Is it Time to Replace Your Helmet?! Probably!

Alright, now let’s get to know Nicole!

Babes Ride Out 7 x Biltwell

When I moved to San Francisco in 2003, I quickly decided the bus wasn’t for me, and I got a little 50cc Vespa scooter. It was awesome and I learned a lot about what not to do on a bike. Eventually, I wanted to go faster, get out of town and across the Golden Gate Bridge, so I bought a ’69 Honda Scrambler. I rode by myself for years because I didn’t know other people that rode. Some of my dude friends started riding and pushed me to go faster and explore more. Eventually I got a Harley and started doing rides to the desert and beyond. The first time I ever rode with women was BRO 2 in 2014 where I trailered my bike from The Sea Ranch to SF, picked up a gal I’d never met before and her bike, and unloaded in Venice and rode to JT by 10pm. It was so much to fathom going from no one to everyone literally overnight.

Now, I’m a certified CMSP instructor and teach all kinds of people how to ride. I live and work at one school in San Diego, and ride up to San Francisco every month to teach at another school there. I paint helmets and tanks in between. It feels like I’m living a double life at times, but I’m so invested in these two endeavors that it doesn’t feel like work at all.

Painting flowers, snakes and other animals on helmets is so exciting because it’s something you don’t see in the motorcycle world full of skulls and flames. Although that will always be classic iconography, there is room for new style. I love painting flowers on motorcycle gear because it’s in exact opposition of motorcycles themselves—hard, clanking, loud machinery. The sight of something so delicate associated with something so tough is one of my favorite juxtapositions. Snakes and animals are reflections of ourselves I’m pretty sure...they’re wild and free, like how we feel while riding. I’m not sure exactly why I love it. It’s instinctual rather than intellectual.

I hope to keep doing this forever...and well, paint snakes as murals more too. Painting big is my favorite way to paint, and snakes have endless possibilities. Being able to use painting as a way to bridge my love for art and motorcycles feels like the epitome of who I am. It’s a simple thing but it’s not a job you find next to a checked box when you’re a kid at the school career fair. It took me a long time to find out that this was it for me, and now that I’m doing it, I can’t believe I wasn’t doing it

Nicole is available for commissions! She can be reached at nicole@nicolearts.com

After the 4-8PM time slot , she will become part of the Makers Market and will do any brand of helmet with her flash for a small fee until 10PM

5 Simple Steps to Being More Eco-Friendly When on the Road

DIY TipsAshmore Ellis

As motorcyclist we tend to pull over multiple times for re-fuels, stretch our legs, bathroom breaks, snap some pics, and most importantly snack. Packing your own provisions instead of relying on a sketchy gas station is something that most of us already do but ECOSLO has some additional suggestions on lighter, reusable, and sustainable items you can add to your gear bag to reduce your carbon footprint Read on….

Bamboo utensils, TP and a camp mug = MUST

5 Eco-Friendly Switches for Motorcyclists

Reusable and biodegradable are your (and the Earth’s) best friend! There are plenty of alternatives to those single-use plastics and items that need to be trashed to help get you to your destination. Be sure to stop by the ECOSLO booth at the Santa Margarita BRO event to learn more about ways to lessen your carbon footprint as you traverse this beautiful place we call home.

Babes Ride Out is Partnering with the Environmental Center of San Luis Obispo

Event Info, Locals, SponsorsAshmore Ellis

ECOSLO is excited to take part in another powerful movement on the Central Coast and beyond! The Environmental Center of San Luis Obispo, known as ECOSLO, is a half-century old non-profit with a mission to educate, advocate, and act to protect and enhance the natural environment and human well-being of San Luis Obispo County. As the only Environmental Center in the County -- and the first, their small but mighty staff work all hours educating the public on local environmental issues, removing trash from our beautiful beaches, and motivating community members to think eco-consciously. Come October, ECOSLO will have hosted over 60 clean ups in 2019, extracting over 4,000 pounds of trash from entering our waterways, and protecting marine and terrestrial ecosystems. There’s no doubt that even the smallest changes in our habits as a human species can drastically change that number. 

Babes Ride Out 7 x ECOSLO

Along with our cleanups throughout SLO County, ECOSLO has an array of programs. Volunteer with us at one of the many SLO County Parks to take part in a Nature Project such as tree planting or picnic bench building. Or take a leisurely, educational hike with one of our volunteer docents throughout the City of SLO Open Space and learn about the local history, flora and fauna. ECOSLO is also one of the spear-headers when it comes to taking action in local advocacy initiatives as it concerns to land conservation, waste reduction and renewable energy.

