9 Community Futures offices are proud to once again sponsor Canada’s MOST Rider Friendly Community Contest!

The Rider Friendly Business Association, Belt Drive Betty Media, &  8 Community Futures offices have partnered up to find out which community in Canada loves Riders and which Community Riders love back!

Motorcyclists by their very nature are explorers. They are constantly looking for hidden gems, that amazing roadside attraction, an intoxicating stretch of road, that incredible cup of coffee, a wonderful music festival or classic car/motorcycle show ‘n’ shine.   

And when they find that hidden gem, they will tell up to 40 of their friends about it!

Canada is a BIG Country, how do riders find out about your town, city or village?

With over $60,000 in FREE MARKETING prizes to be given away, this is one contest that will put your community out in front of a community of people who will spend money in your town and all the way to get to it.  Invite them to your community and tell them why you would welcome their trade in your town and what you have to offer them.

Whatever it is your community has to offer that you think motorcyclists need to know about, make sure you include that in your nomination!

Nominations for Canada’s MOST Rider Friendly Community Contest run until March 29, 2019 at Midnight MST.
