– Can I bring my husband/significant other? You sure can! While our itinerary caters to women who ride, men are welcome to follow along. Simply purchase their registration and they are all set to join us!
– What if my guest only wants to do some of what’s on the itinerary? Do they still have to pay full price? Absolutely! Our pricing is based on providing female motorcycle riders with the full experience. To ensure this, we’ll only offer one package this year.
