If you don't know what WRWR is, you need to know that this unique event was founded by Hayley Bell and started in February 2019. A baton was passed from female riders to another team of ladies riding their own motorcycles, making sure that the baton travelled around the globe and united lady riders under the same goal: to show that we ride! More info you can find on the official website https://womenridersworldrelay.com/ and FB page
https://www.facebook.com/WRWR2019/ I'm so happy that I was part of this amazing relay, as I've managed to attend when the baton travelled from Royal Leamington Spa to Ace Cafe London on the 9th of March 2019.
Making of the baton which was in a case with a tracker fitted https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fW2pNT7kV1c&feature=youtu.be
A few shouts out in the media:
American motorcyclist: http://bit.ly/39AOeo7 which awarded Hayley Bell with the award of "Motorcyclist of the year"
The New York Times : https://nyti.ms/2uzmiSL and other publications
The celebration that will mark the finish(but yet the beginning of a new era for all female riders!) this entire amazing event will start tomorrow at MCN Motorcycle Show in London where there will be female riders guest speakers from all over the world.
