WOMEN RIDERS WORLD RELAY

FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE

Women Riders World Relay (WRWR) is a global female motorcycle relay, covering even the remote and vast parts of our world. This involves women passing a handcrafted baton via “legs” of a journey across the world woman to woman, country to country. 

The goal of this massive endeavor: To unite and inspire women globally and to show the motorcycling industry that women are not only the fastest growing market segment but that we are already a viable market and deserve consideration from the manufacturers and retailers!

The relay started on 27th February from John O’Groats, Scotland and comes to a close in January

2020 in UAE. The baton arrives in Canada, in Vancouver, British Columbia on September 14th, 2019.

In an ambitious 11 day ride the baton will travel with the women Guardians via legs across the country from British Columbia to New Brunswick where it will be passed on to WRWR USA at the Saint Stephen-Calais border crossing on September 24th, 2019.

WRWR was setup on 29th August 2018 by Hayley Bell, a 27 year old rider from the UK.

“I wanted to ignite a global sisterhood of inspirational women to promote courage,adventure, unity and passion for biking from all corners of the world and do something that’s never been done before to this scale. Going into motorcycle stores and seeing a lack of choice, combined with stereotypical pink and being told “there just isn’t the market for women”, highlighted to me just one small element of a much bigger picture around women in Motorsports. I want to show the industry the force behind the market that is so blindly overlooked. I am doing this because WOMEN BIKERS CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN.”  Hayley Bell, Founder
