Sara Mulvey

Sara Mulvey is a large format and ultra large format photographer, focusing in wet plate collodion photography. Not traditionally trained, she became interested in wet plate photography after inheriting family tintypes - they seemed to transcended time and space. She has carved her own path in wet plate ever since. The meticulous and meditative process of wet plate creates images that are in essence a transmutation of silver and light - that moment between the subject and photographer locked in time. That intimacy and connection is what Sara hopes to continue to capture through her personal works and portraiture. Her vision with Revelry Tintype is not only to share the historic process of wet plate photography with those around her but to create stunning images that will hopefully spark the magic in others that first drew her to this art form. Sara lives and works in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

"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."

FAQs

Make sure to check out our FAQ for all Babes Ride Out events by clicking HERE

What ticket do I need to purchase?! What are my driving options?

Every single lady must have GENERAL ADMISSION ticket to enter the property. If you are the driver of a car or truck you must also purchase a Car / Truck Parking Pass. We cannot accommodate RVS or Toyhaulers at this time but you can bring a motorcycle trailer of 10 ft or less behind your vehicle. Tickets to the event must be purchased in advance. If you end up having to drive, there will be car passes only available at the gate for purchase (cash only). We repeat: no tickets to the event will be sold at the gate, only parking passes to those who already have a general admission ticket.

I am only coming for 1 night, do I get a discount?

Sorry! All tickets are for the full weekend. 

Do I get a specific camping spot assigned to me?

No spots are pre-assigned but you are guaranteed a space. The camp area is first come, first serve. There is plenty of amazing spots for everyone. Car campers will be in a separate area. We have rented the entire site for you to enjoy! There are tons of trees and lean-to's on the property and we are right on the Delaware River.

What is up with food and water?

We will have a food truck on site and there is a camp store that is fully stocked! Feel free to bring your own coolers with food, water, booze etc. The WIFI doesn't work so bring cash (ATMS are in town but not on site). There are grocery stores / restaurants etc. in town less than half a mile away if you have special dietary needs. Gas stations are within 1 mile and a liquor store within walking distance. Google the area and see what is available.

I want to shoot, take video, do a social media takeover for this event for a brand, magazine, online editorial, etc Do I need permission? 

We’d love to hear more! Babes Ride Out is a private event and we do the best we can not to distract our guests so they can have the best time possible. If you want to shoot the event in any way for a media source, a brand, or other non-personal use, please email press@babesrideout.com for permission as no commercial photography or video of any kind is allowed unless approved by BRO. Images for your own use are 100% awesome and appreciated! No need to ask if it’s for yourself and/or personal social media, we only ask that you be respectful to the other attendees :) 

How do I connect with other ladies to ride out?

Click HERE and post away in our Babes Ride Out East Coast 4 Facebook event page.  It’s a great way to connect with ladies who are attending the event prior :)

What the heck do I bring?

No stress! We are putting together a super rad gear guide. Stay tuned as this will be emailed to you and posted on our social, website, etc. 

Am I part of the first 150 registered motorcyclists? When will I know? What if I don't show up?

We kindly ask anyone who is wondering to please have patience and refrain from emailing in asking as they will know when they arrive if they were part of the first 150 registered motorcyclists when sales opened. These bags are a gift from our sponsors to reward those who commit to coming  and arrive on their own motorcycle. If you do not show up, the bag goes to someone who does at the end of the event.

Can I bring my boyfriend or husband?

No, this is a ladies only event. Please check chopcult.com for all co/ed events or check out Sierra Stake Out or Blue Ridge Stake Out.

Can I bring my kids and pets?

Nope, the event is not kid / pet friendly :(

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Must be 21+ to attend and have valid ID to drink

What can't I bring to the event?

Weapons, signage, fireworks, pets, kids, a bad attitude, hand-outs for a brand or marketing materials of any kind. 

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

No ma'am! Just show up, you'll be on the list

What is the refund policy?

NO REFUNDS. Sorry, please do not ask. We have to pay for you whether you show up or not. All funds go back into the event so if you don't make it, know you made the event even better with your donation.

How do I transfer my ticket to someone else?

