Passion for the ride, impact for the community!

The Café Racers Union (CRU) by design is a club with the goals of maintaining a social environment where we can enjoy a multitude of venues and have a positive impact on the community through sharing our passion of motorcycles and providing support for communities in need. CRU picks several charities per year to raise funding in support of its cause. Charity groups are selected by the CRU membership.  

The CRU is a Gentleman's riding club dedicated to the riding, history, preservation and sharing of all things known from the Cafe Racer society. CRU Members are highly successful professionals with backgrounds from military branches to corporate executives and business owners with a focus on turning their passion for the ride and moto's into impact for the community. CRU members are not required to have a “Café racer” and all marquees are welcome. Café racers are a manufacturer’s model today, in the 1950's they were a social group within the riding community and rode a broad variety of motorcycles.
