Yamaha hits Vic High Country with women’s only trail ride

Yamaha have continued their women only riding events for 2022, with Enduro legend Jess Gardiner hosting a fun off-road weekend in the Victorian High Country.

Gardiner’s Offroad Riding Institute teamed up with the Vic-based Haasle Free High
Country Tours to deliver exactly that – a hassle free weekend. Jess was joined by
talented trials champion Kristie McKinnon to offer tips and advice to 17 riders starting
from Nicholson and finishing at the iconic Dargo Pub.

Here the group was treated to an evening meal and a hearty breakfast before heading 170km back to Nicholson on day two.

“It was great to be able to help out this great bunch of women and helping to promote
women in motorcycling. Plus, I had a ball riding with them,” explains Jess. “The trail ride
was targeted to all women from a reasonable beginner level right up to advanced – with
the option to split into two groups to ensure a fun and flowing ride through the mountains
for all abilities,” she continues.

The Haasle Free support vehicle provided an awesome lunch spread in the bush on both
days while the WR250F and Ténéré 700 mounted lead and sweep riders ensured all
participants made it safely to Dargo and back.

“Look out for more Offroad Riding Institute women only trail riding events in 2023! Also
many thanks to Yamaha for their support – I had a good play on the Ténéré, amazing to ride – wishing it was still parked in my shed!” concludes Gardiner.
