Lloydminster Mayor Gerald Aalbers needs your vote to save face and earn a $35,000 marketing package.
Voting for Lloydminster as Canada’s most motorcycle rider friendly community will prevent Aalbers from eating crow in front of Drumheller’s Mayor Heather Colberg.
“I hope you take the time to vote at riderfriendly.ca for your favourite city – and that would be the city of Lloydminster!” said Aalbers on a Facebook video.
The contest started with 140 communities and boiled down to Lloydminster and Drumheller as the two highest vote getters in the last round as the most rider friendly community of the previous 2017 riding season.
If Drumheller wins Canda’s Most Rider Friendly Community with the most votes Colberg has challenged Aalbers to show up in her town for Motorcycle Madness.
If Lloydminster wins Colberg says she will travel to the Border Bike Rally.
Aalbers, however has issued his own Facebook challenge suggesting the losing mayor has to travel to the winner’s city, to clean the streets for a day to make things even smoother for our biker friends.
To prevent Aalbers from pushing a broom near the back end of a dinosaur as he hinted he would if he had to, vote for Lloydminster by June 2 at midnight MST.
Canada’s Most Rider Friendly Community Contest is sponsored by Community Futures and the rider Friendly Business Association.
