2015 Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit & DS Ride

Calling all ADV Women!!!

The Steel Horse Sisterhood is community of Women who ride motorcycles. The Steel Horse Sisterhood:

-Is a collaboration of the life stories of women who live, giving of their time and talents for the benefit of others
-Is a community of women who share the love of the ride, the love of each other and what fuels their passion
-Transcends age, race, economics, religion, borders and abilities
-Is a spiritual connection

http://www.steelhorsesisterhood.com/

The 2015 Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit will be in Loveland, CO June 11-14. In addition to dozens of classes and key note speakers at the Summit; there will be TWO GUIDED RIDES Monday June 15 - Friday June 19. Up to 20 Dual Sport Women will ride a dual sport route, while up to 20 "Cruiser" Women will ride a paved route. Guided rides will begin in Loveland, CO; ride to Saratoga, WY Monday; to Thermopolis, WY Tuesday, to Cody, WY Wednesday. Thursday will be a "lay over day" in Cody before riding the historic Chief Joseph and Beartooth Passes into Red Lodge, MT.

This ride is all inclusive:

-Meals, hotel rooms, setup and guide services.
-Water, sports beverages and healthy meals will also be provided throughout each day of riding.
-The Steel Horse Sisterhood Beartooth Ride guide book
-SHS Ride T-shirt
-Farewell dinner in Red Lodge evening of Friday, June 19th, 2015

There will also be film crews filming different parts of the ride with the intention of creating a film documentary in the future.

The Dual Sport Guided Ride is made possible by Western Dual Sport Motorcycle Adventures and Patricia (Pat) Jacques AKA Patj551. I'm excited to be guiding the DS route and to be a keynote speaker at the event. Western Dual Sport Motorcycle Adventures is also sponsoring beginner "Dual Sport Clinics" at the Summit, will lead a men's DS ride on Friday, offer discounts on DS rentals for the June 15-19 guided ride, and is sponsoring the Support Vehicle following the ride.

While most of the SHS members and attendees ride street bikes, we thought it was an tremendous opportunity to expose these women who already ride to the fun and adventure of dual sport riding!

For more information, here is a link to the SHS Summit:

http://www.steelhorsesisterhoodsummit.com/

Special thanks also goes to Butler Maps for donating maps which were very helpful in ride planning. Thank you!

This ride will be a 50/50 mixture of dirt & pavement, "big bike friendly." We will spend the night at TWO HOT SPRINGS. The ride route includes many "bail out" options if a rider chooses not to ride the dirt sections. Scenery will include alpine, bad lands, canyons, prarie, rivers, lakes, scenic byways, and several "Butler GOLD STANDARD" sections,

Below are screen prints showing the planned DS route. As always, these routes may be subject to change depending on weather conditions.

Monday- Loveland, CO to Saratoga, WY



Tuesday Saratoga, WY to Thermopolis, WY


Wednesday Thermopolis, WY to Cody, WY



Friday Cody, WY to Red Lodge, MT

Wow - this sounds like a wonderful event. I really wish I could do the dual-sport ride up into WY and MT. That would be AWESOME! Unfortunately I have a scheduling conflict. I may see if there's any way I can at least attend the Sisterhood Summit. One of my DRs is already in storage down in the Lower 48, patiently waiting for me to fly down and get her out riding again and CO is one of my high-priority destinations this summer. I wish we had events like this up in Alaska.

LOL! You want to come down here and ride! I want to go up there and ride! We're both pretty lucky! The 2015 SHS Summit is shaping up to be awesome! There will be presentations & clinics on everything from riding, to travelling alone, to mechanics, to yoga, to negotiating, to personal health, to safety, to NRA marksmanship, etc! There will also be a "man cave" for the fellas that dare to come!

Is the "man cave" at the end of the marksmanship tunnel?

If you make it up to Alaska, let me know. I'll ride with you and/or give you a place to stay. We have spectacular scenery up here. We just don't have many roads. Riding both the Dalton Hwy and Dempster Hwy is absolutely amazing; hundreds of miles of wilderness stretching endlessly, only marred by the view of huge semi-trucks and trailers hurtling down the road towards you, kicking up blinding dust! Three summers ago I flew my DR up to Nome and spent nine days riding around the scenic Seward Peninsula. It was incredible, with minimal traffic. I hope to spend time riding in the mountains of CO, WY, MT, and NM over the next few years, which is why I stored a bike down in NV.

I like the "man cave" idea. I recently attended the ADV Death Valley DAZE get-together and I was the only female. I guess the "female cave" at that event was my tent!

Cheers!
