Loveland, CO., June 28, 2016
- The natural beauty of Ouray, nestled in the San Juan Loop of the Rocky
Mountains of Colorado was bathed in morning sunlight and cast a stunning
backdrop and forward thinking view to the 3rd Women's Motorcycle Summit
hosted by the S.T.R.O.N.G. Women of the Steel Horse Sisterhood.
The event, featuring the 1st America's Summit Challenge,
could not have turned out more perfect. Over 65 women riders took to the
highways encompassing westward Moab, Utah, eastward Grand Junction, and
southward Durango, both located in beautiful Colorado. 1st
America's Summit Challenge featured prime riding areas we have all heard
the names of: Hwy 128, also known as the Upper Colorado River Scenic
Byway including part of the Dinosaur Diamond Prehistoric Highway; the
Colorado National Monument; The Grand Mesa; the Black Canyon of the
Gunnison; the Scenic Hwy 145 following the San Miguel River to Telluride;
and of course, the infamous MILLION DOLLAR HIGHWAY. The western
Colorado setting perfectly complemented this year's theme of the event.
The S.T.R.O.N.G. Women of the Steel Horse Sisterhood
reflected their ambitious mission of inspiring growth in women's lives
and in the sport of women & motorcycling by hosting this
summit. Women who registered to compete in the Summit Challenge
were provided a 92-page "Clue Book" containing over 70
fascinating waypoints. An inspiring photo shoot in Ridgeway,
located on a river's edge surrounded by "Legends of the West",
an old western movie set and featuring renowned photographer, Marla
Rutherford drew the participation of over 35 women riders. The
Steel Horse Sisterhood big top tent was where the action happened once
ladies were "off the road". Base camped at Twin Peaks Lodge
& Hot Springs at the foot of the Million Dollar Highway, the featured
location provided the setting for the female participants to enjoy their
off time, sharing meals, entertainment, live music and the silent
auction. Lifetime friendships were forged. Star performers,
inspiring keynote speakers and challenging riding to discover the locations,
obvious and hidden, requiring GPS coordinates once competition began, was
the norm throughout this event.
Keynote speakers featured Joan Krenning, STEEL HORSE
SISTERHOOD; Pat Jacques, ADVWOMAN; June Cline, MAKE IT A GREAT RIDE; and
Sandy Aguilera, STAR CONCEPTS; gave inspirational and challenging
presentations. The fact that these women are all risk takers, visionaries
in their fields as well as seasoned motorcyclists became evident to all
"Women are not undergoing evolution or revolution but
a metamorphosis." It is a time to be visionary now, more than ever.
It is a time for women to share all of their visions for innovative
change to help create a "world devoid of domestic violence and
