Owners/Editors, Jerry and Tracy Ripley have been in the Motorcycle Magazine and Motorcycle Events industry for years and are one of the hardest working couples you will find. Together they have assembled a staff of motorcycle enthusiasts who are equally as dedicated and passionate as they are. You will not find another free motorcycle magazine like Ride Hard Magazine.
Ride Hard Magazine is a high quality FREE monthly Motorcycle Magazine dedicated to the Midwest Motorcycle community. Though our main focus is motorcycles and the people who ride them, we also feature some of the hottest pre-1972 cars on the streets. From Harleys to Hondas and Hot Rods to Rat Rods, Ride Hard Magazine proudly caters to the hard working public that enjoys life on wheels.
We take Motorcycle Events coverage to the next level. Not only do we feature motorcycle events in Ride Hard Magazine, both Hard Copy and free online motorcycle magazine versions, we also upload hundreds of photos we take at these events to our free photo sharing section of this website as well as video’s to our Ride Hard Magazine YouTube Channel.
Our Motorcycle Events Calendar features not only Local Motorcycle Events, but Motorcycle Events across the Bi-State area and beyond. Don’t see your Motorcycle Events on our Calendar? Feel free to send it to us through our calendar page! It’s easy and once your event is approved by our admin, we will make it public within a day or two.
As a free motorcycle magazine we are always open to the public’s input and ideas. Always feel free to let us know what you think. Your opinions are important to us so explore Ride Hard Magazine’s website and come back often.
Thank you, and welcome to the Ride Hard Nation!
