San Antonio Chapter Of Ladies On Wheels History
The San Antonio Chapter of Ladies On Wheels Motorcycle Riding Club, also known as “L.O.W. Riders”, was co-founded on November 5, 2005 by Bree, aka “Breezy”, President 2005-2011, and Debra , aka “Street”, after meeting with the original Chapter of Ladies On Wheels in Austin, Texas.
Our goal was to continue the efforts of the Austin Chapter, by creating a Women’s Riding Club in San Antonio that would promote the passion of riding motorcycles in a club, where Women would feel comfortable, safe, and enjoy the camaraderie and friendship of fellow Women.
It was also our goal, as the San Antonio Chapter of Ladies On Wheels, to be involved in Volunteer Efforts and give back to our community. As our Chapter has grown over the last 9 years, we have been proudly involved in volunteer events such as the Susan Komen Race For The Cure, The Texas Department Of Highway Safety Adopt A Highway, Habitat For Humanity, and this year, we have proudly been volunteering at the South Texas AAU Junior Olympic Track and Field Trial Event, and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation’s “Ride For Kids”.
We have a diverse group of ladies, who are all a part of a riding group that feels like family…a sisterhood of Women Motorcycle Enthusiasts.
As we enter our 10th Anniversary as the San Antonio Chapter Of Ladies On Wheels, we look forward to the growth of our Women’s Motorcycle Family, and the many adventures, camaraderie, and laughter that this club brings to each one of us. We look forward to having you join us on a ride, and become part of our fantastic group of Ladies On Wheels.
