Hard Road

Bernie Guindon and the Reign of the Satan's Choice Motorcycle Club



Now in paperback: The founding father of Canadian bikers shares the story of his fascinating life.

You could call Bernie Guindon the Sonny Barger of Canadian bikers (but not to his face). The founder of Satan’s Choice, Guindon led what was in the 1960s the second-largest biker club in the world (after the Hells Angels, which Bernie would join briefly in the early 2000s) to national prominence and international infamy. His life wasn’t all bikes and crime. He was also a medalist in boxing for Canada at the Pan Am Games. That tension between the very rough life he was born into and the possibility for success in the straight world (and how aspirations in each fed his success in the other) layer Guindon’s story, one of the great untold stories in biker history. Friends from the biker world and Guindon’s family have given extensive interviews for Hard Road, including his son, Harley, whose own depictions of prison time are some of the most searing you’ll ever read.
