FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists (WCM) is dedicated to doubling the number of female riders by 2020. In pursuit of this goal, we are partnering with author Tamela Rich on a contest to win autographed copies of her latest book, “Hit the Road; A Woman’s Guide to Solo Motorcycle Touring.” Winners will have their best road stories published quarterly in the WCM Newsletter with links from our Facebook page. Tamela will also partner with WCM to fund scholarships for current riders to improve their skills.
“One way to double the number of women motorcyclists is to normalize the sport and lifestyle through supportive educational programming like the “Best Road Story” contest,” says WCM Executive Board Member Lisa Malachowsky. “Another is to encourage rider safety and skills programming like our scholarship fund.”
Tamela’s reputation and her professionalism as a motorcyclist directly reinforce the WCM’s programming. Her two books celebrating the motorcycling lifestyle strongly advocate for getting proper training before hitting the road, and for continually advancing riders skills.
“Motorcycle touring has opened a new world to me—from exploring the natural world and history, to new skills, and friendships with other motorcyclists. Anything I can do to encourage more women to join the two-wheeled lifestyle is both my privilege and pleasure,” says Tamela.
The WCM will promote this contest and the other aspects of our partnership with Tamela on our website and through our Facebook page.
