Women riders from around the globe are invited to the first ever Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit Friday, May 2 through Sunday, May 4, in Denver, Colo., at the Sheraton Denver South. The Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit is the idea of Lady Road Dog, aka Joan Krenning, CEO of DesignWraps Brands, whose intention is to bring together industry professionals, manufacturers and designers, along with women motorcycle riders of all ages and riding styles, providing them a platform to share ideas and network.
Joan says, “This is a chance to forge more than juststrong friendships and learn new skills. It is an opportunity to come together as a sisterhood, to be part of the largest directory of information for women riders and to raise money for charity groups, Helping with Horsepower, Ride for Kids, and Grace After Fire.”
“I know Joan personally have been on the inside watching this idea take shape,” says Genevieve Schmitt, editor of WomenRidersNow.com, and Sturgis Motorcycle Hall of Fame inductee. “Joan has an eye on the more meaningful things in life and engaging in activities that will affect the greater good. Participants should be prepared to leave with inspiration and knowledge that goes far beyond their motorcycling life. For that reason, I’m honored to be involved as a speaker.”
