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.

Empire City MC's open general meetings are held 8pm-9pm on the first Wednesday of each month* at "The Centre" 208 W 13th St. Check the activity sheet at the front desk to see which room we will be in. All interested men and prospective members are welcome to attend. *Always check our calendar in event of inclement weather or public holiday.


Biker Weekend Registration Open

It's that time of year again! Our annual Biker Weekend over Memorial Day weekend! This is a MOTORCYCLE ONLY EVENT. You must arrive by motorcycle (rider or a buddy). In prior years we've brought you the exciting Jell-O Museum in LeRoy, Don & Bob's for "Ground Rounds", Seabreeze Amusement Park, Beautiful Sodus Point, the "Motorcycle Roller Coaster" (a/k/a Jenks Rd) and who could forget the eleven pound block of five-year-old cheese from the Heluva Good! Cheese Factory outlet store?

You could spend over $25,000 and fly to Chicago for the International Mister Leather Beauty Pageant, or you could spend $40 (including accommodations and four meals) and party with the "cool kids" of Empire City MC. The choice is yours.
