In 2017, we were on a group ride with some experienced riders; the ride started at a respectful pace until we hit the back roads. The guys love the twisty roads and took off! Understandably. And yes, there are gals who enjoy the spirited ride too. However, several gals were not at the same riding level and felt uncomfortable being pushed to ride faster than their guardian angel can fly.
Later several of us ladies got together for lunch, talked about the ride and asked ourselves, “what can we do to make sure we are riding within our group’s level, leaving no rider behind”. We discussed offering to be a mentor, helping to develop riding skills, offering tips from our own experiences.
"Warrior Angel Riders (WAR)" was born!
Warrior – is a woman whose strength has endured. Several of our gals are breast cancer survivors. Sadly, a few had to lay to rest their child, a spouse or a loved one. Something no one should ever have to experience alone. As women, we ALL fight our battles, support each other, struggle to survive and find the courage to live.
Angel – is a woman who looks after family, friends, co-workers, strangers. She is a loving and caring person who will make your day brighter just being there. She shows compassion; protecting and guiding, who is selfless.
Riders – as women riders, there is nothing more empowering than climbing onto your own bike and taking to the open road.
Our color choice to represent us: Purple and White.
Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.
White, an inherently positive color, is associated with purity, virginity, innocence, light, goodness, safety, brilliance, illumination, understanding, cleanliness, faith, beginnings, sterility, spirituality, possibility, humility, sincerity, protection, softness, and perfection.
We believe in pursuing to be the BEST as women, through every aspect of life.
