The Sturgis Buffalo Chip® invites you to join a day of Real Women, Real Stories and Real Fun on Tuesday, Aug. 5 for the sixth annual Biker Belles® Celebration! Presented by Harley-Davidson®, the Biker Belles will begin at The Lodge at Deadwood with an inspiring symposium titled “Ride On.”
The symposium will begin with filmmaker, Michelle Carpenter, showing a clip from her new documentary about women riders, “Driven to Ride.” It will then continue on to feature a panel of leading industry women including motivational speaker and safety expert, Cat Hammes; Team Diva owner, Diva Amy Skaling; ROAR Motorcycles founder, Kathy Tolleson; National Online Director of Marketing & PR for Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys, Audrey Nesbitt; drag racer, Andie Gaskins; and others yet to be announced.
Following the symposium prepare for the ride by visiting The Comfort Zone by Team Diva. This retreat area of The Lodge at Deadwood will allow you to discover and experience new beauty care, fashion ware and ride gear made specifically for women riders!
Safety expert, Vicki Roberts-Sanfelipo, will serve as ride captain, guiding you on a breathtaking ride through the canyons of the Black Hills, leading to a special catered reception, fashion show featuring Harley-Davidson Motorclothes® and auction at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip.
Created to raise funds for South Dakota charities, Biker Belles bring women, their families and friends together to celebrate the role they play in shaping the culture, sport, art and the history of motorcycling.
All—men and women—are welcome to join our gathering of mentorship, riding and sharing. Riders are asked to make a contribution to join the ride and festivities, 100% of which will directly benefit two South Dakota charities that benefit women-related causes, the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame and Helping with Horsepower. Helping with Horsepower is a program that uses contributions to help abused and at-risk young women and girls. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum is world-class facility that uses the contributions to expand or enhance exhibits featuring women riders and their role in the history and culture of motorcycling.
