Who doesn’t love biker chicks? This morning Harley-Davidson launched the 8th annual Women’s Ride in conjunction with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) at Bike Week in Daytona Beach, Florida. My fellow female riders had to raise at least $50.00 each for the MDA by March 10th in order to qualify to participate in the ride, and who wouldn’t want to do that? Fifty riders took part, raising a grand total of $11,743.13, which was well short of their projected goal of $25,000, but still a grand contribution to a good cause. The ladies were scheduled to go “kickstands up” at 10 am in what looked to be a pristine spring day of riding and camaraderie. All the gals received a commemorative pin and a special Women’s Ride flag to display their support, and there was lots of other swag to be handed out to riders who raised $150.00 or more. The top participants in descending order of donation amounts were; Tina Railer, Caj Pinero, Linda Kersey, Rain Tabraham Winter and Wende Brown, who collectively raised just shy of $2,500.00 themselves. Let’s give a high-five to Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona H-D, FloridaFullThrottle.com and BikersPost.com for sponsoring this great event.
