Active & Adventurous - Motorcycle Mania

Motor Maids Inc. became a reality more than fifty-seven years ago. A young woman named Linda Dugeau conceived the idea that there might be a number of women who owned their own motorcycles and might be interested in becoming acquainted with one another. After an extensive search for names, she compiled a list of fifty-one names from which the Association Charter #509 was issued to the Motor Maids.

The founding premise of the Motor Maids was to unite women in promoting motorcycle interest. Whenever the Motor Maids get together for a parade or their National Convention, they will be seen in their colors – Royal Blue and Silver Gray – and the Motor Maid emblem in the form of a shield. The uniform consists of a royal blue overblouse, gray slack with white boots and tie. The Motor Maids is the nation’s oldest women’s riding club.

And ride they do – millions of miles over the years. These are ladies ranging in age from sixteen to eighty-five.

Travel Tip: Recommended Running Routes

Travel Tips - Fitness

Local Leads

When my travel is sedentary rather than active - museums, dining, driving, shopping, and shows instead of hiking, biking, kayaking, and swimming - my body rebels and my conscience squirms! It's worth my time to pull out my jogging gear and log a few miles.

But where to go?

Not all running routes are equal. And certainly not all front desk clerks know what you're looking for. What if you could check in with local runners and get their input?

Now, thanks to RunKeeper, you can do just that.

logoRunKeeper, a free iPhone app (also available with upgrades for only $19.99/year or on Android), is an incredible tool for tracking exercise, including GPS monitoring of routes, distance, time, pace, fitness reports, and more. Activities can be tracked by RunKeeper automatically (press "Start" and the GPS & clock will do the rest) or manually (for gym activities, for example). 

RunKeeper recently rolled out a new feature, which is great for travelers as well as locals.
