LONG BEACH, CA (October 3, 2016) — The 4th Annual Beautiful Bikers™ Conference, a celebration for women who love the ride, today announced Westside Motorcycle Academy as a partner,with co-owners Erika Willhite and Amanda Cunningham serving as speakers for the Beginning Bikers Panel. The female owned riding academy is celebrating its 11th year as a certified California Motorcyclist Safety Program training site. Willhite and Cunningham are life long riders and motorcycle enthusiasts who opened Westside Motorcycle Academy over a decade ago to empower and inspire all riders, especially women. “Women are the fastest-growing demographic in motorcycling, moving from the back of the bike to the front,” Willhite said. “And they do really well in the class. They pay attention. They follow direction. Men may feel this pressure to seem like they know everything. Not women.” We are excited to have these two dynamic women join us in our goal of increasing the ranks of women riders!
