Canberra Scootergals are go

By johnboy 8 August 2008 42

The following in from the Canberra Scootergals:

    With an increase of over six percent in motorcycle and scooter sales in the last six months due to petrol prices at an all time high, Canberra is becoming more populated with scooter riders who prefer the easy commute to work, along with ‘no hassle’ parking.

    Now there is a new all female scooter group beginning in Canberra, cheekily named ‘Scootergals’.

    Tess Ryan, Scootergals founder said, “We aim to encourage fresh, new riders who may feel intimidated by joining established clubs, and who want to begin their passion within a female oriented environment.

    “We wish to provide a community for more experienced riders, to welcome other women to the joys of scootering.

    “Our aim is to be fresh, feminist, feisty and fun, to enjoy a democratic community that enables scooters of all descriptions from 50cc up the chance to ride within Canberra and its surroundings.”

    The Scootergals vision is to hold regular rides and tours, encompassing things other than scootering, and with a ‘retro’ feel. We also wish to further educate female ‘Scootergals’, with training on better riding practice and safety skills, and regular maintenance and mechanic nights. All of this shall be in a fun, community atmosphere.

    The Scootergals first event details as follows

    Time 11:00am
    Date Sunday 7th September
    Location Debacle, 30 Lonsdale St, Braddon

    Come along for brunch, meet new people and head out for a ride.

    If you would like more information regarding Scootergals, you can contact them through their email address We also have a facebook page.

Tess promises a Hooters on Scooters charity calendar real soon now.

Oooh, an all female Rebels. Gotta love it.

Will they have their own compound in Queanbeyan?
And loyalty tests?

I would run their fluffy pink gauntlet.
