Motorcycle riding with friends

by Editor on 07/28/14

I had an opportunity to go for a ride yesterday with Canadian Automotive & Motorcycle journalist Alexandra Straub, Economic Developer Mike B and professional photographer Konstantin Egorov. It was a great day for a ride, we met up in Aldergrove and started the 11 hour loop through Hope, Princeton, Merritt, Spences Bridge, back to Hope and from there back to Aldergrove for me, and Vancouver for them. Here's one of the pictures from the ride and the rest are on our Facebook page at https://facebook.com/vridetvcom

Stunning scenery while on a Motorcycle tour in British Columbia

by Editor on 06/22/14

Diane shot this stunning picture alongside Highway 5A while on the

Special thanks to Monica Dickinson & Geoff Moore for putting together an amazing Motorcycle Tour that showcased 2,000+ kms of Incredible roads, points of interest, and jaw dropping scenery! You guys ROCK!!!

Fellow riders on the trip were: Jeff Topham Robin Esrock Masa Takei, BE SURE to check them out on Facebook & Twitter : )

We shot a tonne of high definition video from multiple camera angles: Handlebar cam, helmet cam, rearview cam and also tripod shots. We now have to transfer it from our cameras & memory cards into Final Cut Pro then the editing can begin. The transfer rate is minute for minute, so this will take some time considering we have seven days of footage, so please be patient, it will be worth the wait.  We are looking forward to sharing this motorcycle adventure with you : )

Vridetv's banner arrived from Wizard Stitchery & Embroidery

by Editor on 06/03/14

wizard stitchery and embroidery

I'm sure by now you have seen the Ride Safe patches & waterproof stickers our sponsor Wizard Stitcher & Embroidery made for us. They did an incredible job on those and did an equally great job on this 3x6 banner that arrived yesterday. I'm so impressed with Wizard Stitcher & Embroidery's high level of quality, attention to detail and the fast turn around time! 

Here's a shot of it on the table minutes after the UPS guy left, I was like a little kid excited to see it,  I'm so happy the way it turned out. I originally had this made for the Trev Deeley Show n Shine and future events, but it's going to be hanging in my office till then!!!
Thank you for another Great job Wizard Stitcher & Embroidery

VRIDETV & Switch Vision team up for Trev Deeley Show n Shine in Vancouver

by Editor on 06/02/14


We are very pleased to announce that Vridetv and Switch Vision are teaming up for the Trev Deeley Motorcycles Show 'n Shine. Vridetv is sponsoring the V-Rod/Buell/Sport Bike trophy and Switch Vision is giving away one pair of their glasses. 

The world's first eyewear with a Magnetic Interchange Lens System for unparalleled convenience, speed and ease of use: an idea born of necessity.

The inventors of Switch demanded better sunwear options. Traditional fixed lens sunglasses work well in some light conditions, but not others. Mechanical interchange lens systems are clumsy and can be difficult to use. Contact lens wearers need plano sunglasses some days and Rx suns on others. Between carrying around multiple, bulky sunglasses, and pulling and prying mechanical interchange lenses in and out, we felt there had to be a better way. read more
