Frequently Asked Questions:

Here’s a few frequently asked questions about Black Girls Ride to Essence Fest:

Who’s invited? All Female Motorcycle Riders of all levels are invited to join us for this unique riding vacation! This experience is great for new to intermediate riders. We’ll help you get prepared for the cross country journey!

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 only offer one all-inclusive package. 

What if I want to trailer my bike? We strongly encourage you to ride, and enjoy the full experience of a cross country motorcycle ride. We don’t have parking accommodations for trailers.

I don’t think I can get enough time off to ride. Can I fly in and rent a bike? Sure, but those accommodations are yours to make. Our goal is to provide an excellent experience once you arrive on ground.

What if my girls want to drive instead? Can we park at the BGR lot? We hope you can understand that our lot is reserved for BGR Motorcycle Riders, and your registration includes bike parking only. Registration DOES NOT include car parking, but car parking will be available for $30 per day with your registration band.
