Ladies ready to ride

Gals and motorbikes. What a great combination.

The third annual Women’s Ride Day, created by the ladies of West Coast Roar for Women in Need and Cowichan Women Against Violence, is scheduled for Sunday, July 19 this year, starting from Country Grocer at Valleyview Centre in Cobble Hill.

What started out as a small gathering has turned into a major event and you can be part of it.

This event is open to everyone but it’s a women-only ride.

If men wish to go on the ride, they must ride on the back of a woman’s bike.

Notables on hand to enjoy the event will be the Hon. Judith Guichon, B.C.’s Lt. Governor, Malahat First Nation Chief Michael Harry, CVRD Chair Jon Lefebure, representatives of the BC Nurses Union and motorcycle guru and parade grand marshall, Steve Drane.

The cost to take part is $25 per person and that includes T-shirt, lunch and ride.

Registration starts at 9 a.m. with kickstands up at 10:30 a.m. All the proceeds raised go to Cowichan Women Against Violence and Women in Need (WIN) Victoria.

In addition to the ride itself, there’s a silent auction, barbecue lunch by donation with support from Schneider’s and Pepsi.

And there’s rock ‘n’ roll entertainment from David Gogo and more, Mitch and the Baroness, plus a Show Shine from member of the South Island Straight Liners Racing Association.
