WHAT IS MAD MOTO ADVENTURE FOR GIRLS?
MAD Moto Adventure For Girls is a motorcycle camp scheduled for the last weekend of June on Lake Sovinac. It’s idea is to gather women riders from Serbia, region and world.
Influenced by Babies ride out and similar gatherings, MAD’s organised in form of a camp, during whitch participants will have an opportunity to enjoy music gigs, rides, workshops, biker games and share the company of other women riders.
GOALS OF MAD MOTO ADVENTURE FOR GIRLS?
Goals of MAD Moto Adventure For Girls can be split in two cathegories:
- Goals aimed towards participants
- Goals aimed towards society
Participants of the camp will have the oportunity to spend time with same minded women, to share experiences,to learn something new about the sport they take part in and to, of course, enjoy the rides, the gathering and have fun.
MAD Moto Adventure For Girls also has a wider context – its goal is to supperss stereotypes created by displaying banalized image of woman motorcyclist which is often associated with an image of a half nude woman motorcyclist on a sportbike. On the other hand the idea behind the moto adventure whitch includes stay in nature and travel helps us to steer attention to the beauties all around us and the importance of preserving that same nature. After all, with the choice of the location organisers of MAD Moto Adventure For Girls want to emphasise the opportunity to use abandoned locations. Taking all of these into account MAD can be used as an example for youth (and not only youth) for realising that although there are many real obsticles for acheiving goals and dreams, a lot of them are set by ourselves.
MAD Moto Adventure For Girls, although it’s ment only for women, does not aim at any propagation of chauvinist attitudes towards men.
