    Places are locations or stops that you make on your bike trips. Using the NAMA iPhone App, you can Check In to locations as you make your way around. Checking into locations can provide a means of keeping track of where you have been.

     

    When checking in to a Place, you can add commentary, perhaps describing the quality of food, the scenery, or the level of accomodation for motorcyclists. This can help other riders when they find themselves looking to go somewhere you have already been. Similarly, you can take a look at other Places people have been in order to plan your trip.

     

    The NAMA iPhone App will be available on the App Store soon.

    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.

    Once all of the Roads you would like to compare are selected and listed in the toolbar at the bottom of the page, click Compare All Button [Compare All]. 

     

    The Roads will be compared by the following attributes:

    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.

    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.

    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)

    We have discovered a problem where your logo may disappear during the process of Creating An Event

     

    This issue will affect you only under the following conditions:

     

    When creating an Event, if you forget to fill in a required field (e.g. forgot to select a Start/End Time) or make an invalid entry into one of the fields, you will be asked to correct your submission. An Error Message error message will appear at the top of the page. If you had already selected a file to upload as the Event Logo before clicking Save Changes and then got an error message, the Event Logo will be erased. Therefore, you will need to re-select the image file you would like to use for your Event Logo, correct the error, and then click Save Changes to create the event. Every time you attempt to submit an Event with an error in one of the fields, the Event Logo will have to be re-selected. 

     

    If you create the event and forgot to re-select the Event Logo, you can always go back and edit the Event Details in order to add the Event Logo.
