Empowered women empower women. Thank you for being that kind of woman, we need you.
The IronLilies is a network of strong Independent Ladies in the motorcycling community. We want to share our love of two(or three) wheels with others who identify as a woman. Being a worldwide network, we need branch liaisons to do that on a local level. Our goal is to bring the IronLilies to all corners of the world and we are starting with individual states and countries. We want you to be a Liaison for your area and bring about more local city branches. Once a state has a branch future Liaisons can open smaller city branches. But we start at the state level.
communication or cooperation which facilitates a close working relationship between people or organizations.
To facilitate the growth of womxn who ride we have some helpful guidelines for success in your community.
-Be welcoming to all that identify as a womxn and want to get involved in motorcycling. There are no singling riders out, motorcycles are for all womxn. Drama free zone.
-Expect different skill sets. Some women have never ridden, some have for their entire lives. No judgments are where someone is on their journey. We want to encourage safe motorcycling, especially in group settings. You are not expected to teach anyone to ride, but encourage them wherever they are. It is also suggested you can direct riders to information like somewhere that does classes and your local laws/requirements on how to get a motorcycle endorsement. You will likely be asked at some point.
- Be an active part of the community. What does that actually mean? You should ride. 100 miles a year or 10,000 is irrelevant. Cruiser, sport bike, trike? Doesn't matter. But actual access to your own motorcycle and the ability to ride is part of the gig. We do want to see you out there. Plan meetups, attend some bike nights, plan a weekend ride. One gathering a month is requested, NOT required. We know that being extroverted may not be your thing, so if you need specific help on trying to set something up, reach back out to us. We would love to brainstorm ideas and get you going.
-Be social. Join our Facebook group, https://www.facebook.com/groups/ironlilies, it's helpful to discuss with other members. Start an instagram for your area. @IronLiliesState. IG seems to be more active for many of us. If you feel your state could benefit from a Facebook group thats cool too. It need to stay Iron Lilies state and rules need to be the same as the main group. We can forward that information as the time comes. Also the IronLilies moderation page needs to be invited with admin abilities. https://www.facebook.com/iron.lilies.16
-Acceptable posts: Please avoid controversial, political topics, or overly sexualized photos. IronLilies is not just a group of hot women on motorcycles, and we’re not trying to appeal in just that way. The goal is to be diverse, welcoming, and edgy.
-members photos and features. Be mindful of privacy.
-local bike events. Even if you're not going, we want to facilitate an active community.
-helpful motorcycling tips or conversation starters
-Please tag @theironlilies in any local event or meetup and new members post so we can reshare on our main page and stories.
-Major local events in your area, i.e. Bike rallys or hosting your own bike night, please make sure to email us details so we can share in our newsletter on a larger scale.
-New local members need to be directed to www.iron-lilies.com to officially register with the network. When we have a new member in your state we will share contact info for you to be able to reach out how you feel most comfortable. Email, IG, or FB, but not everyone uses each platform.
-Send us a photo of both Lilies Liaisons together with their bikes. This photo will be used as an announcement, so if it takes a few days to coordinate a good one we totally understand, this is your "marketing" for the branch and will be shared on all our pages. Also would love a little info about you two ladies, How you know each other, why you ride, favorite moto trip you've taken, etc. Whatever you're comfortable to share.
-When we have your photo and info you can set up your IronLiliesSTATE Instagram. Then email us back and we'll send you the contact information to the local Lilies we already have in your area.
-Then go for it! If you're planning a ride or meetup send it our way so we can share. And for the future tag us in any events you're going to(local ride, big rally, etc) and we'll make sure they are in our story.
