The first survey is available via a link on our website and will be distributed to as many female riders in the USA as possible via social media. You can also access it directly at; http://bit.ly/CABTrainingSurvey.
The Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists (WCM) has embarked on a data collection project that no other powersports entity has attempted to date: we are researching the key challenges that are holding more women back from becoming and staying avid motorcycle riders. We believe that many potential inhibitors would be targets for improvement with appropriate supporting evidence. No industry analyst to date has taken on this issue and provided feedback to the industry in a brand-agnostic manner. We intend to do this and share our results with the industry in early 2021 at AIMEXPO.
Thank you all for attending the WCM Town Hall meeting of women’s motorcycle club officers. The enthusiasm shared and wealth of ideas among the powerhouse group of women on the ZOOM was tremendously inspiring. We all agreed on the benefits of establishing a national network of clubs to share resources that would support women riders to safety enter our sport, to join the sisterhood and to gain mentorship.
The next national club network planning meeting will be held on October 18, 2020. I am asking for your help to invite other club officers and/or representatives to this conversation. Please forward this email to anyone you know who would be interested in helping us develop our network of clubs. Have them complete the Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclist Club Contact List to receive the email announcement for the October 18 ZOOM meeting.
