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 is based on the Ruff Ryders Motorcycle Club, as the Uptown Riders appear to be predominately African-American and drive Japanese sport bikes. 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 gang sell merchandise such as clothing, DVDs, books, and motorcycle equipment on their website as an attempt to "legitimize" their operation.
Their clubhouse is inaccessible; however, the player can arm wrestle with members of the Uptown Riders outside the clubhouse.
