Empire City Motorcycle Club:
52 Years of Riding & Brotherhood!


Empire City Motorcycle Club, Inc. of New York City, was founded by a group of twelve motorcycle riders in October, 1964 as a motorcycle owner/rider club. We are the oldest ongoing gay all riding organization in the country and a vital part of the gay community in New York metropolitan area.

All interested men and prospective members are welcome to attend. *Always check our calendar in event of inclement weather or public holiday.
