Women have been riding motorcycles for about as long as bikes have existed, but the motorcycle industry continues to focus on men.
In 1916, before paved roads, maps of the US, and women being allowed to wear pants, Augusta and Adeline rode their motorcycles across the continental US. They were the first women to accomplish this feat riding solo, facing arrests for wearing men’s clothing, crossing rugged mountain paths and unknown countrysides as they rode into the Wild West.
100 years later, we are a sisterhood of motorcycle enthusiasts who are choosing to follow in the footsteps of Augusta & Adeline Van Buren. If you love to ride or ride to live, we make gear for women first. It doesn’t matter what your destination is, as long as the journey is wild and free.
Augusta & Adeline is about creating community through women’s riding gear and we are excited to share what we’ve been building with you!
The goal in developing Augusta and Adeline is to create a new standard in women’s motorcycle gear and to cultivate a community around women who love motorcycles! We envision an inclusive community: whether you’re a seasoned rider, you hang on the back or you’re just into bikes, there’s a spot for you here!
