A documentary that features eight colorful, entertaining and engaging women who are members of an all-female motorcycle club in Massachusetts known as the East Coast Biker Chicks (ECBC). Bound together by their independence, love of motorcycles and the open road, they enjoy the camaraderie and fellowship which the ECBC provides, and could be anyone s next door neighbor or relative.
Set in the Boston metropolitan area, Biker Chicz chronicles the daily lives and activities of a group of empowered women from all walks of life a social worker, a scientist, a stock broker, a chiropractor, and others who are in many ways average, everyday, typical American women. They personify the great American core values of freedom and individuality, exhibiting courage for pioneering their way of life.
Their life stories are compelling, intriguing, fascinating and sometimes inspirational. Some of the women share common traits, but most are different as night and day all live to ride and ride to live. Without their motorcycles they would not be who they are; it is what defines them and what sets them apart from their non-riding sisters, and all acknowledge that being a biker contributes to their self-esteem, focus and perseverance.
