Vice President - Danny Barber

Although I have been a petrol head my whole life I stayed away from bikes until forced to get a 125cc for the commute to work. 9 months later, passed my test had a ‘real bike’ and was a member of the Knights. Riding my cruiser and England 7 has been a great way for me to unwind from life’s stresses and enjoy the company of like minded friends across the globe.

Secretary - Ivor

"I entered the biking world in 2009 when I did my CBT purely so that I could use a cheap means of transport to commute to work. Little did I know how addictive I would find Riding and eventually  I passed my full test a couple of years later. I joined the Blue knights in 2014 after hearing about it through colleagues. The motto " There are no strangers in the Blue knights, only friends you haven't met" couldn't be more true.  You just can't beat riding with like minded people and finding new places to explore. "

Treasurer - Chris

Webmaster - Neil


One of the only non-serving members of England VII, Neil was voted in as an honorary member after helping and assisting in the clubs' merchandise, running and resources.

He now takes over the running of the website and social media pages for the chapter in between riding his motorcycle and playing his many guitars !

Director - Tracey


The one and only Tracey, known by fellow Knights all over the world was a member before England 7 existed and remains an original member. As the former VP she is a great source of knowledge and always in the middle of party but only kept in the chapter for her cake making skills. Tracey remains one of the best ears to bend should you need a vent or advice.

Paul served Essex Police for 27 years as a Constable, finished his career on Traffic and continues to serve as a Civilian investigator.
