The Peace River Chapter of ABATE is one of the oldest chapters in Florida. Established in 1983, the Peace River Chapter has always been about supporting ALL motorcyclists in the state. From attending legislative issues at the state capital, to meeting with local lawmakers, these individuals stand strong in making a difference.
There is a dedicated group of volunteers that unselfishly work to support the causes and disciplines of ABATE. We are motorcycling enthusiasts from all walks of life. We lobby and educate the government and the general public to promote motorcycling in a safe and positive image. We endeavor to enlist the cooperation and participation of all organizations and individuals that share a similar interest in preserving our American tradition of FREEDOM.
We promote motorcycle safety, training, and political awareness. We are not a club or a gang. We fund our work through toy runs, events, and other motorcycling activities. We are your neighbors and friends who work, pay taxes, and get involved with our community. We serve and support our country and believe in freedom. We use all legal means to protect our rights without infringing on the rights of others.
1. To become a powerful and viable political force in legislative matters concerning the motorcyclist in Florida.
2. To promote the safe riding habits without infringing on individual freedoms.
3. To motivate the bikers to write letters to their legislators before, during and after the legislative session.
4. To furnish our members with a newsletter that keeps all bikers informed in regards to upcoming legislation.
