What we're about
The Chrome Divas (http://chromedivas.com/) are a national, ladies-only motorcycle riding group, consisting of diverse female riders, passengers and even a few non-riding women who just love motorcycles and participating in charitable functions.
Our chapter is located in Southern California and covers the Los Angeles, Orange and Ventura counties. We are always open to adding new members and all women with all kinds of bikes are welcome. If you love being on or around motorcycles and have a desire for fun and excitement, please attend one of our Meetups. Our Meet and Greets take place each month, so join our Meetup.com page (https://www.meetup.com/Chrome-Divas-of-SoCal/) and come on out! Please also join our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/ChromeDivasSoCalGarage/) to connect with other women riders. (Note: registering on Meetup.com and Facebook does not make you a member of the So Cal Chrome Divas.)
Our rides vary from beginner to expert, from a quick lunch up the hill to an all-day ride up the Coast, to an overnighter in Paso to five days up North and everything in between.
