In 1979, Becky Brown placed an ad in her local newspaper. Soon after, eleven women took their first ride as a club through the scenis byways of the Maumee River. Since those first women in Toledo chose a name, Women in the Wind has expanded to more than 1000 members and spanned the globe across the U.S. and into Great Britain, Canada, and Australia. The organization now sports over 90 chapters, and while sometimes the chapter locations and member faces change, Women in the Wind keeps its spirit to promote a positive image of women motorcyclists.
The Jersey Girls Chapter of Women in the Wind was started in 1996. We carry over the values of our International parent and advance its mission locally. We are a true riding club. We have rides almost every weekend of the riding season and have Thursday evening rides from various locations in the state. Most of our rides are open to friends and non-members. We ride near and far; short and long runs; day and overnight trips. We visit historic sites; explore the beautiful places around us; or sometimes just go for a bite to eat. We support many local biker events and help to raise money for area charities.
