"Biker culture is about brotherhood, authenticity, acceptance, and freedom."


Episode Summary

In this episode of The RebelRebel Podcast, host Michael Dargie sits down with JD Dubois, the spirited force behind Freedom Biker Tours, nestled in the picturesque landscape of BC's Interior. A conversation that travels through the scenic roads of JD's life, delves into the essence of biker culture, and unveils the throttle-powered journey of Freedom Biker Tours across Canada. JD, with his feet firmly on the pegs of entrepreneurship and his eyes on the horizon, shares the story of how a thesis transformed into a booming motorcycle tourism venture, putting Canada on the global map as a premier motorcycle touring destination.

A seasoned rider, JD recounts his early dalliances with adrenaline-fueled adventures, the birth of Freedom Biker Tours from the academic lanes of Royal Roads University, and the mission to reignite the core values of old-school biker culture—brotherhood, authenticity, and freedom. As the conversation cruises, it's clear JD's passion is not just about the ride; it's about the connections made, the cultures explored, and the open road as a path to inner peace and global understanding. This episode is a tribute to the rebels, the dreamers, and those who believe in the power of two wheels to make a big world seem just a little bit smaller.
