The Women Riding into the Future Conference will take place on August 15–18, 2013, just outside Calgary, Alberta. But don’t assume this event is limited to Canadian riders—rather, women riders from all places are welcome, including those from the United States and other countries. The conference, now in its 11th year,will feature a full slate of inspirational speakers, coaching seminars, interactive workshops, sponsor and vendor product showcases, demo rides, and scenic rides.
“The increase of women riders is one of the most exciting developments in the motorcycling community over the past decade,” said planning committee cochair Mary Johnson. “The growth of the number of women motorcycling underscores the need for addressing the specific needs of women riders and for building on their experiences to enrich the riding experiences for all.”
Conference participants will benefit from a full slate of presentations on topics including seasonal safety tips, selecting the appropriate helmet and gear, eating healthy on the road, and becoming an advocate for the motorcycle lifestyle. Topics for featured interactive presentations include an introduction to off-road motorcycling, competitive riding for women, and the essentials of motorcycle mechanics. Other events will be announced and added to the agenda as the conferences draws closer.
