April 20, 2022—Riveter Chapter of the AMCA is thrilled to announce that TORC Helmets has agreed to be the official helmet sponsor for the Chix on 66 ride June 10-25, 2022. As part of this sponsorship, TORC will provide Chix on 66 ride leaders with helmets from several different collections, all of which support the helmet communications systems that will be utilized on the ride. Additionally, TORC will provide raffle prizes for several Chix on 66 participants to be chosen in a random drawing prior to the ride.
Chix on 66 is a cross-country ride comprising 40 women that will follow the entirety of Route 66 from Chicago, Illinois, to Santa Monica, California, adhering to the original alignment to the extent possible. For every day of the two-week, 2,500-mile journey, the group will begin and end together, but each woman can make the journey into what she wants it to be. We will cover anywhere from 100 to 300 miles per day, with most days around 200 miles, allowing for an easy pace and ample time to stop for photos of the iconic points of interest along the Mother Road Riveter Chapter President Karan Andrea says, “We are very happy to welcome TORC Helmets as our official helmet sponsor. TORC is a big supporter of women riders, and their products speak to that. They blend form and function beautifully to make helmets, gloves, and accessories that appeal visually, set you apart, and allow you to express your own style, while still wearing serious gear. Our ride leaders will be sporting TORC helmets on Route 66, and each of us found the perfect helmet to reflect who we are.”
TORC Helmets, based in California., is a premier purveyor of motorcycle helmets, goggles, gloves, and other accessories. Lucky Foster, marketing manager for TORC Helmets, adds, “Motorcycling is the purest form of freedom no matter what race, gender, or color. Torc Helmets is proud to be the official helmet sponsor for Chix on 66 and hopes that their pioneering efforts inspire more women to get out and be adventurous. Explore the world, break barriers, be curious.”
