Babes Ride Out 5

  October 27, 2017 – I wasn’t going to write about Babes Ride Out 5. I’ve blogged about the event before–even shot a segment for NBC–so what more could be said? Besides, BRO isn’t easily captured in words. Heck, I didn’t even take my camera (other than my iPhone) because I simply wanted to enjoy…

Bondorella’s Big Adventure

November 3rd, 2016 – Most of you out there have seen Pee Wee’s Big Adventure, right? If not, seriously, what are you waiting for?? Shockingly, my hubby falls into that latter category.

I explained the bike wasn’t “custom,” rather customized, but she said she wanted to demonstrate different levels of what a rider can do…

Babes Ride Out 3

JOSHUA TREE, CA – No matter what I write here, my description of the event is going to sound cliche. Seriously. Babes Ride Out was one of those events you simply had to experience. But… I’ll give it a try. First of all, there were no pillow fights. We didn’t stand around talking about how empowered we…
