Knights On Bikes

The purpose of the Knights on Bikes (KonB) shall be to enjoy camaraderie with our brothers of faith as motorcycle riders.

To offer assistance to any Knight, the Catholic Church, individuals, charities and the communities in which we live

through charitable work and leadership.

To promote the spiritual needs of the Knights of Columbus and to strive to encourage faith, fellowship and service.
