RoadTrip Rewards - A Smarter Way to Ride

Membership Card When I started this little motorcycle media company 14.5 years ago, I dreamed that one day it would be like a TripAdvisor, CAA/AAA, Chamber of Commerce and a Tourism Office all rolled into one.

Well, we are a few steps closer to that happening now.

We have a number of media properties that make up Belt Drive Betty Media:

The Busted Knuckle Chronicles, our national weekly newspaper, our TV Show, Ride Like a Local  which airs both on EastLink TV and YouTube, our national events calendars, www.canadianmotorcycleevents.com and of course the international news feeds site, www.beltdrivebetty.com

We also have the Rider Friendly Directory & the Rider Friendly Support Network.

The Rider Friendly Directory is comprised of all of the Busted Knuckle Chronicles' advertisers and the various business partners that make it so we can afford to bring the news of our community and the event information to you the rider, FOR FREE.  It used to be a part of the Busted Knuckle Chronicles site, but needed to be extricated and put into its own hosting environment.

The same with the Rider Friendly Support Network which used to be part of www.beltdrivebetty.com.

We combined the directory and the support network on one site in these fancy upgraded mobile programs that make it so handy and convenient to find help if you break down on the road, to get the information on where to eat, play and stay like a local = NO APP NEEDED!

You can use the directory without logging in, but when you log in, you get access to the social community, the Rider Friendly Support Network and a membership card that offers you a ton of savings and safety supports.  Our program is not meant to take the place of your local riding club program, instead it's meant to augment/add to it.

Membership Card That is why we do not charge riders for any of the services we provide to them.

Our card is virtual, located in your profile page and therefor never far away.

We have mom and pop businesses that are offering you, the rider

5-15% discounts at their places of business.

We also have some chains like Holloway Lodgings and Choice Hotels offering deep 15% discounts on hotel stays and in the case of Choice Hotels, they are now offering our membership the 15-20% discount along with the chance to earn a $50 gift card when you stay two times by the end of July (you have to register for that)  Check out the Special Offers page:

Choice Hotels directory

Back when we started promoting and listing our advertisers for our national newspaper in a directory fashion, the directory had super limited functionality. Today, the directory offers the business owner a way to market that is affordable and meaningful to their business and it offers the riders a ton of support and savings!

And now on to our big announcements:

Holloway Lodging and Choice Hotels have both joined the Rider Friendly Business Association!

All 34 Holloway properties across Canada are now Rider Friendly offering a 15% discount to our members!

 

Special Offers to RidersChoice is offering 15-20% discounts right around the world - that's right all 6,400+ Choice Hotel properties are offering our members a discount!

Use Choice Hotels in the search function to find the one nearest you and use our booking code to get the discount!

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the official press release from Choice Hotels Canada:

If you are blessed enough to be riding today, please ride like everyone around you is blind and cannot see you.

If you live in Grande Prairie come on out to our Cruise Night - Motley Cue BBQ will be on hand and there are great prizes up for grabs and a 50/50 draw all in support of the Afghanistan War Monument & Memorial Park.
