Women riders from all over are invited to the Texas Hill Country area in April when the wildflowers are in full bloom for the Revved-Up Women Texas Motorcycle Expo. This first-year event is taking place April 28–30, 2017 at Retama Park, near San Antonio, Texas. Attendees will enjoy guided rides, workshops, and panel discussions by recognized leaders in the motorcycle industry. Beginner and advanced rider classes will also be held, as well as a fashion show, and a free Sunday brunch.

“It’s a combination rally, conference, and trade show for experienced and new riders,” said Teresa Kelly, spokesperson for the inaugural family-friendly event. “It’s also unique in that it will offer women and girls who have never ridden a motorcycle before the chance to experience this amazing sport safely and enjoyably.”
