3 Weeks to Ride Cross Country

July 28, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

At the beginning of the trip I thought it was going to take forever, 3 weeks to cross the United States? How would we ever get to San Fransico? Before we knew it we were riding into California all meeting up at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge. 

When Adeline and Augusta crossed into San Fransico by ferry from Oakland, they were so far behind their original schedule that members of the San Francisco Motorcycle Club, who had promised to meet them, had given up and gone for a ride, club historian Brian Holm told us. The 112 year old club made sure to rectify that greeting by providing an ultimate motorcycle escort over the bridge and through the streets of San Fransico as people cheered us on and waved.

It was such an emotional moment and even more so exciting for one rider in particular. Sarah SeCCRet Moreau, was on her 18th trek cross the country, giving her the opportunity to beat Bessie Springfield’s cross country riding record. Sarah was able to break this record on an Indian Motorcycle, the first brand of motorcycle her heroine Bessie rode and the brand the Van Buren Sister's Rode.
