It is important to us that ALL women feel included. Connecting with strong women who are different than you has tremendous value. When you join the Fat Bottom Girlz, you will form friendships with women whom you may not have met otherwise, and we think that is a beautiful thing!

The Fat Bottom Girlz, Florida was started by Colleen “Ween” Nevitt in 2015 after she moved back to Jacksonville from Atlanta, Ga. Colleen enjoyed riding solo along the beautiful coastal roads of Florida. But she missed riding with a group of other passionate female motorcyclists. So, she decided to start the Fat Bottom Girlz, Jacksonville, FL.
“Riding is my Zen. The pure joy I get from riding cannot be explained in words. There is this feeling you get when you can help a new rider become more confident by helping them gain experience. Or, when you are the sweep on a ride and you see twenty female bikers in front of you, winding around a beautiful country road. There is nothing else quite like it.
When I began riding in the early 80’s, I didn’t have a mentor nor did I even know another female biker. So, I rode solo for twenty nine years. It wasn’t until 2009 that I decided to find other female riders and discovered a diverse group of women on Meetup. So I signed up for a ride from Atlanta to Madison, Ga. and that ride changed my life. It was so much fun! I met and made life-long friends.”
