Message From Last Year's Winning Community:

As the event organizer for our annual Run to the Hills Memorial Rally and as one of the team behind the Wayside Fallen Riders Memorial Park here in Two Hills, I have to say what a great honour it has been to have our "Small town with a Big Future" recognized as Canada's Most Rider Friendly Community for 2015. This entire experience from the initial nominations, to the voting, the neck and neck race with Kaslo and finally the winning of the title has been amazing ... the community building that has been done here is truly wonderful. The recognition from the Riding community has been humbling. I am proud to be a member of both the community of Two Hills and the motorcycling community here in Canada. The impact of this win was immediately recognizable with increased traffic through our town and at our local businesses. Despite the major road work on the Veteran's Memorial Highway that is the main north south corridor through our little town there were and still are a steady stream of riders coming to experience the warmth and welcoming spirit of Two Hills Alberta. Our event saw a 20% increase in attendance and considering the harsh economic climate here in Alberta that truly is remarkable. I would like to thank Belt Drive Betty and Community Futures for giving us the opportunity to showcase our town to riders from all over this glorious country and for giving that same opportunity to all of the small communities across Canada to shine and show the riding community what we have to offer. I encourage everyone to stop and explore Canada's Rider Friendly Communities.
Respectfully
