Jeff - over at VRIDETV - has been at it again. He's posted a new HD video that you might want to take a look at. Here's all the details:

This new HD video features motorcycle riding on the Confederation Bridge between Bayfield, New Brunswick and Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island. 

This is the World's Longest bridge over ice-covered waters at 12.9 kilometers in length and 11 meters wide. Construction started on October 7, 1993 and was completed in 1997 winning multiple international engineering awards.

Red Island Run - PEI motorcycle rally success

The first annual PEI - "Red Island Run" took place this past weekend in beautiful Prince Edward Island and it seems to have been a success; though there's not much in the news yet or on the Red Island Run website.

I haven't seen reports of actual numbers of attendees yet but organizers were said to be expecting 1500 people.


So, if you were there send us some pictures or information about the event!

PEI - it's not just about Anne of Green Gables

There's a new attraction coming to PEI in the summer of 2010 - a motorcycle rally. The rally is aptly named, the Red Island Run Motorcycle Rally, for the Island's famous red soil.

It'll be the inaugural year for the event and hopes to attract 1,000 motorcyclists and 1,500 visitors. Tourism Charlottetown is on-board and jointly announced the event with the Red Island Run organizing committee on Friday.

If the event attracts the numbers they're expecting it could provide economic impact of about $1.5 million. Hopes are that it will grow as people discover what Prince Edward Island has to offer as a tourist destination.

The weekend rally (Aug. 27-29, 2010) includes a poker run with proceeds going to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of P.E.I., a motorcycle parade, entertainment, vendor village, and trade show.

The trade show will feature demo rides from various motorcycle manufacturers, including Harley Davidson, a Dyno, and other various exhibitors.

Check out the Red Island Run website for more detail as it becomes available. You can also call the Bell Aliant Festival Hotline at 1-800-955-1864.
