WIM HISTORY OF MOTORCYCLING IN AFRICA

The Women in Motorcycling Working Group are planning a social media campaign focused on the History of Motorcycling in Africa, highlighting the role women have on the continent.

We are soliciting your assistance in collecting as much historical data; photos, articles, information, or personal stories about the history of motorcycling and especially motorcycling sports or leisure activities in your FMNs.

Topics of interest would include:

  1. History of how, where, and when Motorcycles came onto the scene in your country?
  2. How did clubs/groups and activities develop around this?
  3. History of Motorcycling Sport development specifically, linked with AMU/FIMA.
  4. Stories/pictures/newspapers or magazine cuttings, both old and new, of people or initiatives that involve motorcycling that have made an impact in various areas:

• Leisure
• Sport
• Admin
• Riders, officials, advocates, trainers, organisers, and anyone in governance.

Any key milestones.

Highlights of any women who have had an impact in motorcycling in either:

• Adventure
• Advocacy
• Sports
• Role models
• CSR

We would also like to select individuals to share their stories, focusing on what impact they have had with motorcycling or what motorcycling has had on them:

• Personally
• Socially
• Culturally
• Economically

Your recommendations or suggestions of people who would be suitable for this purpose would be welcome.

Kindly forward any information to my attention in soft copy, preferably via julie.matiba@gmail.com or the FIM Africa secretariat on fimafrica@fim-africa.com by the latest 31 July 2022.

Feel free to contact me should you have any queries, comments, or suggestions.
