How much riding experience do I need to have?
– NONE. You don’t even need to know how to ride in order to attend. As long as you’re a woman and are interested in sportbike riding, we would love to have you. You’ll meet women from all walks of life, with the opportunity to ask questions and make new friends (for life). Even if you’ve been riding for 20-30 years, we will have something for you too, including seminars from industry professionals and local ride routes. Best of all, you’ll have the opportunity to meet other women who ride! Keep in mind that the roads around our events can vary from intermediate to advanced, so you need to be responsible for your own level of safety. We encourage you to learn from each other, grow, laugh, and enjoy every moment.
Are men allowed at the events?
– Men, women and children are welcome as guests of a registered Woman for no additional fee. The registration page allows for “guest name” additions and gives us an estimate for the number of attendees in advance, which really helps us out.
*Please note: guests do not get a goody bag, are not eligible for door prize drawings and are not invited to attend workshops.
Where should I stay?
– That’s easy! Check out the events tab in our main menu for tons of information on recommended accommodations.
How do I get there?
– A few suggestions:
What if I don’t know anyone else going?
– Connection is just a click away! Thanks to social media, you can view event RSVPs and participate in group discussions on our Facebook page, check out comments and hashtags on our Instagram account or Twitter account to see who’s attending the rally. If you sign up for a guided group ride after registration, we’ll even send you a link to a private group discussion so you can meet the girls you’ll be riding with. If all else fails, send us an email and we’ll help you connect with someone before you arrive.
How do I register?
-A few easy steps
If you need even more detailed information on this process, there’s a REGISTRATION link in our main menu.
Are there discounts for groups/MCs/military?
– Everyone is equal at the WSR, so we do not provide discounts on the cost of registration to any groups or individuals. If you are US Armed Services, we thank you for your selfless contribution to our country. We do have a group rate for our host hotels. You can find that information on the ACCOMMODATIONS link in our main menu. WEST Group Code: WSR
I’ve never been to a rally before. How do I know where to go?
– You’re in luck! We provide a quick informational meeting and meet&greet called Rally 101 before the Friday night event. You can sign up for Rally 101 during Step 3 of registration. You’ll also get a map and a printed schedule during check-in. Last but not least, just look for the sportbike girls and follow them, we guarantee you’ll make new friends quickly!
I’m concerned about overnight parking – where do I park my bike/trailer?
– The host hotel at each event has dedicated night security and ample and safe parking for everyone attending, including truck and trailer parking.
Can I bunk with someone/search for a rally roommate/offer an extra bed in my room?
– Yes! Send us an email letting us know which rally you’re attending (WEST or EAST) and that you’re looking for a roommate. We’ll send you an invitation to our private group discussion on Facebook for those looking to share.
I have food allergies/follow a special diet, what/where/when do we eat?
– In order to keep things simple, we only provide meals at the activities marked in the schedule details as Food Provided. You are welcome to cook if your accommodation has a kitchen/grill, bring your own food and snacks from home, eat at one of the many local restaurants, or order food during official rally activities held at restaurants.
Is there a pool?
– Why yes, yes there is. Feel free to take a dip anytime during open pool hours.
Are helmets required?
– California, Tennessee and North Carolina State Laws require the use of helmets at all times regardless of age. For more information on surrounding state laws, please click here.
What if there is an accident?
– We keep a copy of your emergency contact on hand to aid in the communication process in case of a crash. It is important to take precautions when riding a motorcycle, especially out of your local area. We suggest always riding in a group of 2 or more, especially at night. Keep identification and important medical information on you at all times. If possible, wear an emergency medical ID such as a RoadID bracelet. Some areas will have limited or no cell coverage, so plan accordingly and bring a paper map if necessary. Most importantly, always ride within your limits.
*Please note: At check-in, you’ll be asked to sign a waiver of liability and provide an emergency contact phone number.
What does my registration fee include?
– Detailed information on what’s included can be found here.
Where does my hard-earned money go?
– An automatic $10 donation to the Skin Cancer Foundation is made with every registration. After event costs and operating costs are covered, our net proceeds at the end of each year are donated to the Skin Cancer Foundation in memory of Tiffany “sportbikegirl” Weirbach.
