Blue Knights Florida Chapter XVIII
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
As of 1 March 2012, we have 600 chapters
and over 20,000 members in 24 countries.
This is our Chapter XVIII from Sarasota/
Manatee Counties, Florida.
Blue Knights Pledge
As a Blue Knight I pledge to act with
honor and pride to promote
motorcycling and motorcycle safety
by being an example of the safe use,
operation and enjoyment of
motorcycles. I will work at all times
to improve the relationship between
the motorcycling law enforcement
community and the general public. The
fraternal spirit will always guide me
in relating to other Blue Knights.