Babes Ride Out 7 x ECOSLO

We’re proud to be representing and protecting San Luis Obispo County. It’s our home, and we hope you will treat it as your home when you are here as well. 

Babes Ride Out 7 x ECOSLO

There are many ways to be eco-conscious when venturing outdoors - even on motorcycle (stay tuned for our next blog update!), and that’s why ECOSLO was so excited to hear about Babes Ride Out exploring Santa Margarita and all that the Central Coast has to offer! There was an instant connection between the two organizations riding on the fact that they’re both led by fearless women - we knew it would be a great match. 

Chat with the ECOSLO Team at our booth on Friday and Saturday and learn about the magic of SLO County and the Central Coast, and purchase your very own Bamboo Utensil Kit to carry along for the ride!

I don't ride yet / I don't have my license / am a new rider / scared to come / coming solo / losing it cause I am a ball of nerves and I need you to walk me through this cause I am about to throw up!

Girrrrrrllll, we have ALL been there! Listen, this event started as 50 ladies not knowing each other and has turned into a global movement. Why? Cause it's such a laid back, fun, and welcoming community. We offer car passes to purchase along with your general admission to those who are not riders yet or are new to riding and unsure they feel ready to make the trek. On site, there will be activities for you to participate in that are moto related even if you never sat on a bike before (stay tuned for info on that!). If you want to connect to others who are coming, click HERE and it will take you to the official facebook event page for this particular event that serves as a forum to converse with others. If you are driving, the best way to be a hero is posting that you'd be happy to meet a group of riders and be their chase / haul supplies! No one is more grateful than a motorcyclist with a chase :)

Can my husband, boyfriend, son set up my stuff and leave?

No un-ticketed guests are allowed into the event space. If you can’t set it up yourself or are willing to learn by the time the event takes place, please leave your rig at home or rent one of the units on site.

What ticket and passes do I buy? Looks kinda confusing!

No problem! We can break this down easily for you :)

  • GENERAL ADMISSION - NON-REFUNDABLE- This IS a ticket to the event and every attendee must have one to enter the property.

  • CAR PARKING - NON-REFUNDABLE- This is NOT a ticket to the event. Each car or truck must purchase this parking pass for their 4-wheel vehicle to park on the property during the event. Make sure that you and all of your passengers have a GENERAL ADMISSION - NON-REFUNDABLE ticket to the event as these are not sold at the door.

  • CAR +TRAILER x TOY HAULER x RV PARKING (NO HOOKUPS) - NON-REFUNDABLE: This is NOT a ticket to the event. Towing anything, have a RV, toy hauler, trailer, renting one of the RVS on the property already? You need this pass as your towing set up, rig, or rented rig takes up considerable room on the property. Make sure that you and all of your passengers / trailer guests have a GENERAL ADMISSION - NON-REFUNDABLE ticket to the event as these are not sold at the door.

**There are no day passes or discount passes if you are not staying on the property. We have to pay for the space and amenities no matter if you stay there an hour or the full weekend**

Please email info@babesrideout.com if you have any questions. We do encourage you to ride your own moto to the event to save in costs but understand that is not always an option.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Bring everything you need to be comfortable camping under the stars! We will have a suggested packing list posting soon with tips and tricks on how to safely pack your moto.

Please do not bring: outside alcohol (this is a rule of the property) people who did not buy a ticket, boyfriends, husbands, animals, kids, signs/banners, eazy ups (sorry! it obstructs the natural beauty of the camp and it is far too windy), fireworks, items to vend, handouts like stickers, buttons, flyers as we end up spending hours picking up these items off the desert floor. Leave no trace :) Our security will be on patrol so please be kind when they ask you to put these items away or ask your uninvited "friend" to leave. The last thing we want to do is be difficult but we want EVERYONE to have fun, not just you :)

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We go off the pre printed guest list as printed tickets are not honored at the gate. Simply bring your ID.

What is the refund policy?

100% NO REFUNDS under no circumstance as this is a self-funded event.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

No. The name on the ticket MUST match your ID. You can buy a ticket for a friend but make sure the ticket is in their name or show up together so you can collect both and hand off to the other ticket(s) to your friend. No nicknames on tickets, we have 0 idea who “Full Throttle Frieda” is.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
