General Event Information

Women learn more about riding, from sharing their stories, comparing notes, and from hands-on workshops and clinics than they do from other electronic means.  The Women’s Motorcycle Summit is the perfect place for women to meet, grow and ride with women who share the love of riding.

The Women’s Motorcycle Summit attendee is many things in her day-to-day life, but above all, she is a motorcycle rider.  She rides on two wheels or three.   She rides on road or off.  She is a novice or experienced rider, or anything in-between.  Men are also encouraged and welcome to attend the Summit with their partner.  Men purchase the same kind of ticket as their partner and may participate in all events.

Those attending the summit are helping others by participating in an effort much larger than themselves. In return, they experience a fun and powerfully inspiring weekend, make new friends, become a part of an extended family and have an amazing adventure. 

REGISTER HERE

Take your motorcycle riding experience to the next level.  Explore all that mountain riding has to offer.  Journey to the best America has to offer. Spend 6 ½ full days surrounded and inspired by riders who are ready to ride and make a difference in each other’s lives.

Come enjoy these truly unique events in spectacular settings, with fine cuisine, and plush accommodations!

  • June 10 – 16, 2018 // San Juan Mountains of Colorado
    • The 2 ½ Moto Expo – Durango, Colorado
    • The 4 ½ Moto Rally – Silverton, Colorado
  • San Juan Skyway Scenic and Historic Byway
    236-mile loop, 4-6 hours
    Durango is nestled in the foothills of the San Juan Mountains and is a great starting point for the San Juan Skyway Scenic and Historic Byway motorcycle ride. Because it’s a loop, riders can set out from Durango and head west on Highway 160 to Cortez or north on Highway 550 to Silverton. The route takes riders over several mountain passes, each at altitudes of 11,000 feet or higher, and through historic mountain towns that have been frozen in time. You’ll find plenty of turn-of-the-century mining history in Silverton and Telluride as well as signs of ancient pueblo civilizations in both Mancos and Cortez. The route includes a stretch of road between Ouray and Silverton that’s known as the “Million Dollar Highway.” Riders will also pass through the towns of Placerville and Ridgway and will pass by some of Colorado’s most impressive peaks, including Mount Wilson and Mount Sneffels.
  • Nearby, there is incredible riding at the Black Canyon of the Gunnison, the Colorado National Monument, Moab, Utah and MORE!

Though fundraising is not required to participate in the Summit, it is the motivation for the event.  Peer-to-peer fundraising is done electronically in teams or as individuals.  Funds raised benefit the Becoming S.T.R.O.N.G. Project for the purpose of providing educational grants to women.
