Getting out on your bike and going for a run out is fun.....and yes riding around those same roads, going to the same place, having coffee and cake in your favourite spot is always good - but there is much more out there to be discovered and enjoyed. It is the aim here to share your ride-outs, favourite roads, your routes and destinations to assist other riders discover those good biking roads and places to go. But it doesn't just have to be about roads - there are a number of off-road 'green lanes' about if you happen to have the bike to ride them and no doubt lots of other great motorcycle spots if you know where to look. Local knowledge is by far the best - and by using yours - we can build this site to cover many areas far and wide so that, should you find yourself somewhere new, there will be a recommended ride/destination nearby.
So what are you waiting for?! Get stuck in and share your rides and destinations in the Somewhere To Ride forum.
Somewhere To Ride is designed not to be just another social-media site - but more of a dedicated resource for motorcyclists. Read all about how the project started. Help to make it grow!

"But I don't need this, I know where I'm going, I don't need a map, blah, blah" I hear you say but if you're anything like me, as much as I like riding my bike "just-because-I-can", I do enjoy a good ride out with a purpose - even if it's just to go for coffee and a bit of cake! So please take a look around the site - take a ride and most importantly get involved and share your rides.
