WITW Chinook Outriders were featured at an open house presented by Torch Motorcycles as part of their “Handbuilt Festival” which took place from Sept 15-25, 2016. The company’s target market is women who wish to build their own bikes, and make them suitable to their specific size and needs. • The Handbuilt Motorcycle Festival 2016, in its 3rd year, took place again at Torch HQ’s in Calgary’s historic Tigerstedt block, 914 Centre Street North. This year’s event featured Calgary’s best summer builds, nightly street festivals, the Crash Helmet project — a collaboration between crash survivors and Calgary’s best tatooist, artists, pinstripers -and the launch of the Torch Moto games, races, and film events. • This year’s builds included projects from Emily Aalbers, Pascale Lafebvre, Elle West, Natasha Ruben, Brock Downey, Jake Kessell, and Jon Paskett’s new 2016 Isle of Man TT Classic build! • Chinook Outriders Lee and Trish provided information regarding the Women in the Wind organization as well as our own Chapter. A round table discussion on Women in Motorcycling was emceed by Outrider Gail. We discussed issues we have encountered on our journey, why we joined a women’s club vs. a mixed club, safety issues, and new riders' expectations - from them and of them, among other pertinent topics. • Many thanks to Red Bull and Steam Whistle Brewing and our own Tina B for keeping us hydrated, and Torch for giving us the opportunity to showcase our wonderful organization! • Trish C
