For three years now, the Riders Plus Insurance, Ottawa Motorcycle Show has offered female motorcyclists information on motorcycles, gear, fashions and organizations. Always a popular booth.
This year we welcome Holly Ralph to the booth, along with the return of Motor Maids and the WindSisters organizations.
Holly is a long-time rider and sought after speaker. She is currently the Vice-president of the Canadian Motorcycle Association, former chair of the CVMG Paris National Rally, frequent rally chair of BMWMOA International Rally. She has been the Canadian delegate to FIM Rally in Europe for the past four years, and a speaker at Americade in 2014 and the AMA Women in Motorcycling Conference. Holly rides 10,000-20,000 km each year, riding solo most of the time but also enjoys riding with others, mentoring along the way.
Holly loves encouraging riders to ride safely and happily and to continue to ride whatever their obstacles. She has lots of experience and can show the history of the many fabulous women riders in Canada, who have too long been unknown.
She lived in Ottawa for quite a while and showed her Norton Atlas at an Ottawa Motorcycle show in 1969. Holly is looking forward to returning to Ottawa for our show. Read more about Holly Ralph in this 2013 Canadian Biker Article by Nancy Irwin.
The WindSisters is a group of women motorcyclists from Ottawa and surrounding areas. Their group has grown quickly to just shy of 250 ladies. Their energy and enthusiasm certainly added to the Riding Her Way booth last year. We welcome them back again this year. Be sure to stop by and say hello to Linda and the women of WindSisters.
Motor Maids Inc. was founded in 1940 and is the first women’s motorcycling organization in North America. The Canadian chapter of the Motor Maids was created in 1949.
With over 1,200 members across Canada and the United States, the Motor Maids are a diverse group of women motorcyclists united through a passion for riding while fostering a positive image and promoting safe riding skills.
