About The Blue Knights

The Blue Knights started in April 1974, when a small group of Bangor-Brewer, Maine, Law Enforcement officers organized a local recreational motorcycle club. In following years the organization mushroomed into an International Motorcycle Club.

We currently have over 20,000 members in 637 chapters, in 29 countries.

The Blue Knights have been very active throughout these countries on fund-raising projects such as Heart Fund, Cystic Fibrosis, Ronald McDonald House, Children's Wards in Hospitals, Nursing Homes. Abused Women and Children, Handicapped Children's Camps, Concerns of  Police Survivors, Special Olympics, Cerebral Palsy and many other Charities too numerous to mention. The Blue Knights join law enforcement personnel around the world in a fraternal organization, which includes federal, state, provincial, county, and local police; all of whom enjoy recreational motorcycling. The Club is dedicated to improving the motor cycling image, promote safety and promote motorcycling as a family recreation, and just having fun.  Spouses and children often accompany our members to the various rides and functions.
