The Blue Knights® International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, is a non-profit fraternal organisation consisting of active and retired law enforcement officers who enjoy riding motorcycles. In the Spring of 1974, several law enforcement officers from the Bangor, Maine area met and formed a small, local motorcycle club.
Soon, Blue Knight chapters were being formed throughout the US. With the addition of Canada, United Kingdom , Ireland and later Australia, the Blue Knights became an international organisation.
Our charitable organisation has contributed over £15.000,000 toward various charities throughout the world since statistics were kept.
Our organisation is comprised of active, and retired law enforcement officers and we strive to promote our organisation as being a family fraternity. Spouses and children often accompany our members to the various rides and functions.
Members can ride a bike of their choosing, and are not mandated to riding an American made motorcycle.
We do not have a probationary period for members, or prospects, and women are equal in our organisation not only as members, but in leadership positions locally and internationally within the Blue Knights. We consider that as a law Enforcement Officer you will have served a probationary period already. We do expect a degree of commitment and loyalty as a Brother or Sister Blue Knight.
England XI Club meetings are on the first Thursday of the month.
