My mission in life has become one of creating a great Rider friendly phone book/directory and other useful resources for riders.

The theme is Canadian - when you are in Canada be you a Canadian rider or a visitor to our beautiful country, helping you to find the services, the rides, the people that are integral to your trip is what I want to do and what I have been working on really hard for two years now.

In the last two weeks we have added 15 new business partners to our Rider Friendly Business Association - some from Ontario, BC and Alberta.

That brings our association up to about 175 locations and 120 businesses participating!
Not bad for one sales person  - me.

Now folks - imagine - if I could find one motivated sales person for Ontario and one person for eastern Canada, how good could our community directory be? How great could that little BDB card be? Being able to ride anywhere in Canada, whip out your card or phone book and either get a special service or perhaps a discount or hey - a play and stay offer from say hotels and golf courses - wouldn't that make riding even more pleasurable than it already is?

I would really appreciate it if you read this blog, are a member of my Face Book page or Fan page or Rider Friendly Page,  if you would - if you haven't already, sign up for the FREE membership on - once you are registered and approved - go to your profile page - there is a link there, PRINT MY BDB Card - click on that link - then either print off the card and laminate it for your wallet or write the number down in the back of your Little Black Book of Rider Friendly Businesses and put it in your saddle bags or dash bag.

Use your card often - tell the businesses you found out about them through our network - otherwise they won't stay with us and if they don't stay with us, none of the free services we provide to riders will stay free.

In our on line phone book, you can rate and review the businesses - we love stories about our partners - participate in whatever way works for you - be it flashing your membership card, rating a business, sending us pictures - we just want our partners knowing that riders appreciate them going the extra distance.  Now remember folks, the phone book - the Canadian Riders helping riders our events calendars and more are also available to our members on

We are working hard to provide you with the tools and resources that will make riding in Canada more rewarding than it already is! Join us - it is FREE...

  1. Congratulations on a job well done...It will be great to have a large rider friendly community/directory in Canada both for local riders and for our neighbors from the south visiting our beautiful landscape on their iron horses...This service is great as everyone will know where the riding community hangs out...much safer that way.
