About the WROAR Ride Organizing Committee

Behind The Scenes

Who organizes the WROAR ride?

Meet the riders behind WROAR! A brief introduction to the women of the 2014 WROAR Ride Organizing Committee...

Alexandra
Committee Chair

What do people call you?
Isis

Your ride:
1990 VTR 250 (Pinky, WROAR themed bike) & 2002 SV 650S

Years riding:
10

What is your dream bike?
I refuse to answer this on the grounds it may incriminate me to future Factories wanting to give me a free motorcycle

How would we recognize you?
I have been in different fields of this industry since the beginning. I started working motorcycle shows. I have worked in some of the big name bike shops (Cycle World, Brampton Cycle, Z1 Cycletech). I spent a few years working for various race teams in the marketing and sponsorship areas. I also use to write articles for 2Ride.ca enthusiast magazine. I have been working with WROAR for 9 years. You can also find me on GTAMotorcycle.com as a moderator. I have enjoyed all the ups and downs (well not so much the downs) this industry has to offer. I hope to branch out even further one day.

What do you do in your non-motorcycle life?
Currently I am a full time student at York working on my BA in psychology. Evenings and weekends I am not out on the bike I can be found working behind a bar as a veteran bartender. In the winter if I have time you can find me pretend snowboarding or trying to convince people to teach me how to hockey stop on skates.

What cartoon character to you most resemble?
Duh SAILOR MOON!

Random facts about you?
I have a huge weakness for gingerbread men... And when I was little I was determined to be the first professional female baseball player and I was going to do it in heels!

Reasons for joining WROAR?
Oh my! That is a very interesting story and you will just have to come find me to hear it.

3. What's your most memorable moment in motorcycling?
Riding through 318 curves of the Tail of the Dragon and Charhala Skyway, North Carolina.

4. What prompted you to join the WROAR Organizing Committee?
I joined because I feel very strongly that WROAR is a worthy cause that raises awareness for an important social issue, and helps to raise funds for the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre.

5. What's your dream bike?
Though it's really hard to just pick one, I would have to say a white Ducati 848

6. What cartoon character do you think you resemble?
Jerry of "Tom and Jerry". I'm always making trouble.

3. What's your most memorable moment in motorcycling?
Riding drenched in a full-blown thunderstorm from the 401 - 427 - QEW, and taking an exit ramp into a puddle so deep the water tidal-waved over me and my bike. I'm still amazed I didn't drop...or drown. But I got a free bike wash!

4. What prompted you to join the WROAR Organizing committee?
I wanted to share in the amazing camaraderie of a group of riders who came together to support a cause that's not too often brought to light. I love the sense of empowerment they give to women - and any riders for that matter!
