Today we are featuring bronze sponsor RedMud Wheelers ATV Services.
Connor Bernard turned a hobby into a small business with his vision for RedMud Wheelers ATV Services. After working a factory position for 11 years, Connor says “it was time for a change.” Just as his business started up in September of 2020, Covid hit hard. Travel was non-existent and islanders had to find other ways to enjoy life. The demand for ATV/SXS skyrocketed and Connor says “there became a greater need for affordable services.”
Connor says he’s owned several ATV’s over the years and always supported the Federation and Clubs by purchasing trail passes and club memberships. He recognizes the importance of these contributions because it helps support the volunteers who are maintaining island trails in their free time.
Being strictly an ATV service business, RedMud Wheelers thrives on the growth of the ATV/SXS community all over the island. Connor says “people spend their hard earned money on their machines, the least we can do is give them an affordable option for their service and accessory needs.”
When asked how he would describe the ATV Community based on his own experience Connor says the sport is clearly growing on PEI and it is evident when clubs hold runs, fundraisers and events. The riders are supporting clubs and in return the clubs are generating money to keep the trails safe for everyone. This relationship makes it all happen.
When it comes to advice for riders regarding local businesses, Connor says “Supporting local businesses is the way to go.” Small businesses are a huge part of PEI and with their support only good things will come for the sport and ATV community.
Connors advice for other businesses thinking about supporting the ATV community, welcome them with open arms. The ATV community is full of great people and local businesses that are lucky enough to be close to island trail should do what they can to bring the ATV community in. Whether it’s food, gas or lodging it’s a large community to support.
We are incredibly grateful to RedMud Wheelers for being a PEI ATV Federation sponsor. This sponsorship means a great deal to Connor Bernard too. He’s hoping it’s a gateway to growing his small business. It’s exact exposure his business needs and a great way to give back to the ATV community in order to help sustain the trails on the island.
