Experience a day of Real Riders, Real Stories and Real Passion during the 12th annual Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Biker Belles Celebration.

On Tuesday, Aug. 11, from 8:00 a.m. to 2 p.m., you’re invited to join a day of relaxing and uplifting festivities that celebrate the fastest growing segment in the motorcycling—WOMEN!—while supporting organizations benefitting women’s causes.

GRAB LIFE BY THE HANDLEBARS

The Biker Belles Morning Ride™ will lead you on a guided journey through the beautiful Black Hills from The Lodge at Deadwood to a symposium and reception at the Buffalo Chip CrossRoads. Here, leading industry women will discuss their experiences with motorcycling during an inspiring symposium.

SHARE YOUR PASSION

The Buffalo Chip Women & Wheels™ Bike Show presented by the Wild Gypsy Tour allows you to see some of the coolest female-owned bikes and learn the stories behind them.

UNWIND WITH YOUR WIND SISTERS

Pamper yourself at the reception by visiting the Comfort Zone by Team Diva. Take advantage of this well-deserved opportunity to discover and experience new beauty care, fashion wear and riding gear made specifically for women in this retreat area! 

FEED YOUR HUNGER FOR KNOWLEDGE

Enjoy a delicious catered lunch while taking in stories from our symposium panelists. While you’re there, be sure to check out the phenomenal auction items and place your bids.

LIVE WITH PURPOSE

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip created the Biker Belles for two complementary purposes.

  1. To raise awareness of the passion, diversity and spirit of women in motorcycling, celebrating women’s role in shaping the culture, art and history of motorcycling.
  2. To use the event to raise funds for local charities that would be of particular interest to these very women. This charity event has been raising monies for worthy causes since its inception in 2009. Your contribution in 2020 will help the Biker Belles continue its mission of charitable giving.

JOIN THE COMMUNITY

All—men and women, riders and non-riders—are welcome to join this gathering of mentorship and sharing.

Participants are asked to make a $65 contribution to join the festivities, 100 percent of which directly benefit three South Dakota-based charities that benefit women-related causes, Helping with Horsepower, the Strider Foundation and the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.

Don’t miss your opportunity to gather, ride and share stories during the 2019 Biker Belles event. Reserve your place now!

LIVE THE JOURNEY

The Biker Belles legacy began 12 years ago with a vision to create a women’s charity ride.

The idea later blossomed to become much bigger and broader with the involvement of a group of women who wanted to make a difference.

Hall of Famers Gloria Struck, Cris Sommer Simmons and Laura Klock, along with ride expert Meg McDonough, all wanted to elevate their support for women in motorcycling and encourage new riders into the sport and lifestyle they themselves knew and loved so much.

Motorcycling had been a vehicle for change in the lives of these women, so they felt called to improve the event to recognize those who paved the way, raise funds to support the preservation of this history and build up the lives of the next generation of young girls in the local community.

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip shared this vision, and so a symposium was added, the Comfort Zone and silent auction was created, and later Ambassador Diva Amy Skaling and Ride Safety Captain Vicky Roberts-Sanfelipo joined the celebration. In 2016 Kelly Yazdi brought the Wild Gypsy Tour women to the circle.

The Biker Belles community continues to grow and has earned the reputation of the home for women coming to Sturgis for the rally. What started out as a women’s ride every year has now expanded to a day-long event for everyone—women, men, riders, passenger riders, non riders—to celebrate and support women and their role in the sport of motorcycling.

The Biker Belles program continues to evolve as riders’ interests and passions continue to change.

Companies and organizations tout the 19% of female riders as the hope of the industry - as though they had anything to do with it! Who’s putting the spark in motorcycling?
