About the Event

Who is the Ride Day for?

Every female out there with a bike. All ages and all riding abilities.

 

Camping & Facilities

Camping will be available from Saturday afternoon. Riding will commence after riders briefing on Sunday morning at 8.30am.

MX Farm is a beautiful location with toilets, showers, a canteen for all your food needs on Sunday and is a great spot to camp.

Camping/Parking/Facility layout will be emailed to you ladies closer to the event.

As we have the entire park for this event, there is no opportunity for the boys in your life to ride at this one. So, come on your own, or get them to drop you off and then send them to Glen Echo Park for some boy time!

 

Entertainment

There will also be a ‘Happy Hour’ on Saturday evening, with a few free Young Henrys going to all ladies over 18 and a soft drink for the youngsters, because we can talk bikes over a beer too.

Plus lucky draw prizes! But you have to be socialising to win.

The man in your life* that usually helps out! We are providing tools, mechanics, and sweep riders so that we can have a super warm and fuzzy all girl environment for the weekend! If you are someone who has not gone riding without assistance from your Dad/Brother/Husband/Boyfriend/Mate/Neighbour before, and it worries you a little, this is your opportunity to see that it is more than do-able! And we’ll all be there to help you unload and set up if you need it!

*Dads/parents of juniors are not only required by law but are super welcome.

FAQs

If you don't mind being a little outside that comfort zone... then ABSOLUTLEY! We are catering to you... we have some super easy track options, heaps of Sweep Riders (they cruise around with high vis. vests and help) and Pied Pipers; Sweeps that will lead you out and make you feel safe. We also foster an environment where everyone helps everyone! 2018, 2019 and 2020 blew me away. I had high hopes for the vibe and holy dooley all the women were amazing and so supportive of one another.

We encourage you to do it on your own. Let the man in your life load you up and then sign out when you arrive, and ladies will be jumping at the chance to lend a hand with anything you need. It is actually the perfect way to break the ice and make friends with your camp neighbour.

However, if you absolutely will feel better about the whole thing if someone comes along with you and gets you unloaded and settled, we understand and won't kick him out.

First of all, hey Dad! And thanks for getting your girl involved in bikes. I have my Dad to thank for my wonderful career. But there will come a time when you will have to take a step back and trust she's got this. I can't let you ride, as it is a ladies only ride, and having Dad's cruising around kind of defeats the point.

Dads can reach their girls on foot at all times and sweeps are there to help if need be. 

If you still think that your daughter is just too young, or unprepared to ride without you, then maybe this event is not for you guys. You can ride with your daughter at every other trailride and track in Qld, so head to a few more of those, and then maybe next year, you both will be ready.

All shirts will be made to order, so you will have to make up your mind now if you want one. There will be no extra stock at the event. 

There is always the chance that it will rain but rain will not scare us away. Your safety is my priority and if any dangerous weather is forecast I will let you know what the plan of attack will be.

Absolutely.

If you don’t have a bike of your own or super amazing pals who are able to lend you theirs, then there are a few bike hire places located in Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Have a google search and check out the options.

If you would like to make friends or connect with ladies you’ve met at previous Jemma Wilson Events, and maybe even carpool, make sure you join and post on the ‘Legend Ladies of Jemma Wilson Events’ Facebook page. If you have questions that you think heaps of ladies might like to know the answer to, then ask on there as well. I can answer all those questions at once then!

This one is completely up to the Park and depends on the conditions closer to the event. I will let you in the week leading up to the event whether you will be allowed your own camp fire, and if so, you can purchase fire wood from the Young Fella - Josh - at MXfarm for $10 a crate.

No. This event is a Motorcycle Permitted Trailride and therefore we must follow the MA rule, which are no dogs (Guide Dogs accepted). There are also commonly baits laid in the area.

I’m sorry, no. This is a Motorcycling Australia permitted trailride and accordingly Quads cannot mix with two wheelers.

No refunds.

You can on-sell your ticket, and you don't need to tell me about it! The lady who purchased your spot just needs to give us your name upon entry. 

You MUST also forward on any event information to her, as I won't have her details. 

If you purchased a shirt and you want it, you must email: admin@jemmawilson.com.au with your address and transfer $10 postage before the event date. Otherwise we will assume you on sold your shirt too.

Absolutely! But you MUST SIGN ON and get a HIGH VIS vest!!

I will have photographers and videographers out there trying to capture all the moments, but they cannot be everywhere. So, if you have a camera and want to see what sick pics you can get, that is wonderful! And don’t forget to share them on the Legend Ladies of Jemma Wilson Events Facebook page.
