Sturgis Buffalo Chip® presents The 2012 Biker Belles™ – A Celebration of Real Women, Real Stories, and Real Fun

The Sturgis Buffalo Chip will once again recognize the passion, diversity and spirit of women in motorcycling with the Biker Belles celebration event on Wednesday, August 8th, 2012 during the 72nd Sturgis Rally.  Tickets for the Biker Belles celebration can be purchased now at

Created to raise funds for charities, the Biker Belles bring women, their families and friends together to celebrate the role they play in shaping the culture, sport, art and history of motorcycling.

Following the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame Induction Breakfast in the historic town of Deadwood, the Biker Belles event will kick off at 11am at the Lodge at Deadwood with registration, and events.   The Biker Belles celebration will continue by departing from the Lodge at Deadwood for a spectacular ride lead by Ride Captain, and famed Motor Maids member Meg McDonough and friends including renowned builder, land speed record holder, Laura Klock. The scenic ride from Deadwood will travel  to the Sturgis Buffalo Chip for a special Biker Belles shindig including food, beverage, shopping, fashion show, silent and live auction, and, entertainment by Iron Cowgirl Missy.  The evening’s festivities will be highlighted with a headline concert in the Sturgis Buffalo Chip amphitheater.

“The Biker Belles event was inspiring and an awesome opportunity to meet new friends and fellow enthusiasts.  Every age and every level of experience rider participated and it was all about getting to know each other,” says Laura Klock of Klock Werks Custom Cycles

Thanks to the Biker Belles sponsors Interstate Battery, Pepsi, Knology, Deadwood Chamber, and the Sturgis Buffalo Chip, 100% of the riders contributions will benefit two South Dakota Charities – Helping with Horsepower™ and Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.  Helping with Horsepower is a program that helps young women and girls who are at risk or are victims of abuse. The Sturgis Motorcycle Museum is a world-class motorcycle museum that will use the contributions to expand or enhance exhibits that feature women riders and their role in the history and culture of motorcycling.

Toni Woodruff, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s event coordinator for the Biker Belles, states, “We are very excited to build upon the success of Biker Belles celebration and we look forward to expanding our community of women riders and enthusiasts while contributing to South Dakota charities in the process.”
