Welcome to the Long Distance Riders Certification site!

Long Distance Riders (LDR) has been developed as a certification site to document your long distance riding achievements.

Would you enjoy testing your riding skills and endurance? Would you like to become a member of this elite motorcycle group?
Then welcome to the Long Distance Riders. We are Bad to the Bone.

LDR is currently certifying four distinct motorcycle ride achievements:


Easy Rider

500 Miles in 12 Hours

Full Throttle

1000 Miles in 24 Hours

King of the Road

1500 Miles in 36 Hours

Born to be Wild

Coast to Coast in 48 Hours

Easy Rider (km)*

805 Kilometers in 12 Hours

Full Throttle (km)*

1610 Kilometers in 24 Hours

King of the Road (km)*

2415 Kilometers in 36 Hours
* Certification eligible only to LDR members residing outside of the United States or where kilometers is a standard unit.

MEMBER RIDERS NEW OPTION: Get your certificate electronically!

At this time, shipping both inside and outside the United States has become very difficult. We are suggesting a more cost-effective alternative.

Long Distance Riders will be happy to certify your ride by sending your certificate electronically. This special $20 package includes:

  1. Certificate of Achievement (suitable for framing).
  2. Your name and achievement listed on our Long Distance Rider’s Web Page.
The cost for this service is just $20 instead of the full package price of $35 (not including shipping). Once our postal service is running more smoothly, you’ll be welcome to apply for additional items via mail.

Note: Long Distance Riders is still accepting orders for the full package if that is what you prefer. However, please note that we cannot guarantee a timely delivery.

After your ride is completed, please send your documentation to jackp210@aol.com, and let us know if you’d like the $20 special package.

This is an unfortunate circumstance for businesses in the U.S. and abroad. We hope to ease the burden on our members by offering an easier, more cost-effective solution.

For each ride completed and documented for “miles”, you will receive:

Certificate Of Accomplishment
Long Distance Riders Designation Patch
Long Distance Riders Motorcycle License Frame
Long Distance Riders Decal

For our riders in kilometer countries, each ride completed in “kilometers” will receive:

Certificate of Accomplishment
Long Distance Riders Designation Patch
Long Distance Riders Decal
Another LDR item to replace the motorcycle license frame as these do not fit licenses from a kilometer country.

Take a moment to read over the Rules page along with the documentation necessary to become certified. Once your ride and documentation is completed, send in your data for your official Long Distance Riders patch, certificate, decal, and license frame. We hope you enjoy your ride and the feeling of accomplishment that follows.

Send your completed forms and receipts to jackp210@aol.com, or you can mail them to:

Jack Powis, President
Long Distance Riders

Tallahassee, FL 32309

We'd appreciate your input regarding our site, our logos and patches, and other rides and experiences you'd like to send. We look forward to hearing from you. Remember, most importantly, safety is our number one concern.
