Got a Biltwell Helmet? Get it Painted for Free at Biltwell's Customer Appreciation Station at Babes Ride Out 7 by @chicken_in_a_biscuit

Event Info, Artist Series, SponsorsAshmore Ellis

Biltwell has been supporting Babes Ride Out events for 7 years (our first believers!) and we are so grateful to have them participate year after year with their on site customer appreciation . This year they are bringing out Nicole aka @chicken_in_a_biscuit (who is also painting a Biltwell helmet for the Moto F.A.M raffle) to paint FREE flash on Friday & Sat evenings from 4-8PM. If you’ve got a Biltwell lid, make sure to bring it! Thinking you may be ready for a new lid? Click the link below as we go over when its time to replace your helmet to ensure you are actually being protected as much as possible.

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

Babes Ride Out 7  Biltwell Helmet Flash

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

Hochstadter's Slow & Low Rock & Rye is Coming to Babes Ride Out 7 x Central Coast

SponsorsAshmore Ellis

Babes Ride Out 7 is bringing together a new location with some familiar faces. We are excited to have Slow & Low rejoin us onsite for this year's Central Coast event in October!

Babes Ride Out

If you weren't with us in Narrowsburg for EC3, Slow & Low is an 84 proof, extra-dry, Rock & Rye - a rye whiskey-based bottled (Old Fashioned) cocktail. Their version is the perfect balance of aged straight rye whiskey, air-dried navel oranges from Florida, 100 percent raw honey from Western Pennsylvania, Angostura Bitters and a small dose of rock candy. Perfect for enjoying straight, as a cocktail or paired as a shot with an 805 beer.

Babes Ride Out

The Slow & Low crew will be pouring their liquid sunshine all weekend long at base camp and will be hosting a very special Rock & Rye whiskey tasting via a 1900’s steam locomotive on Friday evening! First come, first serve - so be sure to sign-up once you arrive! ! 

Babes Ride Out

Babes interested in learning more about Slow & Low can connect with the brand on their Instagram and Facebook channels. Stay tuned for more info and see you at Babes Ride Out 7 x Central Coast!





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!
