MORE ABOUT #TheMotoSocialHAMILTON
With our vision set on building community and building camaraderie, we've joined forces with our friends Jeff Campagna & Tania LaCaria from Steeltown Garage and Allan Glanfield from Bellwether-X to bring TheMotoSocial to Hamilton. We could not be more stoked! Jeff, Tania and Allan will be our local community hosts and will continue hosting #TheMotoSocialHAMILTON on a monthly basis throughout the season.
We're MORE ABOUT THE PEOPLE.
MOTORCYCLES ARE THE COMMON THREAD.
Our vision for #TheMotoSocialHAMILTON 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 Hamilton.
TANIA, JEFF & ALLAN
COMMUNITY HOSTS of #themotosociALHAMILTON
Jeff didn't always love motorcycles. He didn't grow up in a family with motorcycles. He didn't have any friends with motorcycles. But still, at the age of 25, something drew him to the thrill of two wheels. After stints as a professional chef, music video director and screenwriter, Jeff (with his wife Tania) flew to Panama on a one-way ticket and spend the following decade living abroad, soaking up inspiration from foreign cultures and avoiding the Canadian winter. It was there, on the western coast of Panama, that Jeff picked up his first motorcycle (a Suzuki GN125). Soon, Jeff was buying more motorcycles, rebuilding and customizing them for private sale. After moving back to the GTA, Jeff and Tania launched Steeltown Garage Co. in Hamilton, a brand inspired by vintage fashion, great coffee and retro moto and garage culture.
Tania is a perfect example of how a non-rider can have an immense impact on the motorcycle community, both at home and abroad. She is living proof that you do not have to ride a motorcycle to love motorcycles or to be a part of the family. As co-founder and co-mastermind of Steeltown Garage Co. she has laid the groundwork for an emerging community of like-minded individuals who share a passion for motorcycle and garage lifestyle and built a brand that supports and nourishes positivity in a long-stigmatized culture. She has become a figurehead in the motorcycle community in downtown Hamilton without ever learning how to counter-steer, or power-shift, or drag a knee. University educated in both fine art and interior architecture, inspired by world travel, and with 13 years of experience owning and operating her own interior design firm, Tania devotes considerable time and energy to the motorcycle community and brings a fresh perspective to a long-standing pastime.
Allan has spent his entire life becoming a creative, jack-of-all-trades kind of guy through photography, video, audio, and design. Motorcycles and the culture around them have always been a source of inspiration for him. After spending some time in NYC as a menswear designer and co-founding Godspeed Co, Allan eventually returned to Canada and put down roots in the old steel town of Hamilton, Ontario. He now runs a marketing agency called Bellwether X and is so proud to be contributing to the new growth of Hamilton. The city of Hamilton craves community and Allan is so excited to bringing good people together.
