Can you believe that Brooklyn kickoff was only 2 weeks ago? It seems like we've been on the road for years. I'm so glad I've gotten to know all of you and can't wait to spend another week. ✌️🇺🇸 #openroad #nature #crosscountry #coast2coast #makelifearide #sistersride #brooklyn #newyork #motorcycle #motorcycles #motorcyclists #ladybikers #womenwhoride #bikergirls #city
2016 is the 100th anniversary of Augusta and Adeline Van Buren’s courageous and unprecedented ride across the United States on motorcycles. The Sisters’ Centennial Motorcycle Ride July 3-23, 2016, will honor and celebrate our female motorcycling heroines of the past, as we promote the growth of women motorcyclists and the motorcycling community.
In 1916 the Van Buren Sisters were the first women to cross the continental United States, each on her own motorcycle. They became the first women to reach the 14,115 foot summit of Pikes Peak each on her own motorcycle. In 2002 the Sisters were inducted into the American Motorcyclists Association Hall of Fame and in 2003 they were inducted into the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.
