The percentage of motorcycle owners who are women has risen in recent years, from 8 percent in 1998 to 14 percent at the end of 2015, according to the Motorcycle Industry Council’s Motorcycle Owner Survey. As that number increases, it’s likely that the number of women’s riding groups is growing as well.
Today, especially with the help of social media, it can be easy for women to find a local women-only riding group to join and enjoy the camaraderie that riding has to offer. As more women start riding motorcycles, it appears they’re also contributing to a growing riding culture of supporting meaningful causes and community organizations.