You can transfer your ticket to another guest but you are solely responsible for doing so. Log in to your Eventbrite and click on your tickets. You will see options to edit your ticket information. You must type in the person's first name, last name, and email address and click to save and send new confirmation. If your buddy doesn't get the confirmation, they won't be on the list so please follow up and ensure they got the transfer. Click HERE for step by step. 

****No transfers can be made after ticket sales have ended****

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

Your ticket must match your ID. If someone bought your ticket for you and did not put it in your name, you must show up together so the ticket holder can collect both tickets.

Babes Ride Out 6 | The Official Re-Cap

EventsAnya Violet

Babes Ride Out 6 far exceeded our expectations! The beautiful high desert graced us with flawless weather and clear skies all weekend. Well over 1,000 women descended on Joshua Tree and spent the weekend riding some of the best roads Southern California has to offer.

The festivities were jam packed and we want to thank every single person in attendance as well as all of the sponsors that helped to make this event possible!

As Riders began filling up the 40 acres of the Joshua Tree Lake Campground they were greeted in the event space with a Free Public welcome party. Kickstands down, Wine up! Enjoying some wine, meeting new friends and hearing about their journeys is what it’s all about.

We love to highlight the creative women in our community! There was so much talent in the Makers Market this year with chainstitch art by Rowdy Cowlick, DIY leather stamping by Pack Animal and custom stamped metal by Feral Silver. Attendees got to take home a custom hand-done piece or customize their own stuff thanks to these talented ladies. Jenn Hallett was hand painting flash on Biltwell helmets so that ladies can customize their lids.

Kickstands were down and the 805 Beer was flowing. There is nothing quite like a cold beer after a long ride. Thank you to 805 beer for bringing the taste of the central coast to Joshua Tree for Babes Ride Out 6!

The Moto F.A.M. raffle was poppin’ all weekend! Thanks to everyone that donated and participated we raised thousands of dollars to help riders who have sustained life changing injuries from motorcycle accidents.

Nothing brings people together quite like karaoke. Thursday night on the main stage was filled with the sounds of the greatest hits and a few Disney songs! Hahah Babes love Karaoke!

Friday morning after some delicious cold pressed juice, coffee and a breakfast bowl, riders grabbed a Biltwell route map from Mojave Desert Land Trust booth and hit the road. Rides ranging from 60-300 miles took you to Salvation Mountain, up to Big Bear, through the National Park, up to Idyllwild or in to Pioneertown. Every single rider came back with a story about their day.

The Real Deal work shop was putting tools in the hands of everyone that signed up. With workshops in welding, pin striping, and blacksmithing attendees could go home with a new skill or hobby to pursue. The Real Deal bike show was our most popular yet with over 40 motorcycles entered. We love seeing how riders customize their bikes and make them their own!

We at Babes Ride Out feel that it is so important to never take ourselves too seriously. That is why we loved the Girl on a Moto camp games on Friday night. Babes were lining up to go head to head in the sumo suit wresting ring. Who ever said that a motorcycle event can’t be like adult summer camp?

The ladies of Atwyld had their full collection on display at BRO6. Their mission is to get more women to ride in protective gear by designing a line that looks good, feels good and wears well on and off the bike. So many riders got to see that riding gear does not have to be ill-fitting or bright pink. Thank you Atwyld for all that you are doing to promote safety for the motorcycle industry.

Westside Moto Academy handed out hundreds of bright neon safety vests to riders throughout the weekend. They offered their expertise as motorcycle instructors to give pointers to new riders and talk technique with more experienced riders. Not to mention they showed us how its done in the Triumph Moto games by getting 1st place in the technical course.

Friday night we got to recognize some very important people up on stage. It all started with the Real Deal Bike show winners. These ladies had some very unique bikes and it was so fun to be able to recognize their efforts on stage with custom built trophies from the Real Deal workshop. Next, we invited all the ladies over the age of 60 years old to come up on stage. These are our mothers, grandmothers, aunts and friends and many of them have been riding since before we were born. The oldest rider there was 68 years young and WOW did she have a story to tell. It is so inspiring to see the new generation find joy and love in the motorcycle world but it is forever important to respect our elders and the wisdom they have gathered through the years. The diversity at Babes Ride Out events is un-paralleled.

