The MotorcycleRoads.com (McR) Story
My name is Bill Belei, and I joined the military back in 1986 and served for over 25 years until I retired in 2011. Over those years, I moved 13 times and put a lot of miles on motorcycles exploring different parts of the country and finding out firsthand the diversity of our country's roads and scenery. Yet, any of you who have spent a lot of time on a motorcycle know that there is nothing like a great motorcycle road. Unfortunately for me, every time I moved, I was faced with the challenging task of finding where the best local motorcycle roads were. Making matters worse was that as my life got busier with family and career responsibilities, I found that I had less time to go out hunting for good roads.
So way back in 1998 I started MotorcycleRoads.com as a way for all of us riders to quickly and easily find quality motorcycle roads in whatever part of the country we live in or are traveling through. And, McR goes beyond just providing you with a list of roads to try, we provide you with detailed descriptions of the route's scenery, drive enjoyment, and even an idea of what there is to do in that area (tourism opportunities) when it is time to take a break from riding. Every route we describe has its own description page complete with written descriptions, ratings/reviews, pictures, and some even have videos taken during a ride of that route. MotorcycleRoads.com now takes things further by also informing you of motorcycle events, clubs, and favorite places of riders in various states, provinces, and/or countries. Overall, millions of motorcycle riders are discovering that visiting MotorcycleRoads.com is the first step in finding and planning great motorcycle rides because - great roads lead to great rides!
Over the twenty plus years McR has been serving the motorcycle community, we've had a lot of success in helping riders get the most out of their rides (as highlighted by the many inspiring rider testimonials received over the years). And, the McR web site has really grown by leaps and bounds over those couple of decades as we've gone through many major upgrades & revamps and just moved into McR Version 10.0 as of about November of 2019. A lot of great new improvements, enhancements, and functionality has been delivered by McR Version 10.0 and that major leap forward could not have been made without the generous support of donors who stepped up and provided a portion of the funding need to fund the V10.0 upgrade. And, we're not done getting better ... not even close ... as we have big plans for the future and we hope you'll come along for the ride!!
