History

PMC Members

 

The Philistines Motorcycle Club was founded in 2005 in the Northern Virginia area. The PMC originals were not interested in clubs with restrictions on bike brands, racial discrimination, riding styles, or questionable affiliations. So they established their own club.

After developing bylaws that fit their own values, these riders received a blessing from the local MC community, and the Philistines Motorcycle Club was born on October 8, 2005.


Modern ValuesPMC Member

PMC follows many of the traditional MC paths. We have a deep commitment among brothers, a traditional prospecting process, we respect the patch and the cut, and we respect other clubs.

We also understand the modern world. We ride all kinds of motorcycles. We don’t discriminate against people based on race or religion.  We aren’t tied to a specific “biker” image. We understand that job and family must often come before the club. We require members to have a fairly clean background and generally not be assholes.


Activities

We also stop to pet the doggos.

The PMC rides motorcycles first and foremost.

We ride our motorcycles to parties. We ride our motorcycles to bars. We ride our motorcycles to school, work, and each other’s homes. We ride motorcycles in any weather and all year. We are a Motorcycle Club.

Advocacy

The PMC advocates for motorcyclists’ rights. Our members are affiliated with the Motorcycle Riders Foundation, the Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists, and the Motorcycle Law Group, among others.

Causes

The PMC advocates for two primary causes:

 

 

PMC does not support efforts to repeal helmet laws. While we agree that the government should not be legislating personal safety, we also can’t seriously claim to care about rider safety while advocating for not wearing helmets.

  • We’re not AMA Sanctioned.
  • We’re not territorial. We claim no turf.
  • We’re not a cop, military, or veterans club
