Long Distance Riders requires you to complete the LDR form LINK for documentation for your starting and ending point. Both the beginning and ending form must be completely filled out and signed by a witness. They have also added a log page LINK for you to document the times and cities and towns you passed through on your ride.
Someone other than yourself must sign as a witness. Wherever you decide to start and end, they must have “official” signed documentation. Please include your witness’ name and address so they may contact them for verification if necessary.
Keep all your receipts along the way.
While on your Long Distance Ride you will be stopping along the way for gas, water, lunch, etc. Keep all your receipts as this will help to maintain a log of your route and often contain the date and time. During the Long Distance Riders review of your documentation we will be checking to see if the receipts went in accordance to the route you documented in your records to Long Distance Riders.
Long Distance Riders would also like for you to send them your email address and phone number so they can call if they have any problems reading or identifying your route, or need to ask you questions regarding your trip in general.
Also send your payment for certification to receive your patch, decal, frame and certificate. If you would like to purchase other items at this time, payment for these items must be included as well. Use the merchandise form for listing items you wish to purchase. Check the Long Distance Riders website LINK periodically as they plan to include more Long Distance Riders items for sale in the near future.
