The Motorcycle SPRINGSHOW is pleased to present the 4th annual edition of ‘Women in Motorcycling’, an area in Hall #1 that showcases an inspiring group of ladies who will make you think about and look at female riders in a whole new light.
Make sure to visit the exhibit and chat with some ordinary women who have embraced the extraordinary world of riding in the wind, and find out how they have taken that love and incorporated it into their everyday lives…
I’ve been riding for over 50 years. My main love is long-distance solo-touring and last summer I rode 16,000 km, much of it as a participant in the historical Sisters’ Centennial Ride. I have volunteered in many capacities. I timed and scored most pavement races in Canada for over a decade, have marshalled at many tracks and occasionally ridden on them–having the dubious distinction of highsiding in front of John Surtees at the Christie Sprints. Currently I’m vice-president of the CMA, working on touring, environment and safety issues to better the perception of motorcyclists in Canada. I am a featured speaker at Americade and at the AMA Women in Motorcycling Conferences.

Not just one of the goalies for the Canadian Women’s National Sledge Hockey Team, Jessie is also a personal trainer, fitness coach and business owner/operator. Currently finishing her final semester for health wellness and fitness at Mohawk College, Jessie is one of the remarkable women featured at this year’s exhibit.
In her spare time Jessie cruises her three-wheeled motorcycle, totally equipped and ready for any weather. Last year she rode to and from the show – remember the snow on Sunday? Truly a gal with guts, we’re excited to have Jessie join us again this year the SPRINGSHOW!
