Sedona AZ (April 27, 2012) – Biker Babe Tours, a motorcycle touring company for women, has now added additional tours throughout the spring and summer 2012 riding season. The company, launched this year in Sedona, AZ provides full-service, three and five-day motorcycle specialty tours for small groups of women and markets to women riders from Arizona, Nevada, and California.

Package themes include: day-spa, shopping, gourmet food, National Park, spiritual sites, and many others.
Lead, CPR-and-AED-trained Tour Guide and CEO, Liz Casey says, “People are coming to Sedona in droves for vacations and spiritual or spa retreats anyway. It makes perfect sense for the company to try and connect with women riders who are coming here for other reasons. Sedona offers unparalleled experiences such as hiking among its world-famous red rock formations, spiritual services, such as yoga and personal empowerment retreats, world-renowned, gourmet restaurants, and first-rate spas. Adding these additional tours allows us to connect with and serve women motorcyclists from all over this great country who area also interested in Sedona’s other specialties.”
As a long-time, highly experienced guide, Ms. Casey’s dream has been to share, with other women, the freedom, joy, and excitement of motorcycling. Combining the emotional and spiritual aspects of women’s retreats with the excitement of touring is the company’s specialty. Recognizing that women ride differently than men, Casey set out to establish a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment where women could experience the benefits of the sport together.
Casey goes on to say: “The best part of this business is witnessing the new friendships that develop between women from all walks of life. Sure, most of us are middle-aged and married, but we come from all over and have all kinds of differing life paths, all kinds of different stories. But, with motorcycling, we have this one core activity in common, so women bikers have few social barriers to overcome. We are immediately united by our mutual passion and so supportive of one another. We all love this sport, deeply, and we all had to get over our fears and get through the learning curve to earn our place out there on our own machines; riding is such a remarkable bonding mechanism. I just love being able to create this space and energy with other women. I have the best job on the planet.”
