Riding Nerdy: Finding Historical Markers
Do you like your motorcycle rides with a side of history-buff nerdiness? Well, then – locating and photographing historical markers might be right up your alley.

Surely I can’t be the only geek who likes to ride and likes to learn about the history of the places I pass through. Are you up for the informal challenge of doing some riding, taking some photos and maybe learning something along the way?
What are the rules and what do you win?
Nothin’ on both counts! Isn’t that great?
The informal challenge is nothing more than to get out and do some riding and share what you’ve found on your own blog. Easy-peasy.
Here are some websites that might help you find historical markers in your state:
- Historical Marker Database
- StoppingPoints.com – Historical Markers
- Waymarking.com – Historical Markers
