A mediation, in person or by phone will happen, at the earliest convenience of all included parties. Social media is not the venue to act out your feelings.
Noncompliance with this will result in removal from the pack.

 

POSTING EVENTS

 

To allow all members to receive the information needed to make plans and help with attendance, all CLW events, rides, dinners and meetings are be posted on the following sites:

Social media sites containing all or partially all CLW members.
Canadian Lonewolves Facebook page for your Province or area.
Canadian Lonewolves website. www.canadianlonewolves.ca

*Last minute ride and coffee meets are excluded.
*Administrators of the sites have the right to delete or edit postings, if necessary.

 

RIDES


Anyone can put on a ride.
A Road Captain can be any member who wishes to take on that responsibility. This includes planning your route, current weather conditions, knowing your riders' experience levels, the smallest gas tank, along with any health conditions or allergies that can cause harm or death in picking a food/rest stop. Road Captains are responsible for providing a safe and enjoyable ride for everyone.
Riders, in turn are expected to make sure your Road Captain knows your level of experience, medical conditions, allergies or anything that affects your ride. Riders are expected to ride within the limits of their abilities and experience. No showing off. Riding while over the legal limit of alcohol or under the influence of narcotics endangers all riders. You will be removed as a member of the pack.
It is of the utmost importance that all CLW members and guests understand and respect each others' needs and abilities to help protect their brothers and sisters.

MEETING OF 1% CLUB MEMBERS

 

f you are unfamiliar with 1% clubs, please talk to your PL or APL. It is important that everyone understands how 1% clubs operate and the rules that they follow.
Meetings have been held between CLW and 1% Clubs to clarify the positive presence of the CLWs in the motorcycle world. Especially, due to new 1% clubs that have been moving into new areas. It has been clearly stated, by them, that we are in good standing with them.
Always be respectful to them, so that the CLW will receive respect in return. Also, for clarification, our female members are equally respected by the 1% clubs as our male members.
Our position to them are as follows.
We respect all 1% clubs.
We encourage CLW members to support public charity events that they host.
