Our most frequently asked questions:
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 attendee (limited to 2 guests per attendee)
*Please note: guests do not get a goody bag, are not eligible for door prize drawings and are only invited to attend workshops if under max capacity. Please click on the Tickets link after you’ve selected your Event Registration link for West or East.
Where should I stay?
– That’s easy! Rally Headquarters (East Rally 2018 – Iron Horse MC Resort). The Iron Horse is a MOTORCYCLE RESORT. That’s right, just for riders who are looking for a place to stay while they slay the dragon. That means everything is thought out and put together for motorcyclists to fully enjoy their stay. That means, ramps to easily load your bike. Lots of motorcycle parking and less car parking. That also means many different accommodation choices depending on how YOU want to stay.
Love to camp? Book a tent spot. Want a little luxury? Book an apartment suite. Trying to stay under budget? Book a solo bunk bed.
And everything is happening on site, from our Rally 101 and Michelin Movie Night on Friday night to Workshops Saturday morning to group photos Saturday morning, to the ROKHard Breakfast on Sunday morning.
It’s all at the Iron Horse so you won’t miss anything. See you soon!

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 name & phone number.
What does my registration fee include?
