We're Rockin' and a-Rollin'!

Holy smokes - Conga planning is really getting underway with a bang. Thus far, over 20 women from across Canada have responded to my posts about CCC on various forums: Women Who Ride, Vancouver Island Lady Riders, Canadian Riders and Canadian Motorcycle Roads!

A number of them are members of clubs who have volunteered to spread the word to their galpals, so by the time we hit the trail, we should have quite the contingent Conga'ing across the nation - how cool is that??? Even cooler, has been the generous response of women to volunteer to billet one or more riders along the way. What a way to show support!

Since planning is still in its' infant stage, we haven't yet determined a definite timeframe for the trip - I'm still compiling a list of those interested and their preferences and will hope to soon be able to set that timeframe as I know everyone will want to get their vacation days booked asap.

So, please keep watching here (and on the various forums) for updates. And by the way, if any of you women out there are interested in participating, please let us know:

The Ball, She is Rollin!

As of Oct 2008, the Ball is Rollin for planning the first ever Canuck Chicks Conga to take place Summer 2009. Posts have been made to Canadian gals on several women's motorcycling forums about the proposed trip and a number have indicated interest.

The impetus for this cross-Canada ride was borne out of the WWR Conga in Spring 2008 - see the Mini-History in the right-hand sidebar.

The Conga concept is sort of like a relay, but not quite. Riders meet up with each other along the way, some will join the group for long distances, perhaps all the way across, and some will ride across their Province or maybe even just across the city they live in. It is hoped that along the way, local women participants will help provide billets and also local knowledge of attractions and great rides.
