Free Ride is a competitive social networking mobile application. It is focused on an older, ex-punk, skateboarding demographic. These “free riders” no longer have the luxury of being the wild epitome of skateboarding. They may have real jobs, children, and do their best to live sustainably. I feel there is a community such as this and these people still want to remain active in skate culture even if they represent a more refined model of skater.
Free Ride is a way for users to challenge each other and build relationships through races, technical advancement, or DIY projects within their community.
