BGR is an inclusive celebration of all women who live to ride. We profile professional racers, riders and female MC clubs. We celebrate the triumphs and accomplishments of these women, while shining a light on their sisterhood. BGR is your source for new product launches & reviews, women’s rider fashion, and events across the nation, including Running The LAW Ladies Annual Weekend, and the Beautiful Bikers Celebration. As we celebrate 5 years, we now have readers all over the world. We invite you to join the Black Girls Ride Movement!
