Founded in 1940, Motor Maids has over 1200 members in Canada and the United States. Our district includes New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
Atlantic Canada Motor Maids, hold monthly meetings and rides. The rides range from a few hours to a few days. Key ingredients in our get togethers are safe riding, promoting a positive image of motorcycling and supporting each other. Benefits are making great friends and memories, shopping, exploring, laughing and eating pie. Guests are welcome to join our rides, but they need to be prepared to buy the pie.
