Who Is the Bikertress?
Johnny Weir’s Bikertress, a.k.a. “Atomic Kitten,” is a dedicated fan who came up with the idea of volunteering to ride anonymously in the AIDS/LifeCycle event on behalf of Johnny and his fans just one month ago. Her selfless example is an inspiration to all of us, and it is largely due to her tireless efforts—training, networking, promoting, and encouraging so many to get involved—that her idea became a reality.
Follow Her Journey!
You can follow Atomic Kitten’s progress throughout her 545-mile ride beginning Sunday, June 6, 2010, at 6.a.m. She’ll be tweeting and twicpic’ing along the way, so please follow her on Twitter here! Her tweets will also be posted on Facebook on the Ride for Life Fan Project page here.
Check Out What She’s Wearing!
As word of our project spread, we were so very fortunate to have some really wonderful people get involved to help outfit the Bikertress!
