Women’s Biking Clubs In India

Raise the throttle and hit the open road with these femme fatales

Don’t take Priyanka Chopra very seriously when she asks, “Why should boys have all the fun?” zipping around on a puny scooter in a TV commercial. Sure, riding a two-wheeler is exciting and women do have fun riding them. However, to enforce these low-powered, “safe” machines mocks our aspirations and challenges our limits.

Thankfully, India is not Saudi Arabia, where women driving a vehicle was recently legalised. With the motorcycling community getting larger each day, women are equal participants on the great Indian road show.

Have a passion for bikes and prefer to ride? These all-women biker clubs are fantastic to meet like-minded girls.

1. The Bikerni

India’s first female bikers association brings together women interested in touring and riding geared motorcycles.

The club has chapters across India and believes in creating history. In 2011, The Bikerni’s team of 10 bikers completed an expedition on the sacred road to Khardung La to set a new record.

Riders owning any motorcycle brand are welcome.

She’s graduated in history and has an unofficial PhD in Bandra-style jiving.
