MORE ABOUT #TheMotoSocialHALIFAX
With our vision set on building community and building camaraderie, we've joined forces with our friends Kira McWilliams, Jodie McIsaac and Jenn Knocton to bring TheMotoSocial to Halifax, Nova Scotia. We could not be more stoked! Kira, Jodie and Jenn will be our local community hosts and will continue hosting #TheMotoSocialHALIFAX on a monthly basis throughout the season. We'll be kicking off the season with our first event on Wednesday May 29, 2019, so spread the word & come hang with us! EVERYONE IS WELCOME! BIKE OR NO BIKE! GOOD VIBES ONLY!
We're MORE ABOUT THE PEOPLE.
MOTORCYCLES ARE THE COMMON THREAD.
Our vision for #TheMotoSocialHALIFAX 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 and an event that helped people 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 Halifax.
Kira, Jodie & JenN
COMMUNITY HOSTS of #themotosociALHALIFAX
I was born in Lahr, Germany, on a Canadian Forces Base. As a military kid, I never lived in the same house for more than a few years at a time and I was homeschooled for most of my early years. I’m constantly looking for change and adventure. I bought my first motorcycle (a Honda Rebel 450) in 2015 and a few months later I rode solo from Halifax to New York and back for the first east coast edition of Babes Ride Out.
Meeting other women who ride has changed my life in a really profound way and I have found more inspiration and opportunities within the riding community than anywhere else. Having so many strong female role models in the motorcycle world continues to push me further and motivate me to help offer other women the same experience.
I’m having so much fun learning and growing as a rider, and I'm so excited to see #TheMotoSocial movement come to Halifax. I think it's going to be an amazing platform to help strengthen our bond as a local riding community.
I was born and raised in Newfoundland. By virtue of that, my true happiness is found outdoors. Professionally, I'm a Medical Oncology RN based in Halifax. My line of work reinforces one major theme; we’re here for a good time and not a long time.
Rightfully so, I’m a classic fun times enthusiast. A lover of travel, food, music, laughs and people. When my adventuring eventually landed me on the back of a bike some years ago, I knew immediately I wanted the front seat. I currently do my exploring on a 2009 Triumph Bonneville.
On and off the bike, I’m passionate about volunteering with activities that support and encourage women in riding. I love watching the community expand and grow and am very stoked to be a part of it. I believe there’s an unparalleled level of camaraderie forged when you get to ride with other people, and I want to help spread that energy.
Being on the back of bikes at a young age is still a vivid memory. One day, my road dusted uncle & his blacked out moto rolled in. The stories of the solo long haul from Vancouver Island to Nova Scotia changed me forever. All I could think is, someday that will be me.
6 years ago I bought my first bike and haven't looked back since. Off season, forever a good book on the go, making plans for travels and keeping an avid yoga practice. In season, I'm rarely off my Harley. No matter how far I travel, or how insane the switch backs those stateside mountain ranges have to offer, coming home to our little piece of coastal paradise will never get old.
During the day I hang my hat in a very rad little barbershop, which happens to be a shared space with a skateshop & cafe. The community that can be built around these spaces and my ever growing community of riders is a real drive to be joining this project.
