Babes Ride Out
The Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride is fast approaching this month and is becoming more well known and successful each year. Some members of the QCrew, however, don’t traditionally qualify to ride in this event. For you, here’s a look at another organized ride that is taking on larger propoartions every year – and is decidedly NOT for gentlemen.
Babes Ride Out was founded by Ashmore & Anya who, in their own words, “wanted to meet more women who ride. At the time, each of us knew only a handful of other female riders, mostly through social media whom we’d never met. After posting a make-shift flyer on Instagram, our first event ‘Babes in Borrego’ was born. News about the campout spread as far as New York City and to our surprise, 50 riders from all over the US and Canada showed up at the meet up spot in Temecula to ride out to our first event.”
“We knew we wanted to share this experience with more female motorcyclists so we made the event annual which resulted in 50 riders turning into 500 and 500 turning into 1200 riders within 2 years. What started as a no-frills campout on a dry lake bed has become a global community of like-minded women who connect through a love of riding motorcycles. Good times, good friends, two wheels.”
