What’s Your Inspired Tour?
Description of Talk
In 1915, a mother-daughter duo, Avis and Effie Hotchkiss, were the first women to ride a motorcycle coast-to-coast. They traversed the country from New York City to San Francisco, for several reasons: to get out into the wide-open spaces of the United States, to prove that a woman could accomplish such a feat, and to inspire women to consider the sport of motorcycling.
In 2015, nearly a century later, Lisa rode a motorcycle following Avis and Effie’s route. She braved this adventure to fulfill her dream of riding cross-country, to honor Avis and Effie, and to inspire the next 100 years of women riders.
Lisa produced a documentary of her road trip that challenges viewers to dream big and act bigger. In this thought-provoking session, Lisa will share stories of her cross-country adventure, preview the documentary, and lead attendees through discovering their own ‘Inspired Tour’.
