What is EatSleepRIDE.com?

Maybe you don’t see the need for this, but some of you might be paranoid. If you do want to change your password, you can do so by clicking the Change Password tab. Enter your old password (so we know it’s you) and then enter your new password twice (so we can catch mistakes), save and you’re good to go.
Sometimes, you see something you want to save for later. Sure, you could hit Command-d and bookmark it, but we’ve also implemented an EatSleepRIDE site wide bookmarking tool called + My garage. Save all your favourite content in one place for easy RE-USE or reference.
You can share different types of stories on EatSleepRIDE, so feel free to dive right in using the CREATE button .
Pretty much everything needs a title, which is usually the way people will decide if they want to read it, so make it a good one. Once you’re done telling your story, hit POST to share it with the community. Depending on the story type, we ask for some additional information. You’ll get the hang of it quickly. We’ve tried to make it obvious and friendly when it’s not what we expected. Feel free to drop us a line at feedback@EatSleepRIDE.com and let us know what we could do better.
We’re a community. Just like my neighbor doesn’t mind me borrowing his wrenches from time to time (even though I’ve no idea what they are for) feel free to RE-USE the content on the site.
If you’re logged in, you’ll see a RE-USE icon by just about anything. Click it to start a new POST and we’ll automagically embed the story for you. Once it’s saved, everyone will see the original as part of your post. Think of it this way: You found the most awesome route on the EatSleepRIDE and you want to let your buddies know how great it was. Just RE-USE icon the Route and add your experiences, images and videos.

The GALLERY tab shows you the most recently added images to the platform.
MY GARAGE will show you all the stories you’ve saved on the platform because you wanted to remember them.
MY STUFF shows you all of your posts starting with the most recent.
And the SEARCH bar makes it easy to search for something specific for RE-USE.
