There’s been an on-going love affair between women and motorcycles ever since the first day one jumped on a bike more than 100 years ago. The ladies covet the freedom of the road just like the men do, but with their own style and panache.
Author/photographer/rider Christina Shook has published a beautiful book titled Chicks on Bikes. It contains 156 pages and 140 photos and features stories about more than 30 female riders from a wide range of different worlds. Essays describing different aspects of riding kick off each section of the book, with titles like Sisterhood, Style, Risk, Journey, Mechanica and Speed. With her accompanying photos and prose, Shook is able to tell us their stories by focusing on their perspectives as female motorcyclists from different stages in their lives and careers.
This collection of images and stories is a fascinating and intimate dive into the lifestyle of female motorcyclists. “It’s all about the young, the old, the beautiful and the ugly, the tough and the delicate, the wild the sensible, brave and gentle, the factory worker and the corporate leader – united in the spirit of motorcycling,” according to Shook.
