Women who roar

Restaurant workers, store owners and hotel staff were quietly stirring their coffee, cleaning windows and preparing for lunch May 31, when all of sudden a gang of motorcycle riders did appear. They roared into town, complete with their own sag wagons and three photographers. The riders parked in front of the Park Bar, whipped off their helmets and lined up for ice cream and walking tour of Fairplay. Kelly Yazdi of Hawaii and Alaska, leader, explained that this was an all-women motorcycle tour, guided and organized by her organization Wild Gypsy Tour. The women who rode into Fairplay were from all over the country; they rode in Colorado and camped at Lake Morrison for the weekend. AnneMarie Kelbon (left) of Nashville said this is her first time in Colorado. When not riding motorcycle, she plays guitar and sings in a band called Sister Antics. Jennifer Williams (right) of Chicago said this was her first time in Fairplay, and she has a company called Wind and Throttle, which creates and sells women’s motorcycle gear.
