Famed North American Woman Motorcyclist, Becky Brown Contributes To Iron Trader News

Women in the Wind motorcycle club founder, Becky Brown has become a regular contributor to Iron Trader News, the digital successor to IronWorks Magazine.

The announcement was made by Iron Trader News Editor Marilyn Stemp. Both women are featured in  Biker Chicz of North America by Edward Winterhalder and in the pictorial history of American Motorcycle Girls by Cris Sommer Simmons. -- Motorcycle Books Shop

In the mid-1970s Becky Brown bought a motorcycle. In an effort to find other women riders, she placed an ad in the Toledo, OH newspaper asking interested women to join her for a ride and was surprised when a dozen showed up. This annual event eventually morphed into Women in the Wind, an international organization with over 100 chapters in four countries. WITW celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2014. Becky has been inducted into three motorcycle Halls of Fame and was the subject of a documentary for PBS called “She Lives To Ride.” She has toured all over the world on her motorcycle and presently has a 2000 Heritage Springer and a 2012 Heritage Classic.
“As Women in the Wind celebrates its 35th anniversary, there’s no one better than Becky to bring additional depth and perspective to ITN,” said Stemp. “Having Becky on board is appropriate, too, because she was a columnist in the early days of IronWorks Magazine. We’re delighted to have her back on the editorial team.”  Both women have certainly contributed to the growing popularity of motorcycle riding among women in the USA.
"I hope to shine a light on women who are making a difference as well as some of the men who have been consistently promoting our lifestyle," said Brown. "I have now been riding for 39 years but I feel that there is so much out there still to experience. Hopefully I can share some of those experiences with Iron Trader News readers.”
Watch for Becky’s input on Iron Trader News to buffer the original content currently available, including personality stories, road and gear tests, and input for riders of all interests and abilities. You don’t ride as long as Becky has without developing a host of valuable information and experience that every motorcycle rider can benefit from.
