                             The American Legion Riders
​             We have lost most of our riders. We NEED RIDERS!!!
We are part of Post 635, so you must be a member of Post 635 to join. We are Legionnaires who ride motorcycles or just love being around them. There are many opportunities to join other Posts to ride for a cause. Let us know if you have a fun place to visit on the bikes.

We do fund raisers while having a great time. We also join the Patriot Guard Riders in many of their functions. On some of these rides we have police escorts and ride with buses filled with Military Units returning home or being deployed. It’s a proud feeling.

Some rides are short; half day trip, and others are long; more than a day trip. Your choice.  We also ride in parades like Memorial Day and ISU Homecoming Parades. We don't always need a reason, we just like to ride!

Come see what we are about and join us on our next ride.  We meet the same time as our regular American Legion meetings: 2nd and 4th Thursday each month at 7:00PM. See our Home page for address.​

cause Sat 28 Sept, 2013.
John Schroder and Greg Struve rode to fund a program to help children so they don't become a victim like Destiny; a child that was sexually and physically abused, and killed by her father. We started at VFW 454 in Bloomington, rode to Destiny's burial site for a service, then to LeRoy, and back to Bloomington. The weather was perfect.
