Thousands of motorcyclists recently flooded into the busy touring town of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, for the annual Myrtle Beach Bike Week Spring Rally, continuing a trend of re-gathering and opening up of society as the pressures of the pandemic eases.
And, this year anyway, the women motorcyclists at the rally garnered some special attention.
The Myrtle Beach Sun News featured a story entitled with the following, eye-catching headline: ‘Women don’t want to be on the back anymore’: Woman bikers show up to Myrtle Beach Bike Week.
The writer then went on to quote different female riders she interviewed at the rally about their experience.
Included is Michelle Jamison from Minnesota, who said she hopes to encourage other women to license up and ride.
“If they see somebody else doing it that looks like them or acts like them, they know they can do it, too,” Jamison said in the article. It’s worth the read. And, if you were at Myrtle Beach this month and have photos to share, please let us know.
