Originally chartered with 14 members in 2010 by the Department of Tennessee, The Riders charter has grown to over 40 members. American Legion Riders is open to any motorcycle owning member of Post 2, including Sons of the American Legion and Auxiliary members.
American Legion Riders (ALR) meet monthly at Harley-Davidson of Knoxville until our Post 2 building is completed. The Riders hold monthly “Fun Runs” in the local area and an annual “Fun Run” out of the area for a few days.
The Riders are also very active in the community. They serve as escorts for the Gold Star Family Members at the Mountain Man Memorial March, serve on flag lines, as well as providing funeral escorts alongside the Patriot Guard Riders. The riders also participate throughout the community by raising funds and/or providing assistance to various charities.
Our monthly meetings are on the Third Thursday of each month at Harley-Davidson of Knoxville, located at 5810 Clinton Highway, Knoxville, TN at 6:30pm.
Membership to ALR is open to all Post 2 Legion, SAL, and Auxiliary members who are in good standing. For more information on Post 2 riders, please contact ALR President Dan Chipman at (865)719-1207 or firstname.lastname@example.org and follow our Facebook page.
