"Calling ALL BABES! It’s time to heat things up a bit at BRO East Coast. The Renegades of the Real Deal Revolution are coming in hot! This year at BRO East Coast in glorious Narrowsburg, New York, things are gonna get REAL!
Born of the desire to empower babes to get tools in their hands, the non-profit 501c3 Real Deal Revolution, is here to “Revolutionize the perception of skilled trades. . . . and women’s roles in them.” These Renegades are made up of a team of women that fabricate, forge, wrench, ride, wheel, and weld. And they’re looking for recruits.
They’re bringing their skills, talent and tools to BRO East and will be setting up shop to offer basic training custom paint, welding, moto talk and more. Their ‘pop-up’ shops at past BRO events have been in huge demand with lines out the doors. Clearly you don’t want to miss the Renegades in action. And remember, no previous experience required. Just a desire to work and learn.
RDR’s main goal is to get babes on a level where they feel comfortable maintaining and upgrading their own bikes. Through experience they’ve discovered that exposing these babes lifts the veil of intimidation, inspires confidence and pride in their accomplishments. They teach babes that it’s ok to get their hands dirty and that knowing how to use tools is sexy! Taking it one step further they want to encourage all babes to take a chance, enter the Real Deal Bike Show at BRO and share their stories of victory, share their style, share their progress.
Founder Jessi Combs says it best, “We simply want to encourage and support women, because we truly believe that self empowerment comes from the ability to handle anything on your own, in any situation, no matter where you are. Our team lives and breathes that freedom daily and enjoys sharing how fulfilling that awesomeness really is. The vibe at BRO over the last few years gave a massive impression of what is really happening; it’s way more than just a ladies moto campout, it’s a revolution. We found ourselves compelled to be a part something so tangible and so on the forefront of morphing the way us women roll.
Check out the Renegades website at www.realdealrevolution.org for Real Deal Revolution merchandise, instructional workshoppe schedules, blog posts on Real Deal women, and to follow their journeys of inspiring more women to work creatively in the shop and play hard in life.
We look forward to sharing their skills with you again! Make sure to stop by their booth onsite, sign up for a workshoppe, pick up some tools, and add a new skill or two to your repertoire of awesomeness. Donations will also help fund future workshoppes and grow this revolution."
