 Ride magazine March 2015 cover

This month - Free 60 page Ride gear guide - it's your handy guide to choosing and buying the right gear for you - don't hit the shops without it!


Riding around on the first really warm Saturday of the year, I couldn’t help but notice loads of other people doing the same thing. OK, they might have told themselves (or their other halves) that they had an urgent mission 20 miles away. But really they were just going for a ride for the hell of it, probably for the first time in 2015. It was lovely. Not just the pleasure of the ride itself, but also the camaraderie between the various riders involved, many of them on new-looking small-capacity bikes.  Nod, wave, nod, wave, smile. Among the many highlights of the May issue of RiDE, on sale now, is a guide to getting your bike and your riding technique back up to speed now that the weather’s on our side once more. It takes just a few minutes to get back in the zone. And don’t forget to practise your nodding and waving!
Enjoy the issue

Features in this months' issue...

Yamaha Tracer

It’s one of the most talked-about new bikes of the year, not least because of its very competitive price. But how does the new Yamaha MT-09 Tracer compare when you put it on the road in the UK alongside two of its best-established all-round rivals, the Triumph Tiger Sport and Kawasaki Z1000SX.


Used Honda Fireblade buying guide

The short-lived 929 version can make an excellent road bike, with good ones available for £3000-£3500 and easily upgraded. We show you how to find the right bike for the right price.


Hidden roads in the South of France

Go just a little way off the beaten track and you’ll have some amazing biking roads to yourself, bathed in glorious sunshine (probably).


Every month we offer you a great subscription offer; this month you can get a free Oxford magnetic tank bag worth £39.99 when you sign up to either the print or digital edition, or if digital is more your thing, check out the RiDE magazine app on the Apple Newstand, Google Play and Nook by Barnes and Noble.
