Spring Women’s Weekend at Union Garage

Posted in: Events, Ride Report

According to the latest industry statistics, female riders account for about 13% of motorcyclists in the U.S. (That figure goes up to 25% if you factor in those riding as passengers too). We're all about growing those numbers in any way we can, and are dedicating this weekend to riders of the fairer sex—through a store-wide sale, an inspirational Ride Report presentation in-store Saturday Night, and a Sunday morning ride out (guys are welcome too, but only as a plus-one).

First up: Gear sale! Stop by Saturday or Sunday (May 6-7) to save 10-20% off an expanded selection of women’s gear.

Next: If you’re free Saturday night, please join us for an encore presentation by Tracy Motz, recounting her near-accidental foray into motorcycling that turned into a life-changing 3-year road trip, and subsequent career in the industry. This was one of our most popular Ride Report presenation last year, and now with additional never-before-seen camcorder footage to add to the presentation it should be all the more entertaining and inspirational.

Finally: Sunday morning we’re meeting at the store at 8AM for our first-ever Women’s Ride Out. We’ll have coffee and bagels waiting and plan to be on the road by 8:30. We’re planning to go at a casual pace through backroads of New Jersey and New York, and the official ride will terminate at a brewery upstate where we’ll stop for lunch. Guys are welcome too, but only as a Plus-1.

Bonus: If you can’t make it any of these local events-don’t despair! We’re also running an online contest with REV’IT! to give away a healthy prize pack of riding gear.
