The American Legion Riders Chapter 470 maintain an inspirational tradition for all American Legions. Membership in the American Legion Riders is open to all qualified members of the Legion, SAL and AUX.
Every Thursday Night, we invite our fellow riders out for Bike Night. We gather as friends and enjoy the company of our fellow riders and post members. On the 4th Thursday of Every Month, we have our monthly ALR meeting at 7 pm. If the weather is acceptable, we plan to have kick stands up at 6 pm for a group ride.
