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.”

6 thoughts on Registration Now Open for Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit
I live 30 minutes south of Denver and 30 minutes east of the front range (the Rockies), in an area I’ve dubbed “the mole hills,” only 6400 feet up, but the plains are right behind us a couple more miles east. Yes, our springtimes are confusing. Last week we got 8 inches of snow and today it was almost 80 degrees and all the snow is gone. Our winters are similar but colder. We’ll get snow and then a few days later the snow is gone. Back and forth all winter and spring. Then one day you wake up and it’s summer. That’s happens end of May, beginning of June. I don’t think I’ll ever get use to that instant change but it’s better than snow every day for months so I will deal. Add our yin yang weather to no mosquitos, it’s almost perfect living conditions. Throw an ocean and beach into my back yard and I’d be living in heaven. OK back to reality. This time of year, I’d suggest wearing layers and leathers. It’s chilly most mornings, warmer at midday and the temp goes down with sun and also with the altitude. The temp can also go down fast when a cloud covers the sun but don’t panic unless it’s a front. I have a great Accuweather app that gives the temp, etc. for every town you want to visit. Keep in mind, your phone might not get good coverage in the mountains. So plan well! The Rockies has its own weather system. Know what you’re riding into. The higher you go the cooler the weather. It can be a beautiful sunny mild day down here in the molehills and once you hit the foothills you can run into a wall of bad weather. It’s important to plan your ride and get into the mountains before the sun heads west. But if your itch is as bothersome as mine, then who cares what time of day it is. Get on your bike and scratch that itch till it’s raw.
Wow Lucille! Thanks for sharing all that great weather info. We are lucky to have you reading WRN to share an insiders weather viewpoint of Colorado and that time of year. I’ll publish your personal website here, Lucille.info, in exchange for sharing all that great information with our readers. You look like quite the performer. I hope I get to meet you.
I can’t be there but would love nothing more than to be part of something so amazing. My thoughts will be with everyone attending. Can’t wait to hear how it goes. Will be awesome I know. Love and peace across the miles.
I’m very much looking forward to attending this event and connecting with other women riders. I wonder, though, about riding conditions in the area in early May. Will we be able to get out of the Denver area surrounded by mountains? What are the snow conditions at that time of year?
I live in Montana, in the Rocky Mountains, and while Denver is in a lower latitude than Montana, May is “springtime in the Rockies” no matter what part of the Rockies we’re talking about. It’s not unusual to experience a snow storm or very wet conditions that time of year. Even if the sun is out with no precipitation that weekend, a high would be 50s to 60s in Denver. The mountains are another story. There will still be snow in the mountains in early May. I would say just be sure to check the weather as best you can ahead of time and have contingency plans.
