#womensupportingwomen

My name is Micaela Wallace and I am the founder of Rebelle Moto. I have been riding for five years, and share the road with my custom Harley Nightster and am currently building a new bagger which will be on the ground in May. There are a few things I am passionate about; everything motorcycles, my family, and sharing my love for two wheels and the open road in hopes of inspiring other women. In 2018 I had the opportunity to tour Canada through my Rebelle Moto project meeting women who ride, and connecting with some of the country’s most influential women in the moto community. This year, I am taking my project International, searching for women who ride, and sharing their stories with the world. Harley Davidson Canada supports Rebelle Moto, providing me access to bikes in locations that would be otherwise impossible for me to explore. This incredible support has allowed me to reach an honest demographic of women who ride in Canada, and this continued support will allow me to do the same Internationally!

In addition, and through my desire to share how riding a motorcycle has changed lives, I have designed a program to recognize women in the moto communities across the countries in which I travel. The Rebelle Award is given to nominated women who ride in each of the cities where I host or attend an event. People are asked to nominate a woman in their community that has inspired them through riding a motorcycle by tagging #rebelleaward_(location) on social media along with their nomination, or submitting via rebellemoto.com. A unique panel of judges from each location chose the most inspiring story and present the woman with the Rebelle Award at each event. This is an excellent way to engage with women in the moto community, and really highlight my mission of honoring inspiring women who ride. In 2018, the Rebelle Awards received an incredible amount of support. Moto brands across Canada donated gear that was given to the award recipients, and Revolution Motorcycle Magazine featured an article on the project and the award winners. I am so looking forward to the opportunity to take this exciting energy International and recognize inspirational women who ride in other countries!

Outside of motorcycles, I share my life with my darling husband, and my dogs; Rocco, Bettie, Diablo and Stella.
