MORE ABOUT #TheMotoSocialAUCKLAND
With our vision set on building community and building camaraderie, we've joined forces with our friends Courtney Herbert, Jay Reeve and Glenn Manchester to bring TheMotoSocial to Auckland, New Zealand. Together with Courtney, Jay and Glenn we kicked-off #TheMotoSocialAUCKLAND in January 2018 for the very first time and have been running our seasonal monthly events ever since. Auckland is the second city outside of Canada to host TheMotoSocial and we could not be more stoked. We're so excited to watch the community in Auckland come together and grow as we collaborate and host our monthly events in the city together. Come hang with us!
We're MORE ABOUT THE PEOPLE.
MOTORCYCLES ARE THE COMMON THREAD.
Our vision for #TheMotoSocialAUCKLAND is the same as all the other cities. "To build community and to build camaraderie." Since the beginning, we've worked hard to create an event that was more about the people than the bikes themselves. An event that was intentionally chill and welcoming and help people actually connect with one another. We wanted to create an event that made our big cities feel a bit smaller and got people excited about seeing one another. Having hosted TheMotoSocial in Toronto now since 2013, we're starting to see new friendships forming, as well as a real positive shift in the culture of our Toronto community. There's a real sense of unity being felt across the city and we want to create that environment in every major city around the world. That's really what we're all about and what we're hoping to cultivate in the city of Auckland.
COURTNEY, GLENN & JAY
COMMUNITY HOSTS of #themotosociALAUCKLAND
Riding is pretty much in the blood with my grandad, dad, brother, aunt and uncle (who owns a bike shop here in Auckland) and two cousins all who ride bikes. I spent a good chunk of my childhood hooning round the paddock on a little quad bike too, so I had no hope really. Naturally, a bike was on the bucket list, so when I came back from travelling I continued my streak of spontaneity, adventure and a touch of recklessness and opted to buy a bike instead of a car. Turns out winters in Auckland are pretty cold and wet. Didn't stop me though! When I'm not travelling about, I work as a freelance digital marketer and co-own a clothing label with my Mum and sister.
I grew up in a small beach town just a few hours south of Auckland. I started riding motorbikes as soon as my feet could touch the pegs. I've always really been a people person and when I grew up I became a primary school teacher. Later, I transitioned careers and became a Radio DJ and a VJ with MTV in New Zealand. Today, when I'm not surfing or riding my bikes, I look after a few different businesses I own and spend time with my wife Anna and our 3 year old twin boys - The Reeve Nuggets. I'm the luckiest guy in the world. Motorcycles and great people have consistently been a major part of my life. Connecting with rad new folks is what excites me most about bringing The Moto Social to Auckland.
Growing up, I would always find my neighbour in his garage working on old Ducati's. He was my parents age and spent hours working on his bikes. I was fascinated and would often go over, and watch him tinker away for hours. I didn't realize the impact and love for two-wheels those moments were birthing in me back then. I got my license to ride years before I ever got a bike. I knew that one day I would also be spending countless hours in the garage and getting ready to spend weeks on end touring. I've combined my love for motorbikes with my passion for photography and meeting people and I travel the globe working as a freelance cameraman/photographer and voice-over artist.
