PICKERINGTON, Ohio — Maggie McNally-Bradshaw, chair of the American Motorcyclist Association, will give a presentation during the 26th Mid-Atlantic Women’s Motorcycle Rally, scheduled for June 21-23 in Front Royal, Va.
McNally-Bradshaw will be part of a story-telling event during which women will discuss survivorship, triumph and success, with the twist of how motorcycling helped them.
“I am looking forward to sharing my story about the impact that motorcycling has had on my life,” McNally-Bradshaw said. “And I hope that through this event and others like it, more women are encouraged to take up motorcycling and bring others into the lifestyle we all share and love.”
Heather Wilson, AMA recreational riding manager, will conduct an AMA Road Captain Workshop on June 23 for AMA members only.
The AMA also will have a booth in the rally’s vendor area. And Wilson will participate in some of the group rides scheduled throughout the event.
Nancy Warren started the Mid-Atlantic Women’s Motorcycle Rally to create a community where other women who rode motorcycles could congregate and share their stories.
Rally Vice President Cyndi Brandt said the event empowers and encourages women riders of all skill levels. The event also raises money to support women facing breast cancer.
“The rally touches women is so many different ways, it is truly an amazing thing to see,” Brandt said. “For some, it’s transformational, offers a place of female camaraderie and for many, a place to find the friendship and reinforcement needed to face the challenges of cancer head on.
“We are so lucky to have had some many survivors participate and inspire us,” she continued. “I’ve met amazing women and created life long bonds with them.”
