“Motorcyclists have never needed a mindfulness coach to tell us it’s all about the journey” (Henry Cole)
I’m Alison, a free-spirit riding a Harley since 2004. Originally from France, it was in 2015, when I moved to Malaysia, that I discovered the power of sisterhood and these special connections we develop on the road together. We have more in common than we think.
It was then during my off-road trips on a Royal Enfield in Ladakh, India, and then in Upper Mustang, Nepal, that I felt deeply touched by the women I met on the road. I wished I could spend more time with them. I was impressed by their skills and their mental resilience. We have so much to learn from women who are facing daily adversities, and yet they are too often ignored.
The obvious stroke my mind: If we were a group of women, we would travel differently…
Discover your WOMANHOOD powers
It was then that I imagined…!
Extending our women riders’ sisterhood bonds across borders. Taking fellow adventurous women riders to experience those magical encounters, leveraging on our native sisters’ expertise as tour guides, and contributing to the economic independence of fellow women, hence fostering gender responsible tourism.
W for Women, or the power of womanhood. Investing in women is investing in more sustainable, balanced, and inclusive economies.
W for Will, to encourage women to exercise their freewill by strengthening their self-confidence, challenging societal stereotypes and opening our sisters’ minds to all possibilities in front of them.
W for Wheels, because freedom starts within us, and motorcycling is a powerful vehicle to unleash the potential of women, both economically and emotionally.
W for Walter, my father who transmitted to me his passion for riding.
Did you know?
In most regions of the world, women make up the majority of the tourism workforce, but they tend to be concentrated in the lowest paid and lowest status jobs, while they also perform a large amount of unpaid work in family tourism businesses (UNWTO)
