Wakinyan is a Lakota
(Teton Sioux) word for "Thunder".

In a mythical context,
the word is taken to
mean "Thunder bird".

We use this as a logo
for our bike club.

Wow! What a weekend that was...



Wakinyan 2016 was just mental! We know you lot enjoyed it...we could tell from the gallons of sweat in the room...

Preparations are underway for the 2017 Wakinyan - our TENTH rally, so we'll be giving you something special, as you can imagine. Tickets will be on sale early in the new year, keep an eye out on here and our Facebook page for details.

charity



We haven't stopped argueing about who we are going to support in 2016, but when we do, we shall let you know. In the meantime, this is what happened to the money YOU raised last year...


Presentation of cheque to Chernobyl Children’s Project (UK)

In 2015, the amount raised was £1000 and went to support the Chernobyl Children’s Project (UK). This charity supports children, families and young people in Belarus, the country worst affected by the 1986 Nuclear Disaster.

If you'd like to know more about this worthy cause, then please click this link and have a nosey round the website.

You can ask just about any member of this club about the kids, we've met a bunch of them over the last few years. Their stories are truly heartbreaking, but the smiles on their faces when they rev the tits off some of our bikes is absolutely fabulous!
