DENVER, Colo. – Women riders, take note: Lady Road Dog, aka DesignWraps Brands CEO Joan Krenning, is organizing the Steel Horse Sisterhood Summit for May 2014.
Billed as “the first all-women’s rider summit,” the three-day event is designed to broaden the skills, knowledge and experiences of women motorcycle riders from across the globe. Organizers say it is an opportunity to come together as a sisterhood; to be part of the largest directory of information for women riders and to raise money for charity groups Helping with Horsepower, Ride for Kids and Grace After Fire.
Bringing industry professionals, manufacturers and designers together, the summit provides a platform for women riders to have a voice; to dictate what they would like to see in future designs, to describe how they believe a ride should feel and to let women riders everywhere connect in a way that has never been done before.
Classes offered will include motorcycle maintenance, exercise and nutrition tips for riders, packing efficiently and effectively for road trips, rider skills training, personal safety, protection and self-defense while on a bike and solo on the road. Industry reps will be on hand to give advice on finding the right wheels, exhausts, seats, windshields and anything else related to making a motorcycle the safest and most comfortable to suit female riders and their riding styles.
Seminar presenters include:
- Laura Klock - VP, Klock Werks Kustom Cycles, co-founder, Helping With Horsepower, holder of AMA and SCTA National land speed records from the Bonneville Salt Flats
- Jessi Combs - All Girl Garage - FIA women's land-speed record holder

- Eldonna Lewis Fernandez - MSgt USAF retired, founder, PinkBikerChic, and author of Think Like A Negotiator

Social and entertainment opportunities include a Friday night Sisterhood Social meet 'n' greet with hors d'oeuvres, have your bike hand-washed by local firefighters, having personal caricatures drawn, the SHS spa and massage room, SHS yoga sessions and Summit Surprises upon check-in.
