The Aleppo Cycle Unit is composed of ten matched motorcycles, which
represent Aleppo Shriners in parades, ceremonials, and other functions
as directed by the Potentate. Within this proud elite motorcycle unit we
have a Precision Drill Team and Parade Unit.
The Precision Drill Team is composed of capable and
well-qualified riders who skillfully perform synchronized precision
maneuvers in competition with other Motorcycle teams across the country.
Our award winning Competition Team has been consistently judged
and given high marks at Imperial Shrine Sessions, Northeast Shrine Days
and other events. Members of this unit are also proud active members of
the International and Northeast Association of Shrine Motor Corps.
Membership is open to all Aleppo Shriners whether you are a seasoned
rider, non - rider or just want to learn or sharpen your motorcycle
skills. Come meet and ride with the proudest motorcycle team in all of

The Aleppo Shrine Motorcycle Parade Unit and Precision Drill Team is the
elite motorcycle unit in our area. We are invited to ride and entertain
the crowds in the finest parades throughout Massachusetts. When a parade
wants excitement, they call on the Aleppo Cycles. Always a crowd
pleaser, the thrilling tight formations of our identically matched
"full-dressed motorcycles" is even more fun to do than it is to watch.
The pride not only shows in our precision riding skills but also in the
impeccable, showroom condition of our ten (10) identical Harley-Davidson
Our Drill Sergeant makes sure we get it right during our weekly Tuesday
night practices, held rain or shine, throughout the year. We ride
indoors in inclement weather, in the massive, ventilated, rodeo- and
circus-size Shrine Auditorium.
Our Maintenance Officers make sure our bikes not only look sharp, but
are maintained in tip-top working order. And, of course, our Captain
makes sure we look- and conduct ourselves- as sharp as everyone expects
from an elite Unit of the Aleppo Shrine.
The Nobles of the Cycles Unit not only take pride in what we do, but why
we do it: we never forget the children in the Shriners ‘Burns and
Orthopedic Hospitals. Our riding in parades is fun for us and for the
crowds who gather to watch us, but it also raises funds to help the
hospitals and the kids. And that is what makes worthwhile all the time
and work invested. Shriners are famous for knowing how to have a good
time. The Aleppo Cycle Unit members do our best to maintain that
reputation. We have a good time whenever we get together; whether it's
with noble Unit members for weekly practice or our monthly business
meeting, or at the many social events with our "significant others."
