LBC is a member of the international club, WIMA (Women's International Motorcycle Association) and of the Finnish motorist association SMOTO (Suomen Motoristit ry).

Why WIMA Finland?

Wima Finland offers for all the girls and women interested in motorcycling to do interesting things together, both in Finland and abroad. At the beginning of the year 2019 there were about 260 members in WIMA Finland from all around the country.

The members of the club can participate in all the events of the club (rallies, ride training, weekly rides, winter meetings  etc.) and also international WIMA meetings, are members of SMOTO and so get the benefits of the major mc-union of the country (some discounts, too), plus some discounts WIMA Finland has separately negotiated from mc-accessory shops etc.

You can find the SMOTO member benefits in SMOTO site. When utilizing the SMOTO benefit you need to show a club membership card with an SMOTO logo or SMOTO membership card. Different ship companies and other companies may have a booking reference for SMOTO benefit. They should be checked from the SMOTO site before booking.

What is LBC for?

The club members organize meetings around motorbikes. In winter time we meet in-doors, in summer time we have weekly rides and club rally, for example. The club members also participate rallies around Finland. Via LBC you will be able to contact motorcycling women all over Finland.

Where is WIMA Finland?

The club is national and it has no "base". The majority of the members do live in the biggest cities, especially in the capital area, but there is a lot of action in other parts of the country, too. Any district is free to come out with their own areal events as well - nowadays there are local weekly rides and winter meetings in Kemi, Oulu, Vaasa, Jyväskylä, Tampere, Kuopio, Kouvola, Lappeenranta and Helsinki. See the area contacts in the Contact page. Some information about the area actions you can read in the Regional events page.
