About

Women Ride Their Own also offers a community Facebook page (public) as well as a closed Facebook group exclusive to women riders. You can find Women Ride Their Own on Facebook and Instagram at @womenridetheirown.

Women Ride Their Own is curated by @julienordskogandrews. In 2018 and 2020, she completed the biannual 10,000-mile Hoka Hey Motorcycle Challenge without the aid of GPS. She completed the off-road New Mexico Backcountry Discovery Route (NMBDR) in 2018 and the Colorado  Backcountry Discovery Route in 2021. Among various topics, Julie frequently posts about riding experiences and lessons learned. By sharing her story, Julie hopes to encourage women riders to challenge their limits. She actively participates in both long-distance and women’s riding communities whether posting on social media, publishing in print magazines, contributing to online forums, or participating in motorcycle events (such as rallies, trade shows, or organized rides).
