Television travel expert and award-winning author Tamela Rich based her TEDx Talk, “Chance Encounters can Change Your Life” on her experiences as a traveler.

She founded and runs the Mountain & Music Motorcycle Tour Series, writes a bi-monthly column for "On the Level" BMW magazine, and contributes feature articles to "BMW Owners News."

"Hit the Road: A Woman's Guide to Solo Motorcycle Touring" helps women get the most of their solo vacations by planning around their “Traveler Type” and shedding their fears. The book addresses safety head-on, including how to deal with the travel dangers that women fear most.

"Live Full Throttle: Life Lessons From Friends Who Faced Cancer" draws on the stories she heard from cancer survivors who re-examined b

Hit The Road: A Woman’s Guide To Solo Motorcycle Touring

I wrote Hit The Road, A Woman’s Guide To Solo Motorcycle Touring to help readers experience the joy that a solo road trip gives me. It includes practical tips that anyone can use—whether traveling alone or with others, and regardless of sex.


Solo-wanderlust or solo-curious?

Group riding is great, and so is solo! Yet, my research shows that two-thirds of women riders have limited or no experience tra

“Regardless of whether a relationship brings us joy or sorrow, each relationship gives us the opportunity to grow stronger, nobler, and more compassionate with ourselves and others.”
Tamela Rich

“One of the top reasons women don’t want to travel solo is the prospect of eating alone in public.
Take heart: no one cares, and if they do, why do you care what they think? You’ll never see those people again.
Some of the most memorable meals of my travels have been in the company of strangers—often locals, including waitresses.”
Tamela Rich, Hit The Road: A Woman's Guide to Solo Motorcycle Touring

“When someone asks, "What do you do?” don't start with your occupation or family status. Instead, tell them about the "real you" with a spin.
You might say, "Back home I'm run a coffee shop, but on this trip, I'm getting in touch with the part of me who wished she'd studied archeology.”
Tamela Rich, Hit The Road: A Woman's Guide to Solo Motorcycle Touring

“Love the creatures for the sake of God and not for themselves. You will never become angry or impatient if you love them for the sake of God. Humanity is not perfect. There are imperfections in every human being, and you will always become unhappy if you look toward the people themselves. But if you look toward God, you will love them and be kind to them, for the world of God is the world of perfection and complete mercy. Therefore, do not look at the shortcomings of anybody; see with the sight of forgiveness. The imperfect eye beholds imperfections. The eye that covers faults looks toward the Creator of souls. He created them, trains and provides for them, endows them with capacity and life, sight and hearing; therefore, they are the signs of His grandeur. You must love and be kind to everybody, care for the poor, protect the weak, heal the sick, teach and educate the ignorant.”
Abdu'l-Baha

“We had a little slave boy whom we had hired from some one, there in Hannibal. He was from the Eastern Shore of Maryland, and had been brought away from his family and his friends, half way across the American continent, and sold. He was a cheery spirit, innocent and gentle, and the noisiest creature that ever was, perhaps. All day long he was singing, whistling, yelling, whooping, laughing - it was maddening, devastating, unendurable. At last, one day, I lost all my temper, and went raging to my mother, and said Sandy had been singing for an hour without a single break, and I couldn't stand it, and wouldn't she please shut him up.
The tears came into her eyes, and her lip trembled, and she said something like this - 'Poor thing, when he sings, it shows that he is not remembering, and that comforts me; but when he is still, I am afraid he is thinking, and I cannot bear it. He will never see his mother again; if he can sing, I must not hinder it, but be thankful for it. If you were older, you would understand me; then that friendless child's noise would make you glad.' It was a simple speech, and made up of small words, but it went home, and Sandy's noise was not a trouble to me any more.”
Mark Twain, The Autobiography of Mark Twain

“If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don't be afraid, and doors will open where you didn't know they were going to be.”
Joseph Campbell

“...but every person who does serious time with a keyboard is attempting to translate his version of the world into words so that he might be understood.”
Betsy Lerner, The Forest for the Trees

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye.”
Jim Henson
