Our general membership meetings are held at the Post at 6:00 p.m. on the 2nd Wednesday of each month.

The American Legion Riders are a diverse group of motorcycle enthusiasts sharing common goals. All are members of the American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary, or Sons of the American Legion—and all are united by patriotism. They answer the call to ride in service to America’s military, her veterans, and for the children and youth of our country.

The activities of the Legion Riders are limited only by the imagination of the members of the local Riders organizations. Many chapters have independently raised thousands of dollars for local children’s hospitals, schools, veterans’ homes, severely wounded servicemen and women and American Legion scholarship programs.

Since 2006, Riders have united nationally for The American Legion Legacy Run to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for the American Legion Legacy Scholarship Fund, established for the children of those who given their lives on active duty defending our freedoms around the world.

What started in Garden City, Michigan in 1993 has turned into a national organization of over 106 thousand American Legion Riders. Chapter 155 of Crystal River Florida is proud to be a part of it.
