A Look Back at 2018 The Future of Motorcycling - Ride Like a Local TV S6 E5 Featured

Ride Like A Local LogoRide Like a Local was at the Edmonton Motorcycle Show and visited the Babes on Bikes booth.

We spoke with Reta, who is almost 40 years of age and has been riding for 2 years, and Natalie, who is 55 years of age and has been riding for 10 years.

When asked why they think there are fewer lady riders and younger riders, the ladies had some good thoughts.  They think maybe it's the fear that holds the lady riders back.  The traditional stereotype of bikers can be pretty scary.  It's a scary thought to be on a bike, on the road, with nothing around you to protect you.  We need to educate them on how a bike works and foster their confidence. We can attract the younger generation by talking to them, continuing the conversation, and encouraging them to try.

Mothers, don't hold your daughter's back and please, expose them early.

When speaking on Babes on Bikes, they say they have a weekly ride about 2 hours long.  They always stop for ice cream!  At the end of the day, everyone gathers for feedback and to check and make sure everyone is alright.

Babes on Bikes...Amazing support and living life to the fullest!
