The Uptown Riders are a motorcycle gang featured in the first downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned. Their members include Malc and DeSean and their headquarters are in Northwood, Liberty City. The club rides Japanese sport bikes and appear to be predominately African-American, much like the real life Ruff Ryders. The Uptown Riders did not appear in GTA IV, but are present in The Lost and Damned. Even though Malc seems to be allied with The Lost Brotherhood, the Uptown Riders will still attack Johnny if he is armed. The Uptown Riders are a GTA IV replica of real life's Ruff Ryders. They too ride Japenese motorcycles through New York City (mainly Harlem) which in GTA they do it in Holland and Northwood of Liberty City.
They are also said to sell mercandise such as clothing, DVDs, books, and motorcycle equipment. You can hear this on the Beat 102.7 or see this on their website.
Their clubhouse is inaccessable, though you can arm wrestle with members of the Uptown Riders outside the clubhouse.
