Want to organize and participate in a multi-day motorcycle ride with a large group, but don’t know where to start? Chix on 66 organizer Karan Andrea shares how she made her dream of riding her vintage motorcycle on Route 66 go from a motorcycle tour with a friend to an epic all-women’s group ride.
30 women riding antique and modern motorcycles met up in Milwaukee at the Harley-Davidson Museum in June. From there, they rode from the starting point of Route 66 in Chicago, Illinois, for two hot-as-heck weeks traversing the old route all the way to California’s Santa Monica Pier. Check out the highlights from this amazing bucket-list ride.
More than a century ago, Effie and Avis Hotchkiss set out on their Harley-Davidson 11-F sidecar rig from Brooklyn, New York, to complete their 9,000 mile, two-month trek to San Francisco and back. The harrowing journey was a first for women, who weren’t even allowed to dress the way they wanted back then. WRN congratulates Effie’s family with her recent induction to the AMA Hall of Fame.
