There is a global woman motorcycle group called Women Riders World Relay (WRWR). The aim of the relay is to WOW the industry into realizing the global market for women in Motorsports, and to ignite a global sisterhood of inspirational women to promote courage, adventure, unity, and passion for biking from all corners of the world. This is the largest worldwide motorbike relay in history. WRWR is created by woman for woman.
The very first WRWR (ever) started in Scotland in February 2019 and will be ending on January 2020 in the United Arab Emirates. The woman from nearly 100 countries have and will still be riding the WRWR, passing on the hand-carved Baton from one country Ambassador to another.
In January 2020 it will be South Africa’s turn to ride with the Baton and will be handed over to our Ambassador, Rialette van Niekerk on 02 January 2020 in Johannesburg. This is the starting point of the 10-day relay through South Africa.
We will overnight in Clarens, Dolphin Coast, Matatiele, Grahamstown, De Rust, Cape Town, Calvinia, Upington and some in Vryburg, Delareyville and Sannieshof, 1 night in each city. While in Upington, Rialette will be handing the Baton to the Namibian Ambassador. Overall, we will be riding an approximate of 5000 km.
At this stage, there are about 50 ladies (final numbers to be confirmed once registration closes in November) that will be riding the South African relay from start to finish. We are even blessed to have women riders from other countries joining us.
