The WCM will increase the participation of females in all disciplines of motorcycling as it grows the number of motorcyclists overall.Our goal is to double our numbers by 2020.
Trailblazer Effie Hotchkiss and her mom, Avis, were the first women to cross the USA on a motorcycle in 1915. Nearly a century later, on March 17, 2012, 18-year-old Elena Myers was the first female motorcycle roadracer to win a professional motorsports race of any kind on the Daytona International Speedway. Women riders have come a long way, but not far enough. That’s ALL about to change with the formation of the Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists (WCM), which has united representatives from the American Motorcyclist Association, MAD Maps, Motor Maids, Pro Convention, the Women’s International Motorcycle Association USA, Women in the Wind, Women On Wheels® and the Women’s Motorcyclist Foundation in a shared objective: to double the number of female riders by 2020, and to increase and support women riders and their advocates.
Promoting dynamic role models and wider riding opportunities will serve as catalysts to draw more women into all aspects of motorcycling. The WCM will establish motorcycle industry partnerships to build a scholarship fund. The fund will support aspiring female rider coaches and instructors, as well as promising female competitors in all disciplines: on-road, off-road, and on the track.
