Product Overview

A fabulous, museum quality collection of original period photography of women on motorcycles in the first half of the twentieth century across America--when riding a motorcycle was a dangerous and massive challenge no matter your sex. A stunning social, cultural, sartorial and geographical study of a group of emancipated women pioneers riding across and around America "before the freeway came to town." Cris Sommer Simmons, something of an American motorcycling pioneer herself, has been collecting photographs of women motorcyclists for nearly thirty years. A long time rider, often on a Harley-Davidson, she has scoured photo collections across the country and spent hundreds of hours researching their contents.
