The Women Who Ride (WWR) Conga Line is a fundraiser motorcycle group, in support of Breast Cancer research. This group, consisting mainly of woman, ride from all over American and Canada to Shell, Wyoming, which is the end meeting point of the Conga.
The Conga originated back in 2008 when a women nicknamed ‘ Flo ‘ bought a motorcycle from Ride Like a Pro in Hudson, Florida
She knew that after picking up her bike it would be a very long ride back. Flo decided to contacted her internet friends to ride along with her. And many escorted her some 6000 miles across the continent, dancing her safely home. Hence the name Conga like the dance. The Women Who Ride took Flo into their homes, fed her, rode with her, treated her like a queen.
2009 Flo’s husband also bought a bike from Ride Like a Pro and another full blown Conga was born bigger and better then the last.
Flo decided this amazing event should do some good and go towards a cause. And the Women Who Ride decided on raising money for Breast Cancer research because it directly affects all of them. So they dressed up in pink, decorated their bikes in pink and hit the road to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research. That year they managed to raise $12,000.
In 2010 it was decided to meet in the middle, Cheyenne, Wyoming. To their surprise more and more women and men riders participated. Together they surpassed their goal and raised $36,600 for the fight against breast cancer.
