Rider Now Magazine was launched in July 2009 by professional writer and photographer Valerie Smith. The initial goal of the publication was to provide cost effective advertising for businesses in Florida, while helping others.
The publication is now charity and benefit driven. It features the motorcycle lifestyles of individuals and groups. A portion of the Advertisers ad fee is used to fund charities and benefits for the less fortunate across the state
The magazine is partially funded by two law firms, The Fran Haasch Law Group, (LawFran.com), who provides Sponsorship funding to promote events for charities and benefits. And Erik Abrahamson who has an Exclusive agreement for advertising. (TheInjuryLawyers.com). These two firms make it possible to provide free and reduced advertising for people and groups in need, both in the magazine and on this website.
There is nothing more Noble than to give of yourself for the betterment of others. Valerie has been awarded the Standing Tall Award by the Shriners Hospital for Children for her donations to the Ocala Shrine Club. She is known all across the nation at Bike Events and Benefits for being Strong in her beliefs and love for God and others. "Please contact us if you need us." She always says.
