Motor Maids Events
Motor Maids is the oldest women’s motorcycling organization in North America. The group was established in 1940 by Linda Dugeau and Dot Robinson with 51 members. The group has grown to over 1200 members.
The objectives of the organization are to promote safe riding habits, meet new people, and travel across North America. Every July they travel to the annual convention, which is held in a different location each year. Almost every week or weekend there are meetings or events with this group whether it is a charity event or just a ride along.
My wife has attended all but one convention since 2006. I attended many of them with her. You can read about our travels to several conventions by following the links below.
