No Rules RidersNo Rules Riders is the name of a riding group that seems to be gaining some popularity. It's an international organization of riding clubs, where the rules are that there are no rules. In fact, there are no officers, and no limitations. They are just groups of friends who plan rides, and ride them.

The No Rules Riders started a few years ago between some friends who wanted to join a riding group. But they found that all the groups wanted money, and had meetings and people to answer. So they decided to create their own group called "No Rules Motorcycle Club". They made about 100 shirts and sold them at cost. But it was then they found that they were not really a "motorcycle club" but a riding club. So they changed their name to "No Rules Riders".

About a year passed and after talking to people in other areas at bike rallies, they decided to take No Rules Riders globally. In January of 2005 they launched their website. Soon after, four additional chapters have started up, along another two members outside of the United States.

No Rules Riders allows anyone to start their own chapter, and immediately begin recruiting people to join. They can post events and pictures and links to their favorite sites.

The idea of "free riding clubs" seems to be catching on. The group I ride with, Iron Horses Riding Club, was founded on a similar idea. We had all been members of the Southern Cruisers Riding Club, when we discovered that there were too many rules, too much bureacracy, and not very many people wanting to ride. So a few of us formed the Iron Horses, and the rest of us joined in.

Riding without rules and limitations, that's really what the spirit of riding is all about isn't it?
