MOTORCYCLE WOMEN ROAD TRIP NEPAL

French-born Alison is a lifelong motorcycle rider who has done many motorcycle adventures, including annual road trips in Europe, solo and group tours in the US, Africa and Asia, with two life-changing adventures in the Himalayas of India and Nepal, which strongly influenced her venture.

In 2020 she decided to turn her passions into a mission: igniting women’s emancipation and self-empowerment through motorcycling.

And this is how the story of FreeW began.

Alison is currently accompanying all the tours she designed and will be the linking bridge with your local team.
