WITW International, Inc.

History ...


In 1979, Becky Brown placed an ad in her local Toledo, Ohio newspaper looking for some ladies to ride with and it didn't take long for women to respond to that ad. Together 11 women took their first ride as a club through the scenic byways of the  Maumee River.   

Since those first women chose the name for their new club, Women in the Wind, it has expanded to more than 1200 members and spanned the globe across the U.S. into Great Britain, Canada, Portugal, Puerto Rico, and Australia.

The organization now sports over 100 chapters and while sometimes the chapter locations and member faces change, Women in the Wind International, Inc. keeps its spirit to promote a positive image of women motorcyclists.

Our Purpose ...


Women in the Wind (WITW) International, Inc. strives to:

  • Educate our members in motorcycle safety and maintenance,
  • Unite women motorcycling enthusiasts with friends of common interest, and
  • Promote a positive image to the public of women on motorcycles.
