We are developing as we grow, a work in progress… with our reader’s support, each edition getting better, as we learn what you’d like to see, read and discuss… so expect some exciting upgrades to the website in the coming months.

Special thanks for this edition:

  • Deb and Damian MacKenzie, this edition would not have been possible without your support ♥♥
  • Jo Wharmby for the best hugs and pick-me-up, empowering support
  • Rhonda Pellow,  rock solid listener and advice
  • Elizabeth Lindner, who helped with much clarity and advice

Jay-D Editor in Chief

Following my dreams… this is it, to provide a quality publication for the women that ride, dream and face their everyday challenges under the Southern Cross. A small family run business, with big ideas and goals to give that target audience something unique and homegrown.

The website is a work in progress, so each edition will get better, each time, from the previous… my aim is to continually improve… but not look, or be the same, as anything else, currently available.

Gotta love the old classics…

Mary Knightsrider: Freelance Journalism and Photography

This woman is superhuman in everything she does. Madam Rider would not be as great without her and her behind the scenes support and encouragement. This edition, she’s written Birth of a Woman motorcyclist.

Thank you Mary for being you

Margie and Steve Paris:  Freelance Journalism and Photography 

Another great support, this time from the other side of the ditch, these guys have sent in their story Tiki touring the Wairarapa which shows off some pretty mean scenery. With New Zealand and Australia being in the shared travel bubble, what better time than to plan a ride throughout both countries.

Thank you and much appreciation to you both for your support and encouragement

Maatakiri Rapira: Māori Culture and Language Consultant 

I met Maatakiri through a Haka for Life  workshop in 2019 and have much respect for this beautiful wahine… she is a mum, a grandma, a teacher, a leader…  whānau is her life. She has a Master’s Degree from Te Wānanga o Raukawa and has been speaking and teaching te reo for many years… I’ve asked for her guidance with te reo and Māori culture. Ngā mihi maioha
