A very clean and fresh looking website has recently been released in BETA called Ridden.it.
The design of the website looks great, with very clear navigation and a very cool map integrated into the home page.
Now using a Google map API is nothing new to plot locations or spots on, but Ridden.it does it very well! Most of the ones we’ve seen in the past are very jittery and have a tendency to slow the main function of the site down but with Ridden.it is doesn’t seem to happen.

The map displays riding spots from around the UK for all styles of riding which include, Trials, Downhill, BMX and dirt jumping.
A very neat feature that we haven’t seen before is what Ridden are calling a “Trip Planner”. Which once you’ve signed up simply allows you to plan a journey to a spot that is located on the Ridden website. A very simple but effective feature to the website, and as more locations are added to the site this will become a fantastic resource for riders.
From the developers website Ridden.it is described as:
“Ridden.it is an online application, which allows action sports cyclists to plot the location of riding spots. Using an interactive map and community site features, users are able to provide feedback and information about a spot to inform future rider’s.” Glynn Phillips
Even though the site is currently in Beta mode, the site works well and we are looking forward to see the site grow.
