SXS We Ride
Let’s face it, none of us have the time, or patience, to sit around for hours researching and reading Google reviews for new off-road parks to ride at. And, if you’re anything like us, chances are, you will just revert to the familiar and visit a local park that you have rode 1,000 times before, just to avoid having to read one more article titled “Off-road Parks in the U.S” that features more ads than park recommendations. If any of this sounds familiar, then you will be pleased to hear that we have officially put an end to your endless hours of Google scrolling, and found a one-stop shop that will give you all of the trail and event information, along with just about any additional resources that you need in regards to your SXS!
SXS We Ride has officially gone where no man (or internet search engine) has gone before and compiled a site of trail locations and closures, trail and product reviews, event locations and dates, and more. We talked with Brian Gagne, the creator of the SXS We Ride blog, and got the inside scoop about where the idea came from, what their goals are for expansion, and what we can expect from them in the future.
After hours of scouring the internet for new trails to ride, Brian found that there were no SXS specific sites that provided all of the information that he was looking for. As an avid rider, and RZR owner, Brian was always looking for new areas to explore and events where he could connect with other like-minded guys (and gals), but kept falling short. In an attempt to solve, not only his problem, but what he assumed was also the problem of other SXS owners, he began compiling a list of all of the parks or places where riding was conducive in a SXS, and that was where SXSWeRide.com was born. The site launched in April of 2022 and quickly gained a following, making it one of the fastest growing sites in the UTV industry!
Over time, the site has taken a life of it’s own, and expanded past just listing trail locations and added event dates and locations, honest product reviews for some of the most popular parts and accessories on the market, and epic phots and videos of some great riding weekends! As a fulltime salesman outside of the UTV world, Brian has devoted his free time to continue to grow and improve the site. He is currently reviewing new platforms to move the site to be more interactive and promote future growth and expansion, and plans to continue to cater SXS We Ride to be the one-stop-shop for all information regarding your SXS.
