The Woman’s International Motorcycle Association

The Woman’s International Motorcycle Association (WIMA) Was founded in the USA in 1950 by Louise Sherbyn, with WIMA in Europe established soon afterwards around 1956.

There are now many active divisions including: Great Britain, Holland, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, with a worldwide membership of 1500.

Each division has their own regional events and we all get together in a different country every year for an International Rally. Plans are being set for a double celebration in the year 2000 when WIMA will be 50 years old!!

WIMA GB has an active membership of approx. 450 members spread across the United Kingdom including overseas members too. The club produces a monthly newsletter informing members of events at home and abroad, as well as the current motorcycling legislation plans within Europe.

WIMA stands to support and promote motorcycling among women – from the sheer pleasure of leisure riding or pillioning, to touring, track racing, trials, green laning and speedway.
