Welcome to the RiDE website, the online home of Britain’s most useful motorcycle magazine!
Britain’s most useful motorcycle magazine has just got better. RiDE has always been about helping you get more from your time on two wheels, and now we’ve given it a fresh new look designed to make it easier to use and enjoy.
View our new magazine:
There’s more about used bikes, more about kit, more about travel, more about DIY and more about new bikes, always with an eye on value and practicality.
The new look kicks off with the April issue, which features 15 great used bikes for less than £1500, cheap riding gear, a guide to beating your fuelling gremlins, first rides on three new-for-2014 BMWs, and much more.

The big key features in the latest issue:
Bargain used bikes
There are some brilliant high-performance bikes available for pushbike money on the secondhand market. We select 15 of the best used bargains, and show you how to track down your own £1500 deal of a lifetime.
How to get kitted out top to toe for under £500 – that’s less than some people spend on a helmet alone. Good gear at great prices, without compromising safety or weather protection.
Our new in-depth road test
We’ve devised a new approach to road testing: a mix of B-roads, motorways, commuting, two-up riding and more – a real-world combination designed to stretch a new bike to its limits and find out how it performs in the real world. First up, Kawasaki’s new Z1000SX.
New Travel section
Use our new Travel section to plan your trips, with great routes in Britain and across Europe, readers' travel stories and great advice from seasoned touring experts.
DIY for everyone
Get closer to your bike with Hands On, our new section helping you understand what makes your bike tick. Whatever your level of experience and expertise, we show you the jobs you can do to keep your bike running smoothly.
