Start Your Own Branch
Have you been looking for other women to ride with in your community with no luck? The Litas is a collective of women who gather together around one common interest - motorcycles. We celebrate our individuality but come together as a community. This could be your opportunity to grow your local motorcycle community for women. Trust us, you're not the only one who would benefit greatly from taking this on.
You will need to put in some work, but we can tell you it will be well worth it. The life long friendships we have formed, and memories we have made from meeting other riders through The Litas has changed all of our lives. This is a chance for you to bring women together, and create a sense of community, and friendship. It's a safe place for experienced riders and new riders to feel comfortable and valued.
Now you're wondering, where do I start? First off, you must find two other women to start the branch with you. We suggest finding them through social media, local motorcycle shops, or local motorcycle events. As a leader of a women's motorcycle group, you need to be a solid rider yourself. This means you should be comfortable on your bike in canyons, with groups, on long trips, on technical roads, and leading a group. If you've found two other founders and are an experienced rider, then you can fill out the form below, and we will consider your application to start a branch. We are usually pretty quick to get back, so you won't have to wait long.
We aren't modeled after traditional motorcycle groups, so being a founder doesn't necessarily put you in a position of power, it's more of a "organizer" or "leadership" type role. If you're doing this for other reasons than to bring women together and have a kick ass time, you shouldn't do it.
What other commitments does it require? You must plan one women's only event per month. This is pretty easy, if you're organized. Things you can do include going for rides (long or short), having a maintenance class at a local motorcycle shop, weekend campouts, meet and greets at a local coffee shop, etc. This is the part where the three founders get to be creative! Ask the girls who are joining you what they think would be a fun meet up as well. You do have to run an instagram account. The reason for this, is so local gals can find your group and join you. It also helps build a presence for women in your motorcycle community.
Last but not least, as a leader of a branch, you must be willing to welcome with open arms all women, from all walks of life, and on all types of bikes. This is definitely the most important part of being a leader and having your own branch of The Litas. We are a fully inclusive group of women who are dedicated to brining each other up and never putting each other down.
