AMA Motorcycle Museum Hall of Fame | Linda Dugeau
AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame Linda Dugeau was a pioneering motorcyclist who founded the Motor Maids, the oldest motorcycling organization for women in North America, in 1940.
Dugeau was an avid rider most of her adult life. She worked as a motorcycle courier and had a reputation as one of the best female off-road riders in the 1950s.
The Motor Maids organization was created to unite women riders in promoting interest in motorcycling. The new organization grew rapidly and became highly visible when club members were asked to parade at various AMA national races in the 1940s.
Let’s take a moment to appreciate Linda Dugeau and everything she did to promote and support women riders. 👏
