Women's Motorcycle Tours founder Alisa Clickenger has reached out to fellow woman motorcyclist Jenny Lefferts to make Mad Maps (https://www.madmaps.com/) the Official Map for the Suffragists Centennial Motorcycle Ride (SCMR2021). Mad Maps will be providing limited edition printed maps for the SCMR2021 as well as working with Women’s Motorcycle Tours to produce the road books given to riders to make it from Portland, Oregon to Arlington, Virginia. Mad Maps will also have a presence at the Women’s Motorcycle Festival & Conference at the end of the ride.
“I’ve been using Mad Maps for both my personal motorcycle trips as well as building women’s motorcycle tours for more than a decade now,” notes Clickenger. “Mad Maps are designed specifically for motorcyclists and highlight all the best roads and cool things to stop and see. I especially like how they offer just the right amount of information to make trip planning easy, yet not so much detail that I get overwhelmed with information and can’t make a decision about where to go or what roads I should take.”
Mad Maps was founded by Jenny Lefferts - she has been a motorcycle and back roads enthusiast for years although her passion began long before she was licensed to ride. Her dad's idea of a summer vacation was to load up the family in their 1972 VW bus and take to the road. Jenny moved to San Francisco in 1987 and purchased her first motorcycle. She was instantly hooked and began searching the Bay Area for the best scenic roads: the seed for MAD MAPS was planted.
