The Reason Riders had quite an eventful week. On Thursday June 3rd, Our Sgt At Arms, Coppertop, posted a video on TikTok, expressing his willingness to act as a replacement dad for those in the LBGTQIA+ community who need a place to vent or are looking for advice through the email address HiDad@reasonriders.com.
What started as a heartfelt hand-held-out in unity and compassion, turned into hundreds of emails, a following growth of over 25,000 on TikTok, and over 100 on the Discord server, as well as an “all hands on deck” reaction to the immediate and immense growth of our organization. Involvement has exceeded beyond patched members of the association, however, with the willingness of Goober and Mama Bear, the wives of Myself and Coppertop, respectively, to assist in hearing these stories and offering their kind words and advice.
This rapid growth has been met with nothing but titillation from the group, especially Wrangler, a vagabond member behind enemy lines in Indiana who, while the AZ chapter was on a weekend ride, held the new Discord server down by actively engaging new members and maintaining conversations into early morning hours.
Following the viral video, chapter 1 set out on a ride for the second leg of the Ride for Liberty coast-to-coast relay transporting H1 – The Voting Rights act – across the country. At Speedy’s Truck Stop on I-40, we met with two riders from New Mexico and handed off the banner and documents for them to pass along all the way to Washington, D.C. Following the hand off, we enjoyed an overnight stay at a campsite a little over an hour away where we were able to discuss upcoming changes to our operations because of this viral step in our growth as a charitable organization.
A special congratulations goes out to Mama Bear, who was voted unanimously to become a full patched member of the Reason Riders.
Big ideas are being worked out! Visit us on Discord, send us an email, or visit us on any of our social media and we will update as we get everything sorted out.
