Motorcycle Club Five ("MCV") is a family-oriented motorcycle club whose members are committed to Brotherhood, Friendship and Respect while enjoying and promoting the sport/hobby of riding motorcycles. We’re all about having fun, hanging out and partying together, but above all else, WE RIDE!

On any given weekend morning you’re likely to find us having a bite to eat while we prepare to ride the back roads we’re blessed to have in this region. Always well organized and well attended, our rides include local runs led by our qualified ride leaders, as well as many overnighters that we plan throughout the year. 

Stop in to meet us at Mondo Pizza and Bar on Main Street in Reisterstown, MD, where MCV meets every Thursday evening around 7:00pm to chill and laugh with brothers, sisters and friends over a bite and a few beers. We welcome all motorcycle enthusiasts to ride with us and apply for membership.
