Hello! Welcome to the Mountain Shadow Riders home page. Our Women On Wheels(R) Chapter was established in 1997. Our chapter is based in the Colorado Springs area and we have approximately 100 members from the Springs and surrounding cities/towns in Southern Colorado.
We have riders of all ages, backgrounds, experience levels and all kinds of bikes in our Chapter. You will see Cruisers, Touring bikes, Sport-bikes, Trikes, Spyders and Scooters in our parking lot. We don’t care what type of bike you ride – we are just glad that you ride! In fact, you don’t even have to own a bike to join our group – just be a “motorcycle enthusiast” – We have brand new riders and ladies with thousands of miles in the saddle and we are all here to have fun, help each other learn and become better riders every time we head out on the road.
Chapter meetings are held the 2nd Saturday of each month at the VILLAGE INN – 1430 Harrison Road, Colorado Springs. This location is close to I25 and Circle/Lake. It is right off the exit of I25 and South Circle/Lake Ave. – on the West side of I25 – on the service road by Car Toys. (See Map on MEETINGS page) Feel free to come early (8:00am) and enjoy breakfast and fellowship with fellow MSR members and get to know our awesome group of ladies and gents. Meetings start promptly at 9:00 am and if the weather is agreeable, we will ride as a group after the meeting. We are always ready to go on a two or three wheeled adventure!
Women On Wheels® was founded in California by an avid woman motorcyclist in 1982. Its purpose was, and still is, to unite all women motorcycle enthusiasts, whether they ride their own machine, are motorcycle passengers or enthusiasts, or future motorcyclists. WOW members are located throughout the United States, Canada, and several other countries. WOW has nearly 3000 members and is growing strong! WOWs Mission: To unite all women motorcycle enthusiasts for recreation, education, mutual support, recognition, and to promote a positive image of motorcycling.
