The fact that motorcycling is also a women’s deal could be seen at this year’s Petrolettes Festival at the legendary Schleizer Dreieck. The entire weekend was dedicated to “Womxn Only”. Organized by women for women. In 2019 still based near Berlin, the festival has now moved to the historic road circuit in Thuringia and could use there, among other things, the professional infrastructure for the Races.
Races? Yes of course! Woman against woman on the eighth mile was on the program. Live music? Yes for sure! No less than four bands featuring exclusively women heated up the girls in front of the stage. Funny games, test rides, workshops for wrenching, yoga and offroad, marketplace with helmets, clothes, boots, … and everywhere good-humored motorcycling women.
Well, many more women would have made their way to the Petrolettes Festival if the weather had cooperated. Blue sky, clouds, rain in constant change made parts of the program really difficult. After all, this festival is an outdoor event with party tents and camping.
But those who made their way despite the mixed forecasts were rewarded with mega fun and the good feeling of having done something good for themselves.
Have a look at the Petrolettes, maybe you want to join in? We will keep an eye on the club so that we don’t miss the next dates!
