About The Riders


We sponsor numerous motorcycle events in our local area and support local veteran charities and community programs.

The American Legion Riders (ALR) are members of the American Legion, the American Legion Auxiliary, and Sons of the American Legion who are also motorcycle enthusiasts. They can be found participating in parades, partaking in motorcycling events, and supporting the communities in which they live and work.  The American Legion Riders is family-oriented just as its parent organization.

Our Purpose

Participate in Parades and other ceremonies that are in keeping with the Aims and Purposes of the American Legion. To promote motorcycle safety programs and to provide a social atmosphere for the American Legion Members who share the same interest.  We shall use our Association to promote and support programs of the American Legion through service to our Community, State and Nation.  While the American Legion Riders was started in Michigan in the fall of 1993 by Commander Clarence Hill, who later went on to become National Commander.  As the membership of the American Legion Riders is a very diverse group, so are the programs that they are involved in.  By allowing each American Legion Rider Chapter to give their members the ability to manage their program at the Post level, the program has been allowed to grow. 

The recognition of local communities has marked the program as a true success. The American Legion Riders Group in Michigan was honored by the Local City Council and Michigan House of Representatives when they drafted a resolution declaring the American Legion Riders an asset to the community. Motorcyclists can be a very dedicated group of people. When you combine this with the fact that they are Legionnaires, you create a win/win situation.
