Babes Ride Out Zine Release Party and Gallery Show

Anya VioletComment

On Saturday February 20th, Babes Ride Out hosted its first ever Gallery Show and Zine release party sponsored by RVCA and Skullcandy. The party was held at HOWL event space in Long Beach. Howl is a recently renovated, early 1900’s building with a 2500 square foot gallery space and private courtyard. Bikes lined the streets outside the event and the alleyway was filled with the sound of exhaust. Over 600 people came through the door to view the gallery space which curated a selection of images that captured the 2015 Campout. Volume 1 of the Zine featured photography shot at Babes Ride Out 3 by Heidi Zumbrun, Lindsay Lohden, Jenny Linquist, Stephanie Pacheco, Genevieve Davis, Jennie Warren, Monica Semergiu, Nathalie Kossek, Cindy Dulong, Virginia Hall and Claire Sheprow. Proceeds from the gallery images, Zine sales and custom RVCA X Babes Ride Out denim jacket by Alex Matus all went to Moto F.A.M., a fundraising and awareness organization that supports fallen riders. Tunes by DJ Margeaux Agogo and DJ David Blowie kicked off the party followed by live performances by The Two Tens and The Black Tibetans! With a goal of raising funds for charity, showcasing the work of 12 talented photographers and re-living the good times had at B.R.O.3; the event was a great success! Babes Ride Out will continue to keep the good times, good friends and two-wheeled adventures flowing in 2016 with the first annual East Coast campout May 27th-30th, B.R.O. UK August 5-7th and Babes Ride Out 4 October 20th-23rd in Joshua Tree. Stay tuned for more details! Huge thank you to all of the contributing photographers and sponsors. Thank you to Corinne LanFranco for doing such an amazing job laying out the zine. Thanks to everyone that came out! Head over to the Gallery to see all the photos!
