A Year-round Calendar of Events
We are not motorcycle brand specific, nor do we intend to speak for or represent any Masonic body. We simply share our passion for riding with all other Masons who ride, and raise money for charity while we do it. We are a social riding association, not a motorcycle club. Our name comes from certain aspects of our Fraternity, it is not intended to install fear or appear threatening in any way. We are not territorial and do not condone illegal activities by our members. We ask our members act in a way that will reflect well on our Association, our Fraternity and motorcycling in general. We have a badge comprised of a picture and the words, “Widows Sons”. We also wear a Square & Compass patch (as we are entitled to do as Masons) to denote our personal fraternal affiliation.
This is not our ‘colours’; it is simply a common custom among members of our Fraternity to wear this symbol. We strive to be friends and on good terms with ALL other associations, clubs and riders we share the road with. We realise that wearing a patch is a serious matter and wear them appropriately. We understand there are groups that have been around for many years and we respect that. We realise we are able to enjoy many of our riding freedoms thanks to the many groups and riders that have been ‘in the wind’ before us. Our badge allows other groups to know who we are and where we are from. We wear the name of our Chapter and the St Petroc’s Cross flag in Devon simply to identify where we are from not to claim any territory. In an effort to make sure all groups understand our purpose we have contacted the NCOM and the COC to make them aware of our existence and our purpose. Our members are also individually, members of BMF, MAG, HOG, AMA and other similar motorcycling associations. We come from all walks of life, including veterans of our Armed Forces.

Faro Motorcycle Concentration 2023
The city of Faro hosts one of the largest concentrations of motorbikes of the entire world. More than 20,000 motorcyclists gather for a three-day event in Vale das Almas, an area of around 400,000 square meters near Faro airport. The space also serves as a camping site where motorcyclists can stay overnight during the event.
The event features demonstrations of skills, talent contests, various performances and music concerts every night. At the end of the event, on Sunday morning, there is a parade in which all the motorcyclists strut their motorbikes through Faro. This is certainly an event that no real fan of motorcycles will want to miss.
The registration fee costs in the region of 45€ and entitles you to camp on site and to attend concerts every night, including an official t-shirt, medal, sticker, meals, and the chance to win a new bike or a week in Daytona.
A few of us are riding down through France, Spain and onto Faro for the 2023 event. If you would like to join us or ride with us then drop us an email: email@example.com to get further information. If you see us there, by all means come and say hi.
