Michelle Sataya Memorial Award

The Michelle Sataya Memorial Award honours a person who mentors new riders, encourages a safe and welcoming riding community and truly exemplifies the joy of motorcycle riding.

MichelleMichelle Sataya was an admirable leader in the riding community in the Sea to Sky Corridor. She often lead the Monday Night Gelato rides from Vancouver to Squamish, and mentored many riders to learn to love motorcycles. We lost Michelle in May 2015, but she continues to serve so many of her friends well with the knowledge, encouragement and kindness that she gave to so many.

We have decided to honour Michelle’s amazing contributions by recognizing others in the community.

All nominations will be reviewed by the Squamish Motorcycle Festival coordination committee, with consultation with Michelle’s family, and the recipient will receive notification by June 24, 2016 and be recognized at the awards ceremony on July 2 at 2:30 pm.
