fun-filled, action-packed days of motorcycle riding and adventure where women experience enriching riding courses, Remarkable Locations, centered around and showcasing amazing roads and exciting routes, all designed to challenge and transform one into a better rider . . . and person.  Throw in a great group of female motorcyclists who love the sport as much as you do, and put it all into an ideal experience. Two summits, two distinctly separate locations and basecamps producing two very different, yet awesome events … That’s the Women’s Motorcycle Summit


THE MOTO EXPO™ ~ The 2-day Moto Expo located in Durango, Colorado is filled with training sessions, educational gear clinics , workshops, and a vendor pavilion, all intended to empower women riders and the men who ride with them by helping build skills and share knowledge that will inspire and transform!


THE MOTO RALLY™ ~ Is the fundraising platform for the Summit. These 4 ½ Days are filled with action packed fun, amazing riding roads, the “Legends of the West” photoshoot, an epic “San Juan Skyway” Poker Run (for those feeling less competitive) and the Featured Main Event,  the S.T.R.O.N.G. Scavenger Hunt for all motorcycle riders. Additionally, attendees will enjoy nightly parties, and other events to enjoy in the summer splendor of Silverton!


The S.T.R.O.N.G. “Scavenger Hunt Competition” is an integral part of your Women’s Motorcycle Summit journey.

S.T.R.O.N.G. SCAVENGER HUNT COMPETITION: Simply stated, it is a scavenger hunt — on motorcycles — on steroids! It’s a miniature “amazing race” personalized for the women motorcycle road riders that combines the brain-twisting challenge of clue-solving with the active excitement of a motorcycle tour while having tons of fun as you and your teammates compete against other Challengers. The S.T.R.O.N.G. “Scavenger Hunt Competition” is an integral part of your Women’s Motorcycle Summit journey.
