Hello, and welcome to Ladies Offroad Network!

Founded by Bower Media’s Charlene Bower, Ladies Offroad Network is dedicated to supporting ALL offroad ladies by guiding, educating, and motivating them to achieve their goals. Whether you are a driver, co-driver, racer, passenger, mother, business owner, worker, or hobbyist, you are welcome. We aim to meet the needs of every lady who loves offroad by providing a space to learn more about offroad sports, chat with other ladies from around the world, and share stories with a community that has the same passion. Plus, join us for events, activities, and giveaways!

Ladies Offroad Network Operates Within 4 Areas

ONLINE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY: We are online everyday between posting education, posting your story, updating the calendar with new events, or conversing with you.  There are multiple platforms so you can take advantage of the conversation the way you want to.  Our main hub is this website - we will always be directing you back to the information posted here.  We are also on all the social channels: Facebook, Facebook Group, Instagram and Pinterest.

EDUCATION ONLINE & HANDS-ON: Our main goal with Ladies Offroad Network is to provide you with the opportunity to learn the way you want to.  This may be via online How-To's and Videos until the time comes where we venture to your part of the country, or you are able to venture to one of our Hands-On Events.  We teach with a female in mind. Yes, we do learn differently and that is OK!

EVENTS: We L-O-V-E hosting events and have them all over the country!  Depending on the situation they can be extravagant events like our 4-day educational Convention, they can be a 5-hour Hands-On How-To Class, or they can be a simple Network'ing Social to meet others and plan your next trip.  We encourage you to meet other ladies that also love dirt under their nails! (That's the Networking part!)

SHOP: Who doesn't love to shop?  We do have our Bower Media Store that is the authorized retailer of Ladies Offroad Network products and services.

 

Guests are Always Welcome, but Membership Matters

Guests are welcome online and at 99% of our events.  We are NOT exclusive, we want every offroad lady to be part of this circle of education.  However, Membership does allow you to have a higher level of conversation and participate in a giveaways, VIP events and more.  Learn More HERE

"I'm Just Hosting the Party"

"I've cleaned my house, put snacks and games out, will clean up when everyone leaves and pay for everything that get's broken.  You are all invited to this rocking party!  Be sure to chat around the room, bring any snacks you would like to add to the table, meet some new friends and keep coming back for more!  This is all about YOU, I'm just hosting the party!"  I hope everyone will participate from hanging out in the Social Media Pages, submit and read stories on the website, and make plans to attend our events to meet new friends.
