  • Allstate turns to riders for motorcycle safety ideas

    Facebook vote will determine five $5,000 winners in Good Ride Grant contest

    From an Allstate press release issued Aug. 8

    Allstate announced today the newest initiative in its Rider Protection Project, a series of programs focused on making the roads a safer place to ride. The Allstate Good Ride Grant contest will award a combined total of $25,000* to winners with the best ideas for advancing motorcycle safety and awareness. The Good Ride Grant contest joins Rider Risk Map, Once is Never Enough and other rider advocacy initiatives, all part of Allstate's commitment to protecting riders.

    Now through Aug. 31, contest applicants may submit their Good Ride Grant submissions through the designated tab on Allstate Motorcycle's Facebook page. Entries are welcome from anyone, including local governments, dealerships, rider clubs and individuals.

    "Riding a motorcycle presents a feeling of freedom, adventure and camaraderie with fellow riders, but we also know the risks that come along with it," said Keith Rutman, Allstate vice president, Emerging Businesses. "The Good Ride Grant program allows Allstate to continue our mission of protecting riders while also keeping an open ear to the riding community and what they feel is important."

    The first 1,000 contest entries to be submitted before Aug. 31 will be reviewed and finalists will be chosen by a six-person judging committee, made up of Allstate representatives and a diverse collection of motorcycle industry professionals, including custom motorcycle builder Rick Fairless.
    "I'm proud to partner with Allstate on an issue that has always been top of mind for me, and I think that the Good Ride Grant program is a great way to empower our riding community to help each other protect what is a lifestyle for so many of us by making it as safe as possible," said Fairless.

    Joining Fairless on the judging committee are Rutman; Rusty Creed, Allstate agency owner; Rod Krois, Indian Motorcycle's marketing director; Bryan Harley, Motorcycle USA editor; and Don Becklin, Motorcycle Superstore/Motorcycle USA founder and Motorsport Aftermarket Group's retail group president.

    In September, the judges will determine the top 15 finalists. The finalists will be featured on Allstate Motorcycle’s Facebook page, where fans can vote for their favorite ideas. The five finalists with the highest overall contest scores by Thursday, Oct. 31, will each receive a $5,000* grant to help put their ideas into action.

    For complete details on the Allstate Good Ride Grant contest and how to submit an idea, visit Allstate Motorcycle’s Facebook page and click on the Good Ride Grant tab.

    *The approximate retail value of each of the five prizes is $6,400, which includes $1,400 to help offset, but not eliminate, any tax liability associated with the acceptance of the prize. Each prize winner is solely responsible for all taxes imposed on the acceptance of the prize.
