The 2016 cross-country Sisters’ Centennial Motorcycle Ride commemorates the 100th anniversary of Augusta and Adeline Van Buren’s courageous motorcycle ride across the United States.
The Ride will honor and celebrate female motorcycling heroines of the past and promote the growth of women motorcyclists and the motorcycling community.
Join the 2016 Sisters’ Centennial Motorcycle Ride and ride across the country, with a safe, organized, fun and encouraging group of women (and men). The ride will loosely follow the Van Buren sisters’ 1916 route, primarily following the Lincoln Highway across the United States from New York (departing July 3) to San Francisco (arriving July 24). Combining scenic routes and major metropolitan areas, the route will allow for great riding as well as promotion and visibility of female motorcycling role models.
The Women’s Coalition of Motorcyclists is honored to be one of two charities funded by the Ride’s efforts. Funds will be used for motorcycle train-the-trainer scholarships that will help grow the number of female instructors and coaches for road, dirt and track.
