Women have always been a part of the Sturgis Rally and the extended family of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip®. Whatever you call yourself, be it a motorcyclist, a curiosity seeker or someone just looking for a change of pace – join us for a day of real women, real stories and real fun at the 2nd annual Biker Belles ™ celebration, presented by the Legendary Buffalo Chip®.
Biker Belles™ was created to raise funds for two South Dakota Charities – Helping with Horsepower and Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame. Helping with Horsepower is a program that helps young women and girls who are at risk or are victims of abuse. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum is a world-class motorcycle museum that will use the contributions to expand or enhance exhibits that feature women riders and their role in the history and culture of motorcycling.
Following the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame Induction Breakfast in the historic town of Deadwood, the Biker Belles™ event will kick off at 11am at The Lodge at Deadwood with registration, and activities planned. The Biker Belles™ celebration will continue by departing from The Lodge at Deadwood for a spectacular ride lead by Ride Captain, and famed Motor Maids member, Meg McDonough and friends, including renowned builder, land speed record holder Laura Klock. The scenic ride from Deadwood will travel to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip for a special Biker Belle™ shindig including food, beverage, shopping, fashion show, silent and live auction along with entertainment by Iron Cowgirl Missy. The evening’s festivities will be highlighted with a headliner concert in the Sturgis Buffalo Chip amphitheater.
