    A Road is a scenic, fun, or otherwise interesting route for motorcyclists. At rideNAMA.com, we encourage members to Add New Roads so that other riders can find new rides in their area. The Roads feature is also useful when planning a trip to an unfamiliar area.

     

    Use our Wishlist feature for keeping track of Roads you are interested in.

     

    You can search for a Road by Location.

     

    Within a listing for a Road, you may find a description of the Road as well as the location, price, road surface, and difficulty. The listing may also specify resources along the route such as gas stations, lodging, and restaurants.

     

    You can also find a Google Map of the exact route of the Road, given that the user who added the Road has included it.

     

    For more information about Roads, or for help adding a new road yourself (including how to create a map of the route), see our Help Section on the Roads feature.

    A listing for a Road is meant to be a comprehensive description of a given route that is of interest to motorcyclists. We encourage users of rideNAMA.com to contribute their own Roads but ask that they provide as many details as possible when they create the listing for the Road. Please see our Help Section on adding a Road for assistance.

     

    A complete Road listing will contain information about the route's difficulty, road surface, seasonal closings, cost, as well as directions to the Road and a Google Map of the exact route. Photos and videos of the Road may also be found in the Road listing.

     

    User reviews of the Road may also be helpful in planning a trip to a new area. Roads may also be compared using the Compare feature on rideNAMA.com.

    In order to define the exact route/location of a Road/Destination for which you are making a listing, you first need to go to Google Maps and create the map. Google Maps will generate an HTML code which can be copied into your listing on rideNAMA.com. This will create an interactive map of the Road you are adding.

     

    Here's how to make and add the map to your posting.

     

    Step-by-step Instructions for mapping a Road for your listing:

     

    1) Start by entering the start and end location of the Road/Destination in the "Get Directions" fields on Google Maps. If there is no address associated with the beginning or end, simply input a 'dummy' start and end location (Fig. 1). From here, you can drag the markers so that they are at the two ends of the route. You can also drag mid-sections of the route so that they exactly trace the route of the Road (Fig. 2).

     

    2) Once you are satisfied with the Google Map, click the icon that looks like a chain link and copy the HTML code (Fig. 3.)

     

    3) On rideNAMA.com, click the Overview Tab [Overview] tab while in the editor for the Road/Destiantion you are trying to map. Then, click the HTML icon [HTML] icon. A window will appear. Paste the HTML code from Google Maps (from step 2) into the window and click Update. (Fig. 4) *Note: If you are adding a New Road/Destination, you must first submit the form which asks for the Road's Title, description, etc... and then you will have access to the Overview Tab tab. If you have already added the Road, you can view the listing and click to access the Overview Tab tab.

     

    4) Click [Save Overview].

     

    Now when the listing for this Road/Destination is viewed, the exact route/location will appear on an interactive Google Map.

     

    If you are still having trouble, please email Roadster@rideNAMA.com with your issue.

    First...

    If you Add a New Road, you will be brought to a page where you fill in all of the details of your Road (i.e. Road Name, Description, Location [which can be made more exact on the next page], Photo, etc...). Fill in all of the required fields and then click Submit. On the next page, you will be able to define the exact route of the Road.

     

    If you are not sure how to complete a section of the New Road Listing, please refer to the Help section on Road Details. The details of a Road can be changed at any time by viewing the listing and clicking Edit.

     

    Next...

    After clicking Submit you will be brought to a page where you can complete your New Road listing in the Dashboard for this listing. Here, the exact location and overview of the Road can be input. Furthermore, additional photos and videos of the Road can be added the the listing.

     

    Important Items in the Dashboard:

    - The exact location of the Road can be specified by going to the Location tab on the left side of the page. Provided you entered a location on the first page, you can drag the marker of the Google Map - which now appears - to the location of the Road. (This is helpful if there is no exact address of the Road)

    - The exact route of the Road can be defined in the Overview tab on the left of the page. Click Here for exact instructions on how to do this.
