Greatest Biker Chicz in Motorcycle Industry

In April 2010, The Biker Chicz Blog  was created to present news, photos, comments and stories from the women Harley riders who are featured in "Biker Chicz of North America", a new book by Edward Winterhalder & Wil De Clercq that will be published in late 2010.

The list of contributors is amazing!

I am pleased to be counted as one of the first 10 "Followers" of the new Biker Chicz - Google Blog and I can highly recommend it to all of my blog readers - especially women riders - because the list of contributors is a real who's who of women in the motorcycle world..
