AMA Chair To Address Mid-Atlantic Women’s Motorcycle Rally

June Event Includes AMA Road Captain Workshop

Maggie McNally-Bradshaw, chair of the American Motorcyclist Association board of directors, will give a presentation during the 26th Mid-Atlantic Women’s Motorcycle Rally.

The rally, which covers motorcycling in general but also serves to raise cancer awareness, is June 21-23 in Front Royal, Va.

McNally-Bradshaw will be part of a story-telling event during which women will discuss survivorship, triumph and success, with the twist of how motorcycling helped them.

“I am looking forward to sharing my story about the impact that motorcycling has had on my life,” McNally-Bradshaw said. “And I hope that through this event and others like it, more women are encouraged to take up motorcycling and bring others into the lifestyle we all share and love.”

Heather Wilson, AMA recreational riding manager, will conduct an AMA Road Captain Workshop on June 23 for AMA members.

Rally Vice President Cyndi Brandt said the event empowers and encourages women riders of all skill levels.

“The rally touches women in so many different ways,” Brandt said. “For some, it’s transformational, offers a place of female camaraderie and for many, a place to find the friendship and reinforcement needed to face the challenges of cancer head on.”
