Women Ride Motorcycles Cross Country with TomTom
We’ve previously talked about the partnership between Mad Maps and TomTom. A team of women are riding their motorcycles across the country with a little help from their Mad Maps and TomTom RIDER GPS systems for their motorcycles.
The team of women will be riding from San Francisco to Athens, Georgia to attend the International Women & Motorcycling Conference from June 30 – July 3. The combination of Mad Maps and the TomTom RIDER will provide them with alternative scenic routes along the way.
“The specialized route information provided by MAD Maps, Inc. brings an added benefit to our customers,” says TomTom’s U.S. President, Jocelyn Vigreux. “With digital MAD Maps now loaded on our device, riders can simply click on the screen and find an entire scenic route planned for them, complete with motorcycle friendly services.”
The route will travel into “No Man’s Land” (coincidence?) in Nevada before continuing through cities like Grand Junction, Dodge City, Paducah, and Knoxville.
“MAD Maps partnership with Suzuki and TomTom is an obvious link for us,” says Jenny Lefferts. “We create and document scenic driving routes that are not often found on conventional maps. It’s amazing to discover,” says Lefferts, “just how many domestic road trips are logged in the United States and how much more efficient it will be to travel with the TomTom GPS devices.” Riding across country on a Suzuki Boulevard with a TomTom RIDER portable GPS navigation system is certain be one of the most thrilling experiences I’ve ever had.”
