Las Vegas, Nev.—Certified Motorcycle’s Mother Rucker Choppers Foundation will host a weekend-long celebration to kick off its inaugural Nevada Female Ride Month on Friday, May 5th through Sunday, May 7th, 2017. The event, which coincides with International Female ride Day on May 6, is for like-minded women to deepen their passion for motorcycles, build a sisterhood and support the community. Female motorcycle enthusiasts from all over are encouraged to attend.
With over 172 years of combined riding experience, the 11 women of Mother Rucker Choppers Foundation aim to draw attention to the underrepresented market of female motorcycle enthusiasts. Female riders represent 25 percent, or $6 billion, of industry sales annually
Nate Scott, co-owner of Certified Motorcycles and founder of the Mother Rucker Choppers Foundation, said “I feel like we have a responsibility to support those who go unacknowledged. In the motorcycle community there’s a lot of focus on brotherhood and sisterhood. Sisterhood should have support; brotherhood has a lot of support. Instead of celebrating a day, it should be a whole month. That’s why we’re supporting this event.”
The main event will begin on Friday, May 5 from 6:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. with a family-friendly meet-and-greet featuring a female-only bike showcase of custom and original motorcycles at Certified Motorcycles located at 7035 S. Sahara Ave. Las Vegas, NV 89117.
On Saturday, May 6, the International Female Ride Day organized ride begins at 9:00 a.m. at Certified Motorcycles. The ride will be the first major ride in Las Vegas to coincide with the annual event, bringing together thousands of women around the globe. The ride celebration continues with a Gala at the host hotel, W Hotel’s rooftop pool from 7:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m., at which the women of the Armed Forces will also be recognized.
Throughout the month of May, the foundation will host several other events hoping to empower women to follow their passions and breathe positivity into the local Las Vegas community. Some of these events will include delivering necessities to women’s shelters and visiting with children in hospitals.
