The Women Riders World Relay (WRWR) U.S. Riders will be passing through Fort Stockton, Texas on their way to Laredo Texas, October 11.

The Global relay, the first of its kind, is a yearlong initiative to highlight and raise awareness about female motorcycle ridership across the world, and how the industry needs to change to support more women who are hitting the road.

The baton is handed off from female rider to female rider, women of all ages, also known as guardians, to complete a single route through the participating countries.

Some women are attempting to ride in as many countries as possible by flying in and renting motorcycles. By the time the baton reaches the US, it will have traveled through more than 52 countries with over 2000 different riders.

The US WRWR riders will be accepting the baton from Canadian riders then across the US to deliver the baton riders in Mexico. From there the baton will continue through Mexico, Central and South America before heading over to South Africa and ending the yearlong route in UAE.
