Flag of French WRWR Ripple - Image by Ivan Sache, 18 September 2019
The Women Riders World Relay (WRWR) is a worldwide motorcycle relay, founded by Hayley Bell, last August 2018, with the goal of encouraging women in motorsports. The WRWR is said to be THE largest worldwide motorbike relay in history.
The Women Riders World Relay itinerary encompasses nearly 100 countries and has reached and inspired over 15,000 women from all over the world since August 2018. As of today, nearly 200 women riders subscribed to actively participate in the relay and the number of women eager to take part in this historical motorbike relay increases daily.
The relay aims to raise awareness of women across all spheres of motorcycling. It officially started last 27th February 2019 and will continue across the world over the next 12 months via a hand-carved baton being passed from woman to woman, country to country.

Alternative relays are also organized at the national level, called Ripples. Women riders involved in the French WRWR Ripple use a French national flag charged in the middle with the emblem of WRWR.
