Blue Knights Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club To Host 42nd Annual Blessing of The Bikes

W. DENNIS- The Cape Cod & Islands Chapter of the Blue Knights International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club has announced that the ‘Annual Blessing of the Bikes’ will return for its 42nd year.

In past years, up to 1,500 motorcycles traveled from every State in New England to be a part of the Blessing, with an estimated 2,000-2,250 people in attendance.

The Blue Knights International Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club was formed in the spring of 1974 in Bangor, Maine, with the MA VI Chapter being formed at the start of 1976.

There are presently over 20,000 members in 635 Chapters located in 25 Countries around the world.

The Blue Knights have donated well over $16.5 million in cash, goods and services to more than 1,700 charities, including Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS – Assisting surviving family members of Law Enforcement Officers killed in the line of duty), Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE), and more.

The event will be held on Sunday, May 6th, at West Dennis Beach, MA, with the gate opening at 9:30 AM.

The on-site Blessing will occur at Noon, so bikes must plan on being there, registered and parked by 11:45 AM.

The minimum suggested participation donation is $5.00, with proceeds going to the Blue Knights to be used for charitable purposes.
