“I am incredibly excited about hosting my first live Women’s Motorcycle Festival and Conference,” stated Clickenger. “Before Covid-19, Tigra Tsujikawa and I traveled around the USA scouting and promoting the Centennial Ride, and talking to other female motorcyclists. The idea for a Live Women’s Festival and Conference grew out of those conversations. Even then women were craving the opportunity to connect with other women passionate about the motorcycle lifestyle in a meaningful way. I am convinced that the need for this sense of community and connection has only gotten stronger over the past year. And now that the world is opening up once again, we are perfectly poised to deliver a memorable event in the perfect time and place.”

The Women’s Motorcycle Festival and Conference boasts an activity and speaker line-up no female motorcycle rider will want to miss! Gathering in the thriving and beautiful Crystal City district in Arlington, Virginia, attendees will be able to participate in four full days of education, inspiration, professional development, seminars, connection sessions (networking), as well as a historic ride through Washington, D.C. and an outdoor ride festival … and so much more! 

“The evolution of this event has been such a wonderful process, with Tigra and I building upon each others’ ideas and inspiring each other to generate more and more colorful ideas for the conference. By sharing our mutual enthusiasm for supporting lady motorcycle riders and the sport of motorcycling, it’s been an absolutely amazing experience crafting this innovate and inclusive event. This event is a great example of the magic that can happen when passionate women motorcycle riders come together and share ideas…which is the exact reason why the both of us create and lead these experiences for women,” said Clickenger.
