Hairpin

Notes on being a boss bitch

I recently put together a couple article for the new women's moto magazine: Hairpin. 

Check them out. The Girl Boss article here and the Dream Roll article here.

"Hairpin is based around motorcycling, but more than that, it’s the embodiment of a feeling that riding brings. It’s wild, whimsical and unrestricted. It’s about being in charge, having fun, being happy, being indulgent, being part of something. About taking life in your own hands and backing whatever happens.

Hairpin brings together this wave of free thinking and celebrates unity, both online and in traditional print media (soon-to-be-released, we’ll keep you posted!). We’re not here to appeal to the masses, so we aren’t safe and conservative. We’re here for one audience only – women who ride and women who love the road. 

We’re talking to moto babes all over the world about what’s going on in their neck of the woods. What they love most about riding and where they live; what ticks them off; the adventures they’ve had and the views they hold; and what topic is most likely to get the women they know debating passionately long into the night.

Hairpin is a supportive hub for our community - a sounding board, an advisor and a filter that will take you straight to the good stuff. Stay a while and have a poke around. Sometimes it’s nice to step out of your own bubble and take a look at someone else’s. Because you can never know too much about the world, or the sisters we share it with."

International Female Ride Day Vancouver 2017

This past Saturday was the biggest and best International Female Ride Day I've hosted yet! There was over 55 women who showed up at International Motorsports and even more that joined along the way. I raffled off some prizes, we drank coffee and then rode out to Delta to the Owl and Raptor Rehabilitation Centre where we got to watch them release 2 rehabilitated bald eagles back into the wild. It was insanely cool. There were a couple owls there too and damn those things are majestic. Also, a snake shit on me. Overall it was a really hilarious and awesome day. Thanks so much to everyone who came out!! Here's some photos from the day.

International Female Ride Day: Vancouver

International Female Ride Day is coming up !! This will be the 4th year that Road Apples organizes a ride in Vancouver/BC. Last year we did Victoria @ Wheelies Motorcycles and it was a fucking blast. This year will be back in Vancouver but with a twist. We're going to meet at International Motorsports on 2nd Ave at 10:30am on May 6th, drink some coffee, do a raffle with prizes from Converse, Brixton, Stance & The Dream Roll and then head out towards the O.W.L Rehabilitation Centre in Delta. They're having an open house on the same day we're doing the ride (May 6th) so were going to go check out some owls and raptors and even watch one of these birds being released back into the wild.

Ladies only! Anyone is welcome to the meet up at International Motorsports but ladies only on the ride! See you babes soon! More information on the poster below or the Facebook group: https://www.facebook.com/events/1791288931191865/

The Wild Ones

We have announced another killer moto trip that consists of motorcycling around parts of Europe, meeting other ladies motorcyclists and having a dream ride come true. It's called "The Wild Ones" and it will be taking place throughout the entire month of July, 2016.

"The Wild One’s tour celebrates the courage and spirit of women motorcyclists’, inspiring others to explore without boundaries. This July, The Women's Moto Exhibit will ride on motorcycles through the Alps; starting in Austria, moving through Switzerland and ending in Italy. The journey will begin in the small village of Meiming, Austria, travel through the breathtaking Rechen pass, through the hundreds of tight switchbacks of the Oberlap Pass in Switzerland, to the witch shaped mountain of The Matterhorn, and end in the Dolomites of Italy.Not only will the ladies visit historic landmarks and events, they will also meet and connect with communities of women motorcyclists along the way. Their goal is to inspire and share stories; to illustrate that women are capable of anything. Lanakila MacNaughton, photographer of The Women’s Moto Exhibit, will document the journey and share it with the world in real time. Lanakila’s work has been published in many media outlets, including Oprah Magazine, People, Huffington Post, and Elle Online. Her work has been seen as representing this new generation of women riders. The trip is Lanakila’s foray into European territory.

Wanderlust and travel are an endless search for clarity and understanding. This trip will be an adventure and to adventure is to be alive."
