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:

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

For each ride completed and documented, you will receive:

Certificate Of Accomplishment
Long Distance Riders Designation Patch

Motorcycle certification gained through other venues can be used for Long Distance Riders as long as all criteria is met.

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. I hope you enjoy your ride and the feeling of accomplishment that follows.

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