The 2021 Husqvarna Motorcycles Women’s Trailride has been hailed as an amazing success, with 230 ladies taking part at Green Park, Conondale, with Jemma Wilson Events running the weekend.
“The all-ladies environment is really special and we truly promote an inclusive vibe – all the girls look out for one another, from three-year-olds right through to those in their 60s. We’ve had everybody from near first-timers and girls who used to race together around 10 years ago, so it’s really nice to see them crossing paths at our events. Because we encourage everybody to come by themselves and leaving the hubbies at home, we help in unloading bikes, provide professional mechanics who also help teach the girls, pied-pipers and heaps of sweep riders who are all hand-selected to be a wonderful help. We first did it in 2019 and had to cancel last year, so it was great to be back this year and we had the perfect amount of riders join in. Off-track, this time around we had some live music on Saturday night, a Young Henrys bar with cocktails being made as well, making new friends around the fire with women who have had the same experience as each-other that day, so it was fantastic. It’s so positive to see that everyone has to start somewhere, that riding can be such a great time and that we’re all there to have a good time together.”
The crew put on a brilliant weekend, encouraging women to get out and ride dirt bikes together, coupled with activities during the day, the highlight of which was the Ice Cream Relay Race, as well as live music and a bar by the campfire on Saturday night to recap the thrills of day one. Come Sunday, it was time to do it all over again!
From grass tracks to motocross, long and short enduro loops, the riding on offer catered to all different levels of experience and made for a memorable couple of days on the bike for all who were in attendance. The Husqvarna Motorcycles Women’s Trailride is the ultimate destination for ladies to get out and ride together in a professional event setting.
A selection of hand-picked experts were on location and available to make the experience as enjoyable as possible for everybody in attendance, including helpful mechanics who shared their knowledge along the way, pied-piper sweep riders and trained coaches assisted anywhere and everywhere throughout the two days.
Originally launched in 2019, last year was unable to go ahead, which led to even more anticipation for the 2021 return. Needless to say, the hundreds of riders and personnel each made the most of the occasion and had a remarkable time celebrating ladies’ involvement in the sport.
