The Riveter Chapter of the Antique Motorcycle Club of America has released the logo for its 2024 Chix at the Crossroads ride through the Southeast. Following the success of their 2022 Chix on 66 event, which consisted of women riding vintage motorcycles from Milwaukee, WI, to Santa Monica, California, the Riveter Chapter of the AMCA has organized another women’s-only vintage motorcycle ride, this time journeying from Maggie Valley, North Carolina, to Memphis, Tennessee.
The logo, which captures the spirit and freedom of motorcycling in America, was created by Latricia Horstman, a woman rider who owns My Little Needles Tattoos in Plymouth, Michigan. Horstman has a passion for vintage machines and works on her own vintage bike while working as co-publisher of Throttle Gals Magazine along with Doni Muzzi. Horstman also designed the Chix on 66 logo for the 2022 event, and Muzzi made the 2022 T-shirts.
Chix at the Crossroads is an event for women who ride their own vintage motorcycle. It begins June 15, 2024, in Maggie Valley, North Carolina, at the famous Wheels Through Time Museum. Then the ride continues for 1,200 miles and 14 days through North Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, and Mississippi before ending in Memphis, Tennessee. The 2024 iteration will blend a passion for motorcycles with a passion for music while exploring classic Americana from the Appalachians to the Natchez Trace and the Blues Highway.
The event includes mechanical support during the ride, camaraderie with fellow riders, organized stops at local places or interest, a commemorative booklet, a swag package, route maps, and more. Participants must be members of the Riveter Chapter of the AMCA, and dues are $20 per year. The event is limited to 50 riders, and priority is given to motorcycles 35 years or older, although riders with newer bikes are welcome to apply.
