The Widows Sons are an international Masonic motorcycle association with members worldwide. The purpose of the Widows Sons is closely aligned with the principles of Freemasonry & the promotion of Freemasonry is just one benefit of the organisation. Significant charitable donations from the Widows Sons goes to help and provide much needed support to those who require assistance, this is one of the main tenets of the Freemasonry, Benevolence, and something every Widows Sons chapter practices. Membership is open to Master Masons of a recognised Grand Lodge and the Widows Sons aim to support their respective local and Grand Lodges wherever possible.
We provide an outlet for our fellow Freemasons who share the same love of motorcycles, like the freedom of the open road and enjoy the camaraderie experienced when men from all walks of life get together as Brothers.
Widows Sons can be recognised by various symbols and logos, the three most prevalent in the UK & around the world are detailed below:-
