Who we are

The Blue Knights® is a non-profit fraternal organization consisting of active and retired law enforcement men & women who enjoy riding motorcycles. In the Spring of 1974, several law enforcement officers from the Bangor, Maine (USA) area met and and formed a small, local motorcycle club. The rest, as they say, is history.

Soon, Blue Knight chapters were being formed in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and beyond. With the addition of Canada, and later Australia, the Blue Knights became an international organization.

Our Founding Fathers are: Joel Rudom, Bill Robinson, Doug Miner, Ed Gallant, Mike Hall, Chuck Gesner, Wayne Labree, Chuck Shuman

As of 1 June 2009, we have 599 chapters and almost 20,000 members in 29 countries.

Benefits of Knighthood

It is difficult stating what makes the Blue Knights® so special. Perhaps the following will help explain the kinds of feelings that flow when a bunch of motorcycle-riding police officers get together.

What we do

  • Share a Common Bond

    Enjoy the company of different people who share not only the common bond of a career in law enforcement, but also a love of motorcycles.

  • Visit Friends

    Visit your friends in any of our member countries and be treated like family.

  • Include Your Family

    Ride with the Ladies of the Knights and Little Knights who give that added family touch.

  • There Are No Strangers

    Receive get-well cards from people you’ve never met. (There are no strangers in the Blue Knights, only friends you haven’t met.)

  • Give Back

    Go to handicapped children’s camps, give the kids rides and see the smiles on their faces.

  • Help Others

    Take part in various fund-raising activities for those less fortunate.
