WIMA International

WIMA GB (Great Britain) is a National Division of WIMA International or WIMA World.

WIMA World links together members and associations from many countries around the world in the common interest of women in motorcycling. 

The aim of WIMA International is to improve and promote activities, advancement, goodwill and friendship amongst women motorcycle enthusiasts from around the world. WIMA aims at using the common interest of motorcycling to promote the well-being of women in general. 

If you want to try riding overseas, or you already enjoy travelling further afield on your bike, then you will want to hook up with our international rallies in Europe or beyond. Look out for details in Events.

Or you might be going on holiday or business to one of the many countries across the world where there are WIMA National Divisions.  If you go somewhere like Malaysia, Korea or Japan for example, set aside some time to meet the WIMA locals: you will be bowled over by their hospitality.  Check them out in advance to see if you should squeeze riding gear into your luggage!

Find friends to travel with, or even take an all-female tour led by experienced WIMA members, look out for details in Events. More fun, less bravado… There’s even more adventure on our Wilder Horizons page.

There are WIMA National Groups all over the world, and by being a member you have friendly faces to connect with on your global adventures.