With clear skies and perfect weather Friday and Saturday night were ideal for the Star Party and Astronomy Show in the Astronomy Arts theatre! Deep space telescopes, sky maps, and virtual reality tour to Mars were all part of this amazing experience brought to you by the Southern California Desert Video Astronomers. Joshua Tree is a dark sky community and, for many, they have never seen the night sky quite like that before.

DJ Ry Toast and La Flaca Lee kept the dance party going and the energy high throughout the night as the dance floor was packed! Some stayed up until the music stopped while others headed back to camp for some fireside hangs with new friends.

Babes Ride Out 6

Red Wing Heritage Womens hosted a “Mamas who ride” meet up on Saturday morning. The idea that when you become a mother you must forfeit yourself and your passions for the sake of your family has become antiquated. Children and family rise to the top but should not replace a woman’s identity. This meet-up was about getting together these inspiring Mama’s who exemplify this modern woman.

Saturday was another perfect day for riding. Aside from all of the great routes to ride, the town of Joshua Tree also has a farmers market as well as the HWY 62 art tours that many riders decided to experience on Saturday.

Thanks to Sena, Babes were able to demo Bluetooth devices throughout the weekend and see what it is like to ride connected. Their blind-folded obstacle course was harder than ever this year and required teams of two to complete the challenge bind-folded using only the guidance of their partner through their Bluetooth device. It was hilarious!

Rolling back to camp we went straight in to the Triumph Moto Games. This was our biggest and best year yet! There were over 70 riders participating and several hundred more there to spectate. The competition was fierce and it was amazing to see so much talent on two wheels. The technical course, the slow race and the barrel race all take certain skills and patience to complete. There were so many types of riders and so many types of bikes involved! Choppers, dualsports, adventure bikes, café racers, baggers… you name it. Nothing like doing a slalom course on a chopper. Thanks to everyone for participating and to Triumph Motorcycles for bringing everyone together.

Had a friend that could not make it to BRO6? Triumph had their mobile post office on site where you could send a post card and let them know they blew it!

As of Saturday night, the talented tattoo team counted about 150 tattoos that they had done throughout the weekend. Over 100 ladies are headed home with a permanent Babes Ride Out souvenir! Thank you to the talented artist that come out every year! We love you!

Saturday night everyone gathered near the main stage to see who would be taking home the amazing raffle prizes. Thank you to all the amazing artists and brands that contributed to the raffle this year! The raffle announcement were followed by one of our favorite awards of the weekend. The “Most Miles Ridden” Award! This goes to the Babe that took down the most miles to get to Babes Ride Out 6. The winner rode all the way from New Jersey and zig-zagged across the country totaling in over 5,000 miles! DAMN! Thank you for coming!

Another important recognition goes out to the mother and daughter duos that ride out to our events. This year we had over 20 which is more than ever before. What an awesome bonding experience to be able to ride out with your mom.

We had a very special guest join us on Saturday! Her name is Grace McKean. She has been riding motorcycles since 1946. In her 84 years she has seen so many changes in the world of motorcycles and Babes Ride Out 6 was her first time attending a ladies only motorcycle event. She came with photos and articles about her life on two wheels and we all walked away inspired by her. Thank you for coming Grace! See you next year!

No Babes Ride Out event is complete without some live tunes. This year Yachty By Nature had the crowd so pumped up! The sea of captains hats said it all. Thank you for playing the hits and keeping the crowd dancing! Babes LOVE Yacht Rock!

Smooth Sailing! Yachty by Nature

Before everyone hit the road home, they were able to stop by the Lucky Wheels Garage booth and check tire pressure and tighten bolts. Thanks to Lucky Wheels for providing tools for all the Babes!

babes ride out

Babes Ride Out 6 was such an amazing event! There were Babes from all walks of life and on all different types of motorcycles. Riders came from near and far to join together and connect over a love of two wheels. Thank you for coming to experience the beautiful high desert and all it has to offer. Thank you for being such an amazing community! See you next year!
