Effie Hotchkiss —  Pioneer for Women in Motorcycling Honored by AMA

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.
