Hope you were able to squeeze in a New Year's ride for 2008. We took a lovely ride through Napa, Calistoga and Sonoma. It was great to get out and ride after an almost 2 week hiatus.
I hope to work even harder on my site this year. I feel like I haven't accomplished as much as I had hoped when I first started this last April. A few things I have in the works:
- videos (interviews) focusing on women and riding. Basically I'm talking to your average, everyday female rider. We're everywhere and we do everything from run small businesses unrelated to riding (*gasp*), have regular jobs like everyone else. I think there's always a unique story to tell behind every woman who rides and I'm in the process of telling it. I posted my most recent (and best so far, I think) video of a wonderful friend of mine by the name of Saskia Pardo who co-owns MotoJava (where we have purchased 3 out of 4 of the bikes we've owned so far!). Her story is unique as well and I was so honored that she let me capture it on film. I plan to do more of these this year as well, for fun as well as improving my video production skills.
- tshirts. I hope to have tshirts done by Feb 1st if possible. It took me a while to figure out what brand of tshirt I want to use, but I finally found what I was looking for.
-more videos. I plan to take my camera out this summer to some women's trackdays and possibly Femmoto to interview more women!
I have updated my Getting Started page with some tips when you're shopping for gear, if you've never shopped before! If you're not lucky enough to live somewhere that has a knowledgeable staff when it comes to women's gear, then I hope this helps.
