Sister's Centennial Ride

July 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

July 03, 1916 Adeline and Augusta Van Buren (sisters) set out on a cross country motocycle (yes, that was how the were referred to back then)  to prove to the United States Army that women could in fact serve in the Military. They wanted to show that women could ride motocycles as messengers, allowing the men to stay on the front lines of the war.  This was all part of the national preparedness movement just before WWI.  Today, I will join Indian Motorcycle on the Sister's Centennial Ride ride to capture and document this one of a kind tribute to these amazing moto-enthusiats. Please follow along as I share with you images from this ride.
