Buffalo Chip, SD (Jan. 30, 2018) – Availability of the special premium package upgrade for the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s® 10th annual Biker Belles Celebration has been extended for just a few days to Feb. 9. The addition of two new symposium panelists and the all-women’s “Women & Wheels Bike Show™” presented by Wild Gypsy Tour, make this deal even more appealing. The inclusive event set to take place on Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2018 celebrates women in motorcycling and offers participants a day of real riders, real stories and real passion. Biker Belles was created in 2009 to raise awareness of the passion, diversity and spirit of women in motorcycling and to raise funds for local worthy charities.
Shifting Gears Symposium Panelists
Moto-traveler and journalist Alisa Clickenger, and motivational rider and health coach Leah Misch will both participate in the inspiring symposium, titled “Shifting Gears.” Clickenger credits motorcycling with saving her life. She has ridden across the globe, on dirt and pavement, bringing her message of support and empowerment particularly to women. Misch escaped a horribly abusive relationship and obesity, turning her life around through exercise and motorcycling. As a health coach and independent nurse, she has run eight marathons and ridden over 21,000 miles. More information on 2018 Biker Belles’ special guests can be found here.
