RIDE TEXAS® is a travel/road trip/day trip magazine for Texas motorcyclists. Each issue is a motorcycle ride guide that not only shows you how to get there, but why you should go. Routes are created and articles written by long-time Texas riders who have defintely taken the roads less traveled by and we share them with you in each quarterly edition.
Each issue includes custom full-page route maps, designed in-house by our own cartographer. We're especially excited about our RoadScape 3D® maps, which debuted in 2013. Along with the maps are the GO Plans containing pages of information about food stops, things to do, and points of interest
Advertising is limited to around 25% in RT as opposed to most magazines, where ads often take up 60% of the pages. In RIDE TEXAS® you get the beef.
Although it's the opinion of you, our reader, that is most important, we are still very proud that RIDE TEXAS® has received multiple awards for excellence from both the Houston and Dallas Press Clubs.
There are other motorcycle magazines out there, but none covers riding and Texas like RIDE TEXAS®!
Our prime directive is to take no sides in the "my bike is better than your bike" wars that divide the motorcycle community. Just giddy-up and go!
