Welcome to the Blue Knights LE MC England 7 Chapter

The Blue Knights® International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, is a non-profit fraternal organization consisting of active and retired law enforcement officers who enjoy riding motorcycles. In the Spring of 1974, several law enforcement officers from the Bangor, Maine (USA) area met and formed a small, local motorcycle club. 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 charitable organization has contributed over $18.8 million dollars toward various charities throughout the world since statistics were kept. Our organization is comprised of active, and retired law enforcement officers and we strive to promote our organization as being a family fraternity. Spouses and children often accompany our members to the various rides and functions. Members can ride a bike of their choosing, and are not mandated to riding an American made motorcycle (ie. Harley Davidson). We do not have a probationary period for members, or prospects, and women are equal in our organization not only as members, but in leadership positions locally and internationally within the Blue Knights.

Blue Knights England 7 started in the summer of 2011 when, 6 ex Blue Knights England 2 members, were drinking single malt whiskey at Redmire Station, Yorkshire. This was a yearly pilgramage where we all turned up, rode our bikes, played cards, chatted and drank whiskey, where it was often found the best ideas came out after a few drams! We had all been in the Blue Knights for many years and we were all chatting about starting up a new Essex based chapter….and so the idea blossomed.

After our last whiskey drinking trip and having returned to Essex, enquires established that England 7, which originally covered Essex & Suffolk, currently had no members. So like the Phoenix rising out of the fire Blue Knights, England 7 was reborn, and received its charter in November 2011.
At the start we had 8 members…which soon increased as Tracey was still a serving member of Essex Police and was spreading the word.
Originally we had meetings at Chigwell Sports and Social Club and Essex Police Sports and social club in Chelmsford.
Some club nights it was “the usual suspects” turning up to club nights – a maximum of 5 people! Some nights it was just the President and Vice President! From those slow nights and simple times, England 7 has gone from strength to strength, to nearly 60 members as we stand at this moment in time!
Our own adopted club house at Broomfield Royal Britsh legion regularly has over 20 knights turning up to club nights.
We are holding our first ever rally in 2024 and if it goes well hopefully it will be a yearly thing.
Blue Knights England 7 are not just a bike club, we are a family who likes a laugh, good company, good food, and most of all riding bikes!
