How MAD Maps Can Navigate Your Next Journey
Over the years, MAD Maps has developed and published an extensive library of rides across America, including classics like Route 66 and interesting paths to nowhere like Key West.
They believe a well-used map is like a trusted friend; someone who is always there they are needed. As MAD Maps moves into the third decade of the 21st Century, their goal is to take this valuable palette of road trips and extend it to new horizons… and to make each day more memorable!
How It All Started
Jenny Lefferts, Founder of MAD Maps, has been a motorcycle and back roads enthusiast for years although her passion began long before she was licensed to ride. Her dad’s idea of a summer vacation was to load up the family in the ’72 VW bus and take to the road.
Jenny moved to San Francisco in 1987 and purchased her first motorcycle. She was instantly hooked and began searching the Bay Area for the best scenic roads: the seed for MAD Maps was planted.
A Map For Wherever You Want To Go
Over the decades, Jenny developed and published an extensive library of rides across America, including classics like Route 66 and interesting paths to nowhere like Key West, Florida (see Scenic Rides of Florida). Under titles like “Rides of a Lifetime”, “Get Out of Town”, “Scenic Road Trips” and more, Jenny helped define the passion for exploration within each of us.
A Trusted History
For some, reading a map is a prosaic art form from the past. For travelers, the ability to lay out a map, think through a route, drive it, and then remember the twists and turns are all part of the experience. A well-used map is like a trusted friend; someone who is there when you need them!
As MAD Maps moves into the third decade of the 21st Century, their goal is to improve on perfection, take this valuable palette of road trips and extend it to new horizons… and to live each day making Jenny proud!
