Hi my name is Rachel and I’m the Vice-chair for 2013, supporting Tracey in her role as Chair.
I passed my test in Mar 2009 and I’ve clocked up about 35k miles since – 27k on a 2003 CBR600F and 8k on a 2012 CRB600F which I took delivery of in May. I think it’s fair to say I’ve bitten by the bug. Many of these miles (in 2012) have been with the Lippy Ladies ranging from trips to Scotland and the Lakes to runs out exploring some of the roads we’re blessed with in Yorkshire and beyond.
We’ve had quite a few members join us as learners and I’ve really enjoyed seeing them pass their tests and continue their development on their big bikes. It’s a good feeling to be a part of that. I’m a great advocate of continued training and I recently passed my advanced test.
I can often be found leading the rides (for the West Yorkshire region in particular) which is something I wouldn’t have done a couple of years ago. My confidence is improving on and off the bike (although don’t ask me to park on gravel!), and Lippy Ladies MCC has been a big part of that.
If you’re looking for like minded ladies to go riding with, new friends, lots of laughs, a desire to gain weight – then you’re in the right place.
