They're called Brodside (rhymes with roadside) Attractions and they're quickly becoming a sensastion on social media.

Edmonton natives Travis Fairweather and Randy Sneep started their page to catalogue the many roadside attractions they have come across while riding their motorcycles around Alberta.

"I like a good pun, so we sort of took the word roadside, because we sort of go around and check out roadside attractions and then, you know, we're a couple of bros, so we went with Brodside Attractions as sort of our moniker there," explained Fairweather.

"We really wanted to just travel around on weekends, kind of explore and get some good trips in," Sneep chimed in. "For us, it became an issue of what do you want to do, just driving around is just not that rewarding and so we thought why don't we start checking out all these big roadside attractions, you know, world's largest blank, and see what we can find."

Brodside Attractions was founded in April 2014 and since then, the pair have visited dozens of roadside attractions all around Alberta, as far north as the Yukon and south into Montana, where they were last weekend, travelling the scenic Highway to the Sun.

They visited Drumheller in early July, then returned to the valley to make sure they didn't miss any dinosaurs the first time around.

"Drumheller was a huge part of my childhood: we used to come for family vacations here all the time and I remember playing on the dinosaurs and all that stuff," noted Fairweather. "As soon as we started this project, getting down to Drumheller (with the) World's Largest Dinosaur, World's Smallest Church, stuff like that (were) huge items on our list."
