Al­berta.

‘ We are up against some stiff com­pe­ti­tion. Port Al­berni has a huge run ev­ery year, with over 1,000 riders and Nisku is the home of Black Jacks, which is a big, big biker bar. That is the start and stop for Can­non­ball Run for Ride for Sight and Ride for Dad, some big runs,” she said. “It’s not like it’s a cake­walk for us.”

This means that those who sup­port Drumheller need to get out and vote on­line at www.rid­er­friend­ly­con­test.ca.

The web­site asks you to reg­is­ter and vot­ers are al­lowed to cast one vote a day.

“The se­cret to win­ning is vot­ing ev­ery day, and it is go­ing to take that kind of push. As of Fri­day, March 17, Drumheller was trail­ing Port Al­berni by 38 votes.

Buchamer says while some of the other lo­ca­tions host some big ral­lies, Drumheller is more of an all sum­mer des­ti­na­tions, with riders stream­ing in on a daily ba­sis.

“We have sev­eral ral­lies and run through ev­ery year. We have more go­ing on. We may not get 1,000 riders at a time, but we get 500. They do it once and we do it ev­ery week­end,” she said.

To vote go to www.rid­er­friend­ly­con­test.ca and fol­low the links to vote.

“I’m hop­ing peo­ple get be­hind it, they cer­tainly did in the first round. We need to get through the se­cond round and then af­ter that, get through the fi­nal round,” Buchamer said.
