Who we are

Ride-out® - Where motorcycle enthusiasts meet to arrange their ride-outs. Designed in 2001 to initially cater for the needs of North West England’s Bikers, the Website has inevitably grown in all directions.

The purpose of the site, unlike most general biker sites, is to specifically arrange ride-outs with like minded people. The Ride-outs are always fun and well organised. There are
NO CHARGES to take part and website membership is totally FREE, and what’s more, you’ll soon be making new friends.

Ride-out® has over 1,000 members and its membership list continues to grow. Our members are encouraged to take part as riders or organisers and belong to a website that is very quickly becoming a motorcycling community and for some, a way of life. Our ride-outs get bigger and braver each year. The main business of Ride-out® is to get mutually minded bikers out on their bikes. Ride-outs predominantly start in Lancashire, Greater Manchester and Cheshire and end up in Derbyshire, Wales, Cumbria, Yorkshire, Northumberland, Durham and Scotland.

Our rides are thereabouts every Sunday during spring, summer and autumn and during the ‘season’ Saturday and mid-week too. Rides are arranged by the members for the members and generally led by
Ride-out Leaders (our more experienced or trained riders, or those who have demonstrated their ability to lead in the past). There are also rides that are family friendly! Yes, we do Pillion Rides, were riders are encouraged to bring their spouse or child as pillion. Understandably we tame these rides in terms of distance and style of riding.

How Ride-out® varies from many of the rufty-tufty biker Websites out there is that we try to keep the language down, avoid over use of adult rated material and welcome family members of all ages. We adopt the policy of “would you let your child look at that”? We do have children as members and they actively participate – perhaps they will be the bikers of the future! For the times when things go wrong and tempers fray, Ride-out has a dedicated team of Moderators who step in to diffuse any unnecessary ‘hot air’. Yes we all have arguments from time to time, but generally ‘group hug’ afterwards!

Unlike other biker sites, Ride-out® also does not condone the boy racer image of wheelie popping, knee down and stoppie is a must on the public highway sort of riding! We advocate sensible ‘there is a time and a place’ riding. We welcome all styles of motorcycles and believe in riding our machines to the best of our ability. We even have members who are IAM Observers and can point you in the right direction for an IAM course and one can provide advanced training at a modest fee. Your riding and life chances will improve through training.

You might be wondering about how can all of this be free? Simple really, all initial setup costs and running costs are met by the webmaster and donations or sponsorship is received on an annual basis from those members who feel they have received value from the site, or are able to contribute financially to the running costs of the site. There is no onus on any member to make a contribution and any monies gratefully received are made at the discretion of individual members.

Ride-out® has evolved over the last 15 years into a great place to be and the best thing about ride-out has to be the ride-outs! Much of the website arranging now goes on in our Facebook Group, so please remember to ask to be added to the group

Regards to you all

Paul Gibson, Webmaster
