This site was originally a promotion for a motocross track outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Beeline MX was built by Brad Mathison on south US-75 near Beggs and the original web page was nothing more than an aerial photo and directions. After about a dozen e-mails from other states we saw a need to list other nearby riding areas. That quickly grew to a statewide listing of Oklahoma tracks and ORV areas. It wasn't long before the list included other states and the name Places 2 Ride was coined.
In 1998, when Places2ride.com began, the emphasis was on dirt riders and the motocross tracks, riding areas and trails that off-roaders thrive on. Eventually that grew to include twisties and scenic highways all over America, and even the world.
Brad and I keep riding the twisties and backroads looking for those great places to ride. We've even begun shooting video to add to the website.

And this site continues to help motorcycle riders find fun places to ride their bikes— no matter whether it's a motocrosser, sportbike or cruiser.
