We are an organization working to unite all women motorcycle enthusiasts for recreation, education, mutual support, recognition and to promote a positive image of motorcycling.
Gold Country Riders is a chapter of the national organization 'Women on Wheels (WOW)'. This local Chapter was founded in 2000 to provide the greater Sacramento women's community a place to meet other women riders and grow their riding skills. Gold Country Riders strives to create an atmosphere that supports and encourages female riders of all ages and skill levels to ride and expand their skills, while providing opportunities to meet other female riders.
Gold Country Riders (GCR) has approximately 50+ active members from the greater Sacramento area, including members from Auburn, Colfax, Placerville, El Dorado Hills, Manteca, Stockton, Roseville, Napa and Folsom. Our group is very active. We represent a wide spectrum of ages, vocations, and interests. We are grandmothers, rider coaches, mothers, wives, athletes, track riders, and members of others groups. We all share a love for riding. Membership is about opportunities for new riding adventures and new riding buddies. We are a non-brand specific motorcycle group. All styles and brands of motorcycles are welcome.
Many of us have partners who we ride with and they are encouraged to become 'sponsor members'. Our sponsor members are welcomed to all of the regular Gold Country Rider activities.
Our purpose is to ride, and ride often, with a delightful measure of fellowship and good times. All are welcome.
You do not have to be a member to attend our meetings. You are welcome as a guest. Meetings are free (and so is Gold Country Riders!) and there's plenty of parking. We'd love to meet you and your bike.
