Lake Tahoe Adventure Ride & Rendezvous Donates Grand Prize: Tickets for 2 + Lodging for Friday May, 4 2012: International Female Ride Day Party, San Francisco

San Francisco, April 19, 2012 -- Some lucky woman motorcyclist will win two tickets and lodging for the Lake Tahoe Adventure Ride & Rendezvous event during the San Francisco’s International Female Ride Day party. The party is happening on Friday, May 4, 4-7 pm at Moto Shop, 325 South Maple Ave, #20 in South San Francisco. Co-founder of the event, Carl Ribaudo, will be riding from Tahoe to present the grand prize, which includes three nights lodging at the Lakeside Inn and Casino.

On this 6th International Female Ride Day the theme is “JUST RIDE!” and women motorcyclists everywhere have planned events, group rides, or are simply riding to work or to do whatever they do. The purpose for this unified day is to bring awareness of the numbers of women who ride, to unify women in motorcycling, no matter what they ride, and to encourage other women to adopt the sport. Women from around the world participate in this globally-synchronized day, including women in Australia, Greece, Russia, India, Hungary, and beyond. The event was founded by Vicki Gray of MOTORESS, an online women's motorcycle magazine devoted to women motorcycle enthusiasts of all ages and styles.

Men and women from all over the San Francisco Bay Area are welcome to join in no matter what they ride (motorcycles, scooters, trikes, sidecars). Other local businesses providing prizes are MAD Maps, BMW Motorcycles of San Francisco, SF Moto, Scuderia West, City Bike, Infineon Raceway, and more sponsors to come. Unfortunately, only women riders are eligible to win these fabulous prizes.

Come meet other women riders, show off your bike, or find out how you might learn to ride. The event is organized by Joanne Donn, founder of GearChic, Aleks Grippo, co-owner of Moto Shop, and Carla King, author of the Motorcycle Misadventures series of books and online dispatches from the road. Let us know how you want to participate.

You must be present to win!
