The Women’s Motorcycle Summit is a Two-Part event beginning with 2-Days in Durango and culminating with a 5 Night – 4 1/2 Day stay in Silverton, Colorado.

The educational curriculum, developed around the “5 Tenets of Healthy Living, Healthy Riding” is designed to lead women to power up both their motorcycle skills and their life skills. Each of these courses corresponds to one or more of these 5 Tenets.
