We’re adding a ton of options to Registration ! Attendees can choose to add shirts, meals, workshops, group rides, sign up for room sharing and more to base registration costs – this allows a truly customized experience for every attendee.

The Women’s Sportbike Rally, an event for celebrating female sportbike riders, announces dates and locations for 2018 events.

Hemet, CA – October 13, 2017. The Women’s Sportbike Rally is entering it’s 13th year of women-focused events in 2018. The Annual West Rally is scheduled for July 13-15, 2018 and will take place in Camarillo, California at the Hilton Garden Inn.  The East Rally is scheduled for September 7-9, 2018 and will take place in Deals Gap, North Carolina at the Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge.

 “We are thrilled to bring the true essence of Southern California to the WEST event by moving rally headquarters to Camarillo, connecting attendees to both coastline and canyons. The EAST event has always been focused on our love of the Great Smoky Mountains and Iron Horse Motorcycle Lodge provides the perfect retreat in heart of Appalachia,” said National Director Brittany Morrow.

By offering workshops that cover topics such as track day prep, club level racing, women’s protective apparel, motorcycle maintenance and riding skills, the women who attend the rally will ride away with pertinent knowledge for their lifestyle that can be shared with others.

“Women who ride sportbikes want to know more about the performance-oriented machines they are riding. We give them one-on-one instruction on how to fix and upgrade their bikes, gearing up for protection while riding, and the skills to ride more safely. They also want to meet other women who share the same passions. We aim to provide as many of these resources as possible at both events,” says Joanne Donn, National Marketing Manager.

The theme for next year’s events is CHASE YOUR DREAMS.

 “Our events empower and encourage female sportbike riders to chase their dreams whether it’s improving lap times at the local track, racing for glory and riches, or riding sportbikes on the weekends just for fun,” said National Director Brittany Morrow.

In December 2016, Brittany Morrow, founder of RockTheGear.org and multi-curriculum certified safety instructor took over as the Rally’s National Director for both locations.

All Roads Lead to The Women’s Sportbike Rally West

Ladies, we know that not everyone has the same riding experience, so we put together a quick list for you of the various highways that lead to the Rally. Here are our recommendations for which roads to take depending on what your skill level is like.

  • Advanced:  330 – this road has the most consistent elevation change. Two lane road (one lane for each direction) with little to no passing visibility, climbs from San Bernardino to the top of the mountain range.
  • Advanced: 138 (from the north) – this road is twisty, with large elevation changes and technical turns, dark areas (lots of tree coverage) and a narrow two lanes (one in each direction) the entirety of the journey.
  • Intermediate: 18 then 138 – this route is two lanes with dividers through the entire climb up the mountain. Once at the top, the curves are not challenging, but the view can be VERY distracting, so keep your eyes on the road!
  • Intermediate-ish: 18 (from the north) – this route is pretty straight and boring until you have to climb to Big Bear. The twisties are tight and the elevation change is drastic, but it only lasts for a few miles. Butler Maps rates this road as difficult.  Take this route with a grain of salt and don’t get complacent.
  • Beginner:  38 – the least technical route with little-to-no traffic and a gradual elevation change, this is by far the longest way into Big Bear from San Bernardino.

Riding twisty roads can be intimidating and challenging so please remember to ride at your skill level, ask for help and if you can, take an advanced riding class or read up on riding curves before you take off for the Rally.
