Commonly asked questions:
How often does the magazine come out & how can I get a subscription?
We have a new edition for you each month. You can sign up on our HOME page to have Virginia Rider delivered to your email inbox every month. You can read the current issue, as well as back issues, on the MAGAZINE page here on our site.
I’m a business owner & would like to advertise in Virginia Rider. What size ads do you offer? Do I have to sign a long term contract?
We have a variety of ad sizes such as a business card, quarter page, half page, full page or we can design a custom ad size just for you. You can have your ad placed in a premium location such as our front cover, back cover or the centerfold, which is a 2 page center spread ran vertically or horizontally. We also have available ad space on page headers or footers. There are NO contracts & you can cancel your ad at anytime before the 15th of the month for the following month's issue.
How much is a business ad?
Our pricing is much different than other magazines. We base our prices on the season, duration of your advertising & your preferred location of the ad - not the one size/price fits all. We often run "Specials" for limited periods. Email us & we’ll help you find the perfect ad with the best price to fit your business needs.
If you offer online sales, we definitely can help you drive your web-sales higher, especially during the colder months. No matter what the weather is like outside, Virginia Rider is here to bring your business to our region's motorcycle communities each and every month of the year.
I would like to advertise in Virginia Rider but I don’t have an ad already made for my business. Do you design ads?
Yes we do! We have a professional Design & Layout team that can make an amazing ad for your business for free (first ad only), and additional ads at a low affordable rate. Send us an Email & we'll be happy to work together with you to make the perfect ad for your business!
How can I get my business listed in the Rider-Friendly Business Directory?
Basic Rider Friendly Business listings are free!
Our full time advertisers are automatically included, at no extra charge, in the Rider-Friendly Business Directory page with links to their site and/or social media pages.

A listing is $100 for 1 year & they include links to your email, pages & site if preferred.
How do we submit events into the events calendar?

A special note for businesses:
We’ve been publishing motorcycle magazines for nearly 20 years & we understand the needs of businesses in the motorcycle industry. Even when the “off season” months arrive, we encourage you to continue advertising so that our readers know that you're still open for business. You can't afford NOT to advertise during the colder months. We are where you need to be which is in front of tens of thousands of riders every month! We hope to hear from you soon to join us for the exciting months ahead!
