A little bit about us...

All of our members own and ride motorcycles and that's a requirement! Along with being at least 21 years old, be a gay or bisexual male who's properly licensed and insured to ride a motorcycle. We meet often to ride, eat/drink, plan or just hang out. We keep it pretty simple.

Some of our recurring events are: Memorial Day weekend is our Motorcycle Weekend, a long-weekend trip somewhere where we can enjoy our company and go riding. Traditionally, it's been the finger lakes region of New York State. During 'Pride Week' we have our annual Motorcycle Christening & Blessing on Friday, our FREE Biker's Picnic the following Saturday, then it's Folsom Street East that Sunday. The following Sunday (the last Sunday in June) is the big New York City Gay Pride March. In the first half of December, we host a Holiday Party and Gift Drive which directly benefits Rising Ground Foster Child Care Program. It's a great cause and a grand event! There are various other events throughout the year as posted in our online calendar.

There's also the anniversary runs which occur every five years (since the club began in 1964). These are special celebrations which commemorate every five years of our existence as a club. We typically take a week-long motorcycle trip in the spring/summer -- and later in the year enjoy a private boat cruise with dinner and dancing in the New York harbour. Photos of some of these events are also in our gallery.

Why ECMC? When you're not the lead dog, the view doesn't change much -- don't accept any substitutions, there's only one ECMC and that's us. We were here before AIDS and we'll be here after it. We existed FIVE YEARS before the Stonewall Riots took place in June 1969. We are what dozens of other clubs aspire to be. As with any organization such as ours, from time to time there are regime changes -- and some of the people who have left Empire City MC have gone on to form other clubs like Wheels MC and Cycle MC. Empire City was one of the founding clubs behind the Atlantic Motorcycle Coordinating Council (A.M.C.C.), which first started to develop in 1976. We're still with them today! Wonder why we're still around? Why not check us out and find out for yourself!
