The Road Rats MC, a London-based independent English outlaw motorcycle club[1] established in the 1960s. Arguably, one of the "oldest and toughest motorcycle clubs in the country" which became notable for its clashes with the English Hells Angels chapter, including a shooting on Chelsea Bridge, the Satan's Slaves MC,[2] in which two Road Rats were killed, and for murdering one of the founders of the Cycle Tramps MC.[3]

The Rats are notorious for having fallen out with almost every motorcycle club in the UK and a few outside of the UK.[4]
