The Widows Sons is an International Association which is open to all Freemasons who enjoy motorcycling and have a desire to ride with and associate with their fraternal brothers.
We are the only Widows Sons association in the UK that is recognised by the United Grand Lodge of England.
Our goal is to:
- Introduce the pleasures of motorcycling to our Masonic Brothers.
- Raise Masonic Awareness in the world of motorcycling.
- Support our regular Masonic lodges, especially those with a motorcycle theme, through regular attendance and assisting with or attending lodge events.
While we wear identifying regalia, or patches, the Widows Sons are not a biker gang, MC or 1% Club. We are required to represent the fraternity in a positive light at all times. The Widows Sons serve to raise money for charitable causes, raise Masonic awareness while attending public motorcycling events and support our regular Lodges in whatever capacity we are able. Widows Sons chapters have helped to increase Masonic membership through our presence and visibility during public motorcycle events and rallies.
We have chapters throughout the United Kingdom and each Widows Sons chapter is encouraged to sponsor or participate in local charity runs or events. In all cases, we strive to present a positive image of Freemasonry and our Association to the public.
Today we have active chapters throughout the United Kingdom, many States in the USA, Canada and throughout Europe.
