Girl Power is alive at Thunder Beach, Florida

Pensacola, Fla (November 11, 2018) — Hundreds of bikers rolled into Pensacola for the re-scheduled Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally. Now more and more often, those bikers are women. According to the Motorcycle Industry Council the number of women riding motorcycles doubled between 1998 and 2015.

Christina Billings is a stunt rider, she says she vowed to never get on a motorcycle because they were too dangerous. A friend pressured her to ride on the back of one and she instantly fell in love. Within a month she had her own bike and immediately started practicing stunts.

Now "Chrashtina," as she calls herself, has been stunting for 7 years, traveling the country doing shows. She's also inspiring more women and even little girls to get behind the handle bars. She performed this weekend at Harley Davidson of Pensacola during the Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally.

Thunder Beach is held in Panama City Beach every year, but this year a smaller version of the rally moved to Pensacola because of the devastation left behind from Hurricane Michael.

The rally will move back to Panama City Beach next year.
