Our Story

Florida XVIII

Florida Blue Knights    Chapter XVIII  was founded in Venice, Florida and became a chartered member of The Blue Knights   International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club in 1995. 

 

Our members are active and retired County, City, State and Federal law enforcement officers.  Many also have varied and distinguished military backgrounds.

Our Chapter is located on the beautiful Gulf Coast of Florida where our members live and work in several Gulf communities including Sarasota, Bradenton, Parish, Myakka City, Englewood, Ellenton, Nakomis, North Port, Port Charlotte and Venice.  We are fortunate to enjoy year round motorcycling weather and ride various makes of motorcycles.

 

We are proud to support various charities including the Sheriff's Youth Ranch in Bradenton Florida and Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) among others. 

This is not just a riding group. We are a family fraternity composed of active and retired Law Enforcement Officers, their families and friends who believe in the principle that;

 

"There are no strangers, only friends you haven't met." 

 

If you are a retired or active law enforcement officer and feel you qualify, please contact us for more information and an application.  We would love to have you join our family.
