Event description
One hundred years, one hundred women.

2016 is the 100th anniversary of Augusta and Adeline Van Buren’s courageous and unprecedented ride across the United States. In 1916 they were the first women to cross the continental United States, each on their own motorcycle. They became the first women to reach the 14,115 feet summit of Pikes Peak by motorcycle. In 2002 the sisters were inducted into the AMA's Motorcycle Hall of Fame and into the Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame in 2003.

The Sisters' Centennial Motorcycle Ride July 3-24, 2016, will honor and celebrate our female motorcycling heroines of the past, as we promote the growth of women motorcyclists and the motorcycling community.

We will also be having events all across the country as we make our way from Brooklyn to San Francisco. Starting with a huge kickoff party in Springfield, MA at the Springfield Museums on July 4th and a Grand Finale Party in San Francisco, CA at the Dainese Store ().
