NEW FEATURE: GETAWAYS - 3 SIMPLE STEPS TO YOUR GROUP RIDE

Published by RISER at December 11, 2017 in Articles

Getawaysblogoverview

Every time we make appointments with friends to go for a ride, countless messages are sent back and forth, or groups of people are set up on social media or messenger services to facilitate communication. Many of you have written to us describing that they know exactly the same situation. So that’s why we thought:

what if all this was possible on the same platform, where we also track our trips, network with our friends and discover new routes?

With the new GETAWAY feature, it is now possible to organise trips directly within the RISER app and in just a few steps: you can create a getaway and choose different categories depending on what you want to do – whether it's a short ride for a coffee after work, a longer trip on the weekend or even a multi-day tour, you can show your friends what to expect straightaway within the getaway, when they come along.

The same goes for the riding style: has it ever happened to you that you have agreed to go on a trip with friends, but then you have noticed that the style of riding doesn't quite correspond to what you expected – or what you just wanted to do? You can specify the riding style when you create a getaway and have the choice between cruising, dynamic touring and a sporty riding style.

Set a meeting point and start time on your getaways so that everyone who joins the trip knows right away. You can also give a title to your trips and choose a suitable picture for the getaway. And the most important thing comes at the end:

all friends you want to have with you on the trip can be added by invitation! If a friend is not yet using RISER, he or she will need to create an account so that they can be added (in the future, it will also be possible to send invitations directly to friends who have not yet installed RISER – we are working on it).

The current version of the getaways is a first version of this brand-new feature – we're still working on improvements and optimizing the function; some things will be released soon and make the getaway function even more practical for you. If you can think of anything we should consider, please send us feedback by email to info@riserapp.com! Please don't forget: we do our best, but we are still a small team, so be patient if sometimes something doesn't work as well as it should – as you already know, we always try to fix bugs as soon as possible and include your wishes in the app’s development!

Rate and review RISER on the App Store and on social media and let us know if there is anything we can do for you!

Have fun trying out the new feature!
Your RISER team

HOW RISER WILL GET YOU STARTED IN 2018

Published by RISER at January 15, 2018 in Articles
Before talking about 2018, we really gotta tell you something: When you launch an App, nobody tells you how to do it, what to expect and where to pay special attention. At least for us it was that way, it was a jump into cold water. One year later, you’d expect to be more prepared and cool about everything but: NO, we’re NOT! We do everything ourselves, inhouse...

THE WEISSBORN STORY EPISODE 6 - NEW YEAR IN NEPAL

Published by RISER at December 21, 2017 in Articles
Darkness. My hotel room in India on the border with Nepal. No window. Bleary-eyed, I glance out the door and walk towards the balcony. Outside the fog is still thick. Reducing visibility down to less than a few metres. One can only wait and see (or not see). I'm having a milk tea and some cigarettes at a street vendor. Slowly, I can feel the first rays of sunshine...

TRIUMPH TIGER 1200 - A TEST BY MOTORRADMAGAZIN

The dried-up river bed blurs in front of my burning eyes. Drops of sweat tickle on the scalp under my motocross helmet. Even the Gore-Tex membrane seems to have long since given up its mission of allowing water vapour to pass through to the outside of my riding suit. In the sauna, now would be the time to pour water onto the rocks. But it’s late autumn in southern Spain and I never thought I would get so sweaty when riding a motorcycle at just over ten degrees Celsius...

Well, this morning starts early as usual, as my military service gave me one of the best and worst traits in the world, not being able to sleep well. So, I get up to watch the sunrise in one of my favourite spots. From my home in Shellharbour I travel through Port Kembla, Scarborough, Coalcliff, all the way up to Bald Hill. Which is where I want to watch the sunrise. Getting there at 5 o’clock, as bright orange glow starts to hit the Horizon...

The morning sunshine at Loch Ken wakes me up on Friday the 18th of August and reminds me to pack up my tent and everything that belongs to it. My breakfast is quick and sufficient and I’m off to the next ferry from Scotland to Northern Ireland. I buy the ticket for the short crossing directly on the spot. If you are alone or in pairs you can be so spontaneous...
