In conjunction with Ali Scott of Together We Ride, the Sammy Miller Museum put on a Ladies’ Day on Saturday, July 14, when 35 lady riders turned up on some wonderful motorcycles for a great day out in the sunshine.
A raffle raised £107 for breast cancer research, and money is still being donated to the charity by visitors to the museum, which is keen on encouraging women riders who are new to motorcycling, returning to the pastime or just seeking a good day out.
Trade stands included The Gear Box from Poole, selling motorcycling clothing and accessories; Rich’s Tent, providing Pimm’s and chilled non-alcoholic orange juice, which went down a treat on such a hot day; IAM RoadSmart Advanced Rider Training Solent, with Anne Thomas and her team talking to those thinking about advanced riding; LadyBiker clothing from Felixstowe, Suffolk, who took along their tent, complete with changing area, for the visitors to try on new leathers and Rag-It/Bull-It clothing who were customising denim.
Sharon Luke from Bournemouth Kawasaki took along two road-legal bikes for lady licence-holders to try, and great music from the Rhapsody Choir from New Milton provided ideal accompaniment to the cream teas.
