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 with chapters in the United States, Canada, Australia, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Sweden, Belgium, England, Switzerland and the Netherlands. 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, Cerebral Palsy, The Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation of the United States, and many others 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 who enjoy recreational motorcycling. The Club is dedicated to improving the motorcycling image, promote safety and promote motorcycling as a family recreation, and just having fun.
