About The Founder

RASHMI TAMBE

Hello, I am Rashmi Tambe – a motorcyclist from Seattle, USA. I am the founder, editor, designer, admin, communications manager and social media strategist of the Global Women Who Ride Project – a media and communications platform for motorcyclists around the world.

Some other things about me:
1. My day job used to be working as a software engineer at a Redmond-based company. I love solving interesting problems, writing code, designing software and working with data. I am currently on a one year break in between jobs travelling around the world and working on Global Women Who Ride.

2.  I’ve been a motorcyclist for almost 9 years. I’ve owned and ridden many bikes during this time. I’ve ridden solo cross-country across North America, Europe and New Zealand. [Ride Reports]

3. I am a freelance writer and have been published in the AMA’s official magazine American Motorcyclist. I am also a product reviewer for American Motorcyclist. [Published Work]

4. I am a co-founder of Seattle’s first feminist makerspace – the Seattle Attic. We are a woman-centric workspace where Seattle-based geeks can get together to build things and learn from each other.

5. I am available for freelance writing engagements and to speak about motorcycle travel. You can reach me at admin@globalwomenwhoride.com.
