What I've Learned as a Female Biker

Photo by David Minard
I found my home on the road.
Me and Blue

I've learned to respect my body and take up the space that is rightfully mine.
I've learned about myself, my fears, my dreams.
I've learned societal norms are not always right and definitely not for me.
I've learned independence and found my freedom.
I've learned of the discrimination of women riders by men, women and corporations.
I've learned I am not less of a woman because I ride
I feel like a woman because I ride.
