Alisa Clickenger Announces Publication of Book

Alisa Clickenger, founder of Women’s Motorcycle Tours and organizer of the Suffragists Centennial Motorcycle Ride, announced the publication of her first book.

Alisa Clickenger, founder of Women’s Motorcycle Tours and organizer of the Suffragists Centennial Motorcycle Ride (SCMR2020) announced the publication of her first book, Boost Your Confidence Through Motorcycling: A Woman’s Guide to Being Your Best Self On and Off the Bike.

“The evolution of this book has been a curious thing,” Clickenger said. “After providing so much freelance content for the industry in order to put gas in my tank and travel the world on two wheels, last year I scaled back and decided to begin producing original content for my own website. Throughout the Women’s Motorcycle Tours community, I kept hearing about how confidence was making or breaking women’s joyful experience on two wheels. Since motorcycling was what transformed me from a shy housewife into a world traveler, I decided to distill the many lessons from my own confidence journey into a set of practical, actionable tips which other women could benefit from.”

Boost Your Confidence Through Motorcycling contains ideas and inspiration for both experienced and inexperienced riders, and uses examples from Clickenger’s own personal journey learning to ride. Twenty years ago, Clickenger had a dream in which she was running for her life. In waking life, she was in the middle of a painful divorce. Within this dream, she found salvation in the form of a motorcycle and sped away from imminent danger. Never having ridden a motorcycle before, Clickenger awoke with the sensation of mastery over machine and wind in her hair. The metaphor of motorcycling saving her life has become increasingly clear to her, and in 2006, Clickenger quit her job as director of operations for an IT company and decided to re-invent herself as a moto-traveler and journalist.

“Women build confidence differently than men do and we get inspired about what’s possible for ourselves in a large way through other women. Many of us have grown up with specific societal conditioning that, for a variety of reasons, we often let get in the way of our showing up boldly in the world. Motorcycling is one place where we can let our hair down, so to speak, and be truly, authentically ourselves and let the layers of societal conditioning roll off of us and disappear in the wind,” Clickenger said.

Clickenger knows first-hand that motorcycling can be a physical, mental and spiritual journey for women, and hopes that her book not only helps female riders become more comfortable riding motorcycles but also draws many more women to the sport. 

Boost Your Confidence Through Motorcycling: A Woman’s Guide to Being Your Best Self On and Off the Bike is published under ISBN number 978-0-578-52707-9 and is available on Amazon.com inKindle ($4.99) and paperback ($14.99) formats.
